We have a similar system and it is NOT working for us very well. Bikes
with baby seats on the back or touring handlesbars take up more than the
alloted width; kids bikes and stroller tend to accumulate in FRONT of
the hung-up bikes; some people don't have the strength to lift their
bikes that high; the alternate spaces don't get used because of the
width issue; etc.

It works OK as STORAGE but if you use your bike every day it is a job to
move others out of the way and wrestle your out.

ANybody have any other system that works?
