The Best Bike Wall Mounts for Style and/or Practicality
If you’re tired of rummaging around in your house or garage looking to make room to store your bicycle, a bike wall mount might offer you the perfect solution.
Especially if for those with limited space, a wall bike rack is not only a convenient alternative to store your bicycle but, in many cases, can also become part of the decoration of your property.
Here are five highly recommended wall mounts of all different shapes, sizes, for all different purposes and prices:
Available in black, white or as a wooden design, this wall-mounted bike rack from Bike Stix, made of oak wood and leather, has been hand-crafted with oak wood and genuine leather to make a functional yet also aesthetically pleasing model.
You can buy this bike wall stand in one of three sizes, depending on whether you’re buying it to support a road bike, mountain bike or many more, and can support bicycles weighing as much as 25kg.
Plus, it’s easy to install; just drill some holes, insert some dowels (the wall mount is delivered with nylon dowels) and screw in. It could hardly be simpler.
If you’re looking for a cheaper solution, though, then look no further than this storage rack from Raleigh, which should provide you with great value for money.
This black metal bike wall hanger provides great support for your bicycle thanks to its dual hook design, and is PVC-coated for paintwork protection.
There’s certainly nothing overly fancy or eye-catching about it; rather, it just does it what it says on the tin: it holds your bike up while mounted on the wall. And from a brand as established and reliable as Raleigh, you would be hard-pressed to find better options for such a small price.
Never mind having to mount your bike on the wall due to a lack of space around the house; this wall mount will barely take up any space itself, either.
This paint and tyre-preserving bike wall hanger can be folded away when it is not being used, and measures at about 36cm, supporting bicycles weighing no more than 25kg.
They also come in packs of two, so you have the option to mount a pair of bikes on the wall if you wish. What’s more, thanks to their foldable function, you will hardly notice them when they are not in use.
If you’re prepared to pay that little bit extra to get a little bit extra in return, then how about this bicycle wall mount from Mottez, which can hold as many as five bikes vertically at the same time?
Not only can it accommodate for as many bikes as this, but a shelf can also be added across the top of it for additional storage. And, thanks its plastic-covered bike hooks for wall mounting, the bicycles it holds will be thoroughly protected for any sorts of scratches.
Ideal as a bike rack for garage walls, this five-bike holder is great for looking after your bicycle and your childrens’, for example, or even if you’re just an avid bike collector yourself.
The most expensive but perhaps the best bike wall mount on the list, this model from biketRAP comes as an all-in-one rack complete with an antitheft lock for good measure.
It can hold two bikes – sometimes three depending on the sizes and models – and is compatible with any bicycle shape, while its foam covering will prevent your bike from sustaining scratches.
Meanwhile, the lock comes with high security keys and an antitheft screws kit, so whether it’s kept in your garage, house or elsewhere, your bikes will not only be fitted on the wall, they’ll be safely locked up, too.
