Do you need a place to store your bikes but you’re not allowed to screw into the walls or don’t want to? Well, this is the Bike Storage Rack you need! Instead of having to screw the rack into the walls and ceiling to be secure, this bike rack uses a pressure mount that spans from the floor to the ceiling.
The pressure mount is a very clever way to make a sturdy bike rack that is simple, secure, AND won’t damage your wall. StoreYourBoard does have a few other free standing bike racks that accomplish a similar goal, but this rack provides a more secure hold that won't move if you bump into it.
This is a great bike rack for apartments or college dorm rooms where you need to make the best use of your small space but your landlord is not too happy to see a bunch of holes in the walls. Another nice feature is that it is very easy to install.
This bike rack is very adjustable. The arms that hold your bikes are able to be positioned anywhere along the vertical pole. This feature allows you to space your bikes properly for your room height and bike sizes. Each arm has 2 cradles that support your bike along its frame. The angle of the arm is adjustable, so it can be adjusted to fit a variety of bike frames (mountain, bmx, fixed gear, beach cruiser, etc). The whole height of the rack can adjust from 5 ft 11 inches to 9 ft 6 inches. The typical residential ceiling height is 8 foot, so this rack gives you plenty of options for shorter or taller spaces.
How it works: Essentially, you wedge the rack into place between your ceiling and floor. To do this, you adjust the rack height to be just a little longer than the height of your ceiling. This causes the rack to be pinned in place and prevents the rack from falling over. As mentioned above, this makes installation a breeze and doesn’t require any hardware or screwing into your walls or ceiling.
I needed a rack for my two bikes so that I could free up some floor space in my small city apartment. I really wanted the oak wood rack, but found that it wouldn't fit in the low overhang (6' 11") where I wanted to store the bikes. This metal rack fits the space and works really well, but the appearance of the design gives my apartment a bit more of a garage/storage-area look than I would like. I got the silver with black brackets (rather than red as shown) and I have two light, minimalistic, steel frame fixed gear bikes.
The pads are nice and big and don't seem to mar the paint or floor surface, and the hardware feels like high quality, precision stuff. Setup is easy, and took about 20 minutes for me to get the whole thing dialed in. I recommend it for a garage or if the wood rack just wont fit. It's worth the money.
this is my second apt bike rack that I purchased, due to the simplicity of it, how easy and fast it was to install and sturdy too.
The top fastener has a constant tendency to slip and slide down on the polished super smooth surface...no matter how tight I made the clamping device...I guess due to the upper pole section not being a true round pole either doesn't help, the device finds a way to slip and slide towards the flat of the pole, thus having the top bike sink....I had tried a rubber pad under the clamp...no better results...the only true fix is to drill a 1/4 " hole to the height I want to maintain the bike and place a bolt and nut thru the pole to prevent sinking...OTHERWISE ITS FANTASTIC FOR THE PRICE! IM GOING TO PURCHASE ANOTHER ONE!
Pretty easy to install however can't hang one of my bikes on it. Brackets don't fit on Dutch/metro style, cruising bikes.
Easy stays put when you remove bike... conserves space and time... love it!!
I live in DC in a 500 sf condo. I need every inch of space possible; being a cyclist, with no place to store my nice bikes, is a definite problem. This bike pole storage thing is the perfect solution. It's surprisingly sturdy. It didn't come with directions, but was so easy to put together I didn't need them! I have two bikes on my rack currently; a steel-framed Jamis cyclocross (about 20 pounds) and a Trek road bike (about 12 pounds). The Jamis bike is a steel framed bike (very heavy!). Both bikes are somewhat small (44 cm), but the pole could easily fit two large bicycles. It took me a few tries to get the adjustments right, and I would definitely recommend putting your "every day" bike on the lower arm. However, this is great because it requires no drilling, is easy to set up, and takes up virtually no space! I was very happy to have my bedroom back once my bikes were safely secured on this rack.
