Indoor bike rack
« on: 09, October, 2017, 10:44:52 PM »
Does anyone have an indoor bike rack. I need a rack to hold four to six bikes. I'm thinking of the type, where the bikes hang, like they do on those uplift trucks. Is this in any way bad for the bikes/fluid in bikes to be stored like this. If it's OK to store bikes like this where would I get one of these and how much so they cost? This is to be located in my house. I'm moved from a big rented house in Palmerstown, to my own house in Leixlip which is much smaller, currently living with one biker, possibly could be living with two.

Hi Rachael, shouldn't be an issue hanging biker vertically. If brakes are spongy afterwards they'll be back to normal after a few brake pumps. Indicates that's there's air in the system. Lots of solutions out there but as it's your own house so you can drill the wall I'd recommend the wall mounted wheel support type.

Just make sure you drill in to a wall stud or else a supporting (brick) wall.

2nd that recommendation, although monster tyres above 2.4 or so might struggle to fit on really wide rims.

I use this one to hold the bikes.


No need to drill, and bikes stay in a horizontal position.


They can hold up to 4 bikes, if you have access from both sides.
