Garages bike racks are designed to offer the best bike storage solution for your garage or home, allow you to save space while keeping your equipment safe and secure.
Regardless of how big or small your family is, finding a space in the garage to hold your bikes can be quite tricky. There is already your car in there. You store your tools, lawn maintenance equipment, garbage cans, toys, old stuff you don’t want to get rid of, you name it, there.
Maintaining it all in an organized manner is often beyond impossible. And so is finding a space amongst all this stuff for your bicycles, while making sure that they are safe from any potential scratches and damage.
This is where garage bike racks become useful. With the right bike rack for garage you can save anything from 20 to 40% of a floor space and keep your equipment safely out of reach.
A bike rack is designed to hold your bike in a specific position either on one of your garage walls, a ceiling or hanging from what is known as a bike tree.
Your bikes are held by a special latch mechanism, making it practically impossible for a bike to fell off a rack while making it easy for you to easily and quickly access your equipment whenever you need it.
There are several things you need to consider when you shop for a bike rack for your garage.
1. The type of support you want to use.
2. Available space you have.
3. The number of bikes you have.
4. Your budget.
Answers to these questions will determine whether you buy a freestanding bike tree, a ceiling lift or a wall mounted bike rack.
Other things you will have to consider include the frame designs, tire size, and if you need security locking systems will all need to be looked at prior to the purchase of a new bicycle rack system.
The two most common garage bike storage systems include freestanding bike racks and wall mounted ones.
FREE STANDING BICYCLE RACKS
A freestanding bike rack requires very little wall space and usually can hold up to two bikes at a time. You don’t have to install it permanently in one place and can move it wherever it suits.
A freestanding bicycle tree holds your bikes on a long pole, usually stretching from floor to ceiling. You simply hang your bikes on special latches provided and can remove them easily and fast when needed.
If you want to keep your bike secure, I would recommend getting a U-lock or other security system for the bike tree.
WALL MOUNTED RACKS
Wall mounted bike racks are a permanent solution that requires from you to dedicate at least one wall in your garage to store your bicycles.
As the name suggests, a wall mounted rack is installed on a wall and holds your bicycles in a special locking system. More sophisticated models of these bike racks come with additional shelves for your bike gear and so on.
Even though wall mounted bike racks come fully assembled, the installation usually takes time and you have to be prepared to do some DIY work in order to get them mounted properly.
