Tiered Bike Racks

I know there are a few people around here that have tiered bike racks for storage/display. I'm considering a couple three bike models from Minoura:

Minoura | EBS-3 Bicycle Display Stand (nacycles.com)

Amazon.com : Minoura 971-3 Tier 3-Bike Display Stand, Grey : Sports & Outdoors

Does anyone have experience with these two or anything of the sort?

No experience but if you want to stay C+V then you need the Vitansel rack. This is kind of a grail rack for me and I’ve had a couple of near misses at getting one over the years.

That Vitansel is almost high enough to part two under the back side!

I like it! Just don't know where I would put that as it takes up a lot of space. Parts or tool drawers on both sides? Room to store roof racks, portable bike stand...... frame sets...wheels...

I saw one of these in a Portland shop and it made a nice display if a little busy but can not imaging dealing with this for user storage. If up against a wall the upper bikes would be a pain to get out and then back in with the fork moving around on it own.

Yeah, but all that hassle melts away every time you see your bikes rising majestically towards the heavens.
