    Good find! Had I known, I may have gone for the bell shaped MH pendants. with this bike fixture, maintenance would be a piece of cake because of the pulleys!

    Thanks!
    Yeah as long as you have something solid to bolt this into you would be all set...

    How are your new lights working out JP?

    Well I saw this picture before and liked the idea but am not too sure how secure it is. I think my hood weighs twice as a bicycle, a lot more are at stake under it too. What if...

    I think it would work if you bolt it on a stud in the ceiling. If you are worried about it, you could put an eyehook off to the side and run a cable to lamp as a safety line. If the mount gives out the fixture might be able to swing out of the way.
