    Hopefully they’ll discount,.$279 isn’t competitive.

    This lift design (painted red) is available from Craftsman, eBay, etc. for $80-100. I’ve had the Craftsman for years. It’s sturdy, no worries with touring bikes.

    I guess the DS logo adds value, much like the logos on our Asian computers, phones and tablets.

    agree with Chuck C. Except for the color and logo, this is IDENTICAL to the Craftsman lift I have has for years. $109.00. I wonder who actually makes the unit…..

    Is almost identical to the one I got on sale at PEP BOYS for $60. But hey if Harley can charge hundreds extra for a 2 tone paint job why can’t DS ;).

    Looks like another pretty generic lift. Also no mention of suitability for Dynas which have a frame flange sticking down on one side only.

    Not exactly a technological marvel. Not very many people that don’t have one of these at a much lower price.

    I spent the extra $$ ($140 on sale) on the Harbor Freight aluminum bike lift 10 years ago and it works great plus it’s light and easy to move around which is kind of an issue in my crowded garage. There is only one thing to know about it before working on a bike with it all the way up; use the bar that goes through both sides then lower it down onto that bar. It firms it up. Otherwise it will be too wobbly. Handles touring size bikes just fine.

    The $300 ride on full size lift from HF for home use is great too. Just need to add the right front wheel holder and take the time to throw on a couple safety straps. Again; works great for touring size bikes. Not a good lift for someone who uses them daily though; neither is the smaller one but for home use they are both great. I also have a basic scissor lift so I can raise the bike to pull a wheel when on the full lift or to have for the 2nd bike if needed. Between the 3; all bases are covered.

    While I understand that Sears and Harbor Freight sell lifts that are “similar” to this, don’t be so quick to pass judgement.

    I mean, you get what you pay for. I’m sure that if you compare the two lifts side by side, there are different features and better quality with the Drag lift.

    I am as cheap as the rest, but I have a similar Bikers Choice lift from about 20 years ago. It cost $300 back then. I have seen all of the $89.99 lifts and can tell you that yes, they both will lift your bike up to remove wheels and service your bike. But when you actually compare them side by side, you really notice how cheap and cheesy the Harbor Freight lift is.

    Drag Specialties is very reputable and they aren’t out to ream you just because their name is on the rubber pads.

    1500 lb capacity is way more sturdy than a Chinese 1000 lb model. Jack quality and capacity is also a factor.

    Just Sayin.
