Bikes are excellent for getting around in the city. They’re practical and fun and they take up relatively little space compared to other vehicles. They do, however, need to be properly stored, usually inside the house. A wall-mounted bike rack solves that problem without taking up valuable floor space. There are lots of indoor bike rack types and designs to choose from and we selected a few of them, the one that we find most interesting.
Vertical bike racks are among the most space-efficient and this one is a perfect example to show this feature. It’s called simply Rack and it’s designed to be used inside a house or apartment. It’s made of solid hardwood and powder-coated steel and it has a self-leveling mounting system that allows it to be placed on a variety of surfaces. You can use it for most types of bicycles.
In tight spaces, chances are the only free space you can find on a wall is a horizontal slot. No worries because you can still store your bike there with ease. In fact, there’s a bike rack designed specifically for that. We’re talking about the Zero Gravity Rack. It takes your bike off the floor and keeps it on the wall without wasting a lot of space there either. It’s perfect for small apartments.
If you really love your bike (which you should) then you probably don’t want to hide it in a dark garage or to keep it in a corner. If that’s the case, we have a special suggestion just for you: get a Bike Shelf. It’s a piece of furniture that lets you turn your prized bike into a work of art. It really makes the bike shine and it doubles as a practical rack for jackets, bike helmets and other accessories too. All you need for a great bike trip can be stored here.
A bike rack doesn’t need to be very complex or to stand out if all you need is for it to safely keep your bike off the floor to free up space. The Pincher wall-mounted bike rack by Karl Mikael Ling is perfect in that sense. It’s very simple and very intuitive. It doesn’t take much space and it works with a lot of different types of bikes. The rack is made of metal coated with polyurethane and it can hold up to 30 kg which is a lot more than a bike usually weighs.
This is the Bikinibicis, a small and practical bike rack designed by Mas Dolor. With it you can turn your beautiful bike into a wall decoration, a part of your home. The rack is made of wood and doubles as a small shelf on which you can keep your bike helmet, gloves and other related accessories or which can hold a cute flower pot to soften the look of the bike.
