We love our bikes. But wouldn’t you love to use the real estate that your bike is taking up for something else? Here are some options to storing your bike(s) that keep them tidy and out of the way. We hope these creative options inspire you to better integrate bike storage into your space, whether it be in your garage or your living space.
Bikes can hang by the tires perpendicular to the wall or can hang by the frame. Some wall mounts even pivot to the side so you can tuck your bike close to the wall. Check out Steady Rack.
This system by DaHANGER mounts the bikes by the pedals. The bikes tilt away from the wall.
This system by MonkeyBars incorporates bike racks into their options for garage storage. (Note that this fits 4 bikes because they are staggered; 2 are hung by their back wheels which is harder to lift.)
No need to use a wall when you utilize tension poles. This pole, made by RAD Cycle Products can be adjusted to suit the height of your space.
These truly freestanding racks made by DeltaCycle are called “gravity stands.” They can accomodate 2 or 4 bikes.
Hang bikes from the ceiling and maximize your floor space. You can use simple hooks or pulley systems. This system is made by RAD Cycle Products
Ceiling hooks are another way to go. This family stores multiple bikes on the ceiling of their high garage using simple utility hooks.
Simple Floor racks like this one made by Swagman create a dedicated parking space so bikes don’t inadvertently end up in front of other things. Good as a last resort or for young children’s bikes so they can easily get them out themselves.
