Storing extra-large or heavy items like bikes or skis isn't always easy. Bulky gear may be too large to keep on the ground but when stored too high, it can be a hazard to take down. A pulley system makes for an easy and elegant solution. A pulley hoist, with or without shelving, is relatively easy to install and will save your shoulders and back lots of wear and tear. After that, it's a cinch to pull the bike out of storage—no ladder necessary.
