The listing implies that they would actually 'hang; (as in off one wheel) wouldn't lowering the mount so the rear wheel sat on the floor (or vice versa) take nearly all the weight off the mount!?
Thanks for the lecture, I didn't build the wall and I've no reason to expect a great job either.. I've thought of setting the back wheel down, but I expect it's the weight of the bike hanging that keeps it secure / straight, what do you think?
Sorry if I came across as a bit of an a*se - it's only because I've seen so many botch jobs that you wouldn't believe and so I tend to be over cautious.
I've seen a plasma bring a stud wall down, well actually it was about 30' from the vertical (mind that had no fixings in the top rail whatsoever)
I've seen the c.70' to vertical and on the back wheel work and it's what I'm going to have to do - so will be experimenting in the next few weeks
