I was looking into something like this: http://www.performancebike.com/shop/...tegory_ID=6600
from performance and was wondering if anyone had one of thse...how tall their ceiling was and their bikes top height (from the ground to top of my saddle, which is the highest point) mine is 39". Wonder how they've worked out for people...any info appreciated.
I like it -- tho I haven't put my bikes on it yet -- cuz I bought extra arms so it'll hold up to four bikes and with the long arms on the front, I think I can buy extra 'feet' to hold an extra set or two of wheels. Also, with the two arms spread a bit apart and on a stable base, I think I can do some bike maintenance. I'm in an apartment, no garage or other work space. I bought a heavy duty 3'x5' work mat to go under the stand, so when I do work, I won't ruin the carpet.
The only reason I considered the one you're looking at is cuz it's better aesthetically.
hope that helps.
Colnago Master XL, Bianchi Via Nirone 7, Marinoni Fango

Unfortunately the tubes that are supposed to match where cut wrong 1 1/2" off . So I'm going to return it and try again. However two people did comment on how great it is while I was waiting in line to pay tho.
