The Gear Up® Lean Machine gravity bike rack provides affordable, secure, and convenient storage of two bikes in an apartment, garage, or anywhere there is available wall space. Its storage-arm assemblies adjust independently up and down to assure parallel storage with the floor, while soft, vinyl-covered cradles protect the bike frames. The Lean Machine is constructed of high-carbon steel with a smooth, black powder-coat finish.

Comments about Gear Up Lean Machine Gravity Bike Rack:
The design of this storage rack is great because it doesn't have to be bolted or screwed to the wall (though it does come with optional attachment hardware in case your floor or wall isn't quite level, or if you want to use the rack for bike maintenance). But the rack's assembly design is awful.
I had a hard time putting the thing together due to the imprecision of the machined parts. It's a very simple assembly, but the bolt holes in the pole pieces did not line up in several of the joints, making it very difficult or impossible to bolt some of the pieces together. Frustrating. I tried to enlarge some of the holes with a file but that didn't work. Ultimately, I had to disassemble and reassemble the unit a few times and try switching identical/interchangeable pieces around in order to find combinations that worked, and even then it came down to forcing bolts at tough angles. In the end, I got all pieces bolted except for the top piece, which will just have to stay in place on its own.
What should have been a painless assembly ended up taking over an hour due to poor parts construction. Otherwise this is a decent storage rack. I've had two road bikes mounted on it for the past few weeks and it seems to be holding them without issue.
