Why type of bike storage is right for you?

When choosing a storage system for your space, take the time to understand how much space you have to work with and what type of space it is. Is it floor space or wall space? Do you have room to hang bikes from a ceiling or rafter? Next, how many bikes do you need to store and how accessible would you like them to be?

Most options for bike storage will fall into one of the below categories:

Bike storage

The Hornit Clug is known for it's small, simple design.​

Wall mounts: These racks mount to existing wall studs in your space and often will hang bikes parallel to your wall. Bike attachment points for these racks include hanging by front or rear wheel, hanging by the bike's frame, or even just by the saddle or seatpost of the bike.

Vertical Floor Racks: These racks offer vertical bike storage and can usually accommodate more than one bike on a single rack. The can either be wall mounted, freestanding, or use an extender type support system. These racks offer easy bike access, keep the bikes off the floor, and also give a space a more bike-centric aesthetic.

Floor Display stands: If you have the floor space, these stands are a simple bike solution for keeping your two-wheeled rigs upright and accessible. These stands can either support the bike by its tires or by the crank spindle. These are the most versatile support system in the bunch as they can easily be moved around your space depending on your needs.

No matter what you choose to help organize your bikes, some key specifics about the bikes you're hoping to store will save you a lot of headaches. What type of bike is it? How heavy is it? Can you hang the bike by its frame? How wide are the tires? Do you have hollow spindle cranks? All of the racks and stands below attach to the bike at different points, so take the time and understand your needs before pulling the trigger.
