Put the claw on your bike just like good old Baron von Raschke. The Gladiator Claw securely holds your bike off the floor, reducing the clutter in your garage. Yeah, you could use a hook, but trying to wrestle a 50lb bike onto a hook above your head is harder in practice than it sounds on paper.
With the Gladiator Claw you lift the bike up and push the tire against the plunger pad, and the claw grabs your bike tire. To remove the bike, push it up until the tire pushes the plunger pad, and the claw will release the tire.
The heavy-duty die-cast aluminum arms will securely hold bikes up to 75lbs — what exactly are you riding that weighs that much? — and the arms are covered with soft thermoplastic grips so they won’t scratch the rims.
We couldn’t find many sources online yet, but the Gladiator Claw has only been out for a short time. If you have to have one now, you’ll pay $60 at Amazon.
