Assembly instructions for the Bicyclejack

Mounting the Bicyclejack on a suitable mounting surface (see below for replacement of the gas spring).

Tip: One Bicyclejack can be mounted in a higher position without any problems (which also favours the parking behaviour), several Bicyclejacks can also be mounted closer or further apart. Minimum room height when mounted at identical level: 190cm / minimum room height when mounted with 20cm height offset: 210cm.

The asymmetrical design of the Bicyclejack results in the following distance dimensions to lateral objects:
Top mounting hole of the Bicyclejack Twist to obstacle on the left (wall, cupboard etc.): ≥ 28 cm
Top mounting hole of the Bicyclejack Twist to obstacle on the right (wall, cabinet etc.): ≥ 45 cm
Top mounting hole of Bicyclejack Basic to obstacle left & right (wall, cabinet etc.): ≥ 35 cm
Distance dimensions from bicycle lift to bicycle lift when mounted at offset heights: ≥ 35 cm
Distance from bicycle lift to bicycle lift when mounted at identical height: ≥ 70 cm

The dimensions given are based on a bicycle with a handlebar width of 65 cm and a total length of 180 cm. If your bikes deviate from this due to larger dimensions, adjust the dimensional specifications accordingly.

Replacement of the gas spring:

Basically: A necessary replacement of the gas cylinder due to a bicycle change (bicycle is therefore heavier or lighter than the weight specification of the already mounted Bicyclejack) is possible without much effort. It doesn't matter which gas cylinder is to be used, all of our products are compatible with all Bicyclejacks.

The lever arm should be in the upper position. This is first secured against falling down. Then loosen the locking ring on the bolt of the "lever arm" / gas cylinder attachment. The gas cylinder is supported and the bolt can be removed. Now lift the lever arm a little bit upwards, the eye of the gas pressure damper slips out of the mounting. The gas pressure damper is now exposed on one side. Loosen the nut for the fastening gas pressure shock absorber / "central frame Bicyclejack" and remove the screw afterwards, the old cylinder is now free and the new cylinder can be inserted - the assembly is the opposite of the previous description.

Further details and disposal instructions Subject Gas pressure cylinder (manufacturer's data):


Working temperature range from -30 to +80 °C.

Permissible number of strokes (full strokes) 6 per minute.

Continuous operation after 30 000 strokes: Maximum pressure loss 15%. The continuous running behaviour varies according to stroke length and extension force.

Nominal temperature: 20 °C.

Example for force F1 = 500 N at 20 °C:

+ 35 °C + 5 % = 525 N

- 16 °C - 12% = 440 N


Gas springs are filled with a pressure between 20 and 250 bar and must therefore be depressurized before scrapping.

For safety reasons, the following procedure must be followed:
- Lightly clamp the pressure tube in a vice.
- Saw open the pressure tube perpendicular to the axis in an area between 30 and 35 mm from the pressure tube bottom.


2- Use a hand saw suitable for metal.
3- Place a protective cloth over the saw blade.

Stop sawing as soon as you hear hissing noises.

Degassing is complete when the piston rod can be moved freely by hand.


The filling medium used (nitrogen) is neutral and part of the earth's atmosphere. Its release therefore does not pose a chemical hazard.

The other components (except for the oil) are mainly made of steel. The removal of these components is equivalent to recycling steel.

Under no circumstances may the oil contained in the device be spread in the environment (risk of pollution of ground water) or burned by the user, but must be disposed of in accordance with the relevant national regulations.
