Oversize items like bicycles are difficult to stock and display, and hard for customers to conveniently handle for a “How’s it feel” trial. These bike hoists get the product high to draw a crowd and at eye view for inspection. But to me an essentially horizontal product displayed vertically always subtly violates expectations. But what alternatives does a storeman have? I did not get to work the hoist so I cannot comment on functionality. CLICK the thumbnail for a closer view. Maybe you can figure out the workings.
