Abba Sky lift

Postby duke63 » 07 Oct 2018, 21:04

Got a little bit of spare cash from selling a few bike bits. Enough to buy an Abba skylift.

Anyone used or got one? I'm trying to see any downside before splashing the cash but cant see any. Would be very useful to have. bending down for long periods gets harder to do.

Looks like a good bit of kit.

And I’m with you on the bending over. I’m starting to regret the way I treated my body and took it for granted in my 20’s & 30’s. :(

I've toyed with getting one i have to say and will probably do so once my garage is boarded out.

I quite fancy something like this rather than an abba.

Similar price too.

They are a good bit of kit.
The only problem I have heard about is people not fitting it properly in the initial vertical position. Not really the lifts fault.

Hasn't @Blade got one of these? Defo someone has one as i seem to remember someone talking about these 2 or 3 years ago?!

As for the Abba I was looking at these through the summer. Would love one, don't even need the full out top of the deck model for it to be a cracking bit of kit. Reasonably priced (for what i saw) and quality bits of kit. Also can ditch the old paddock stands (unless using for track) and Abba can take over!

Let us know what you decide
