Best Bike Wall Mounts [Top 8 for Indoor Home Storage]

Picture the scene. You’ve found the brand new bike you want, and you’ve finally saved up enough to buy it. You can’t wait to get on the saddle and ride around the city, spice up your commute on two wheels, go on weekend adventures or try out some gnarly mountain bike trails, but there’s one thing standing in your way: storage.

If you live in a city,  chances are you have a small apartment with limited storage space, and certainly not enough for a bicycle. There might be a communal bike shed, but the waiting list is probably years long (trust me, I’m still waiting for a spot in my block’s bike shed and it’s been FOREVER), and what do you do in the meantime?

Equally, even if you live in the suburbs or countryside and have access to an outbuilding to store your bike, you might not have enough space in your garage, or worry about knocking into your bicycle as it balances on its stand in your shed.

The good news is that you don’t have to let limited storage space get in the way of buying your flash new bike. If you’ve got a few metres of clear space on a sturdy wall in your home then you’ve got room to store your bike on a wall mount.

On this page, we’ll discuss the options for bike storage at home and go into the reasons why a wall mount might or might not be the best option for you, your space and your bike. Then we’ll go through 8 of the best wall mounted bike racks on the market right now, to make choosing the solution for you as easy as possible.

How to Store a Bike at Home

There are lots of different options out there for storing bikes at home, and which one is right for you depends on where you want to store your bike, how much space you have, and how you want to access your bike.

Wall mounts are, of course, one option, and these can be vertical or horizontal and come in different styles depending on your needs.

You can also get hoists for your bike, which is perfect if you want to store it in a roof space, but not so great if you use your bike regularly as it can be quite involved to get the bike up and down.

A pole-type floor-to-ceiling rack can be a good removable option for indoor bike storage, and often hold more than one bike at a time.

Another option is a free-standing rack, which is great for those who don’t have a sturdy and reliable wall or ceiling for a fixed rack, or who might need to move their bike storage around the home.

Whatever you’re using, it’s also a good idea to incorporate a wall or ground anchor to lock your bike securely in place and keep it safe from thieves.

Are Wall Mounts Bad for Bikes?

No, wall mounts are not bad for bikes. Some worry that because, in many wall mount styles, the bike is hanging on its wheels, it is bad for the bike, but the mount will not damage the bicycle or its tyres.

Remember that bikes are designed to withstand weight and the force of the road, but to provide extra care for your bike ensure you’re using vinyl hooks to prevent scratches and hanging the bike with two points of contact to spread the weight. This might mean having one wheel resting on the floor, or having the bike frame sit on two hooks on the wall so that the bicycle is securely held.

Of course, you should remember to fix your wall mount to a sturdy wall and ensure it is properly installed for safety. You should also consider the weight of your bike and how easy you will find it to put on and take off the bike whenever you need to ride it — for example, you might not want to lift a heavy bike over your head every morning and evening, so you should make sure your bike is stored at an accessible level.

Ultimately, wall mounts are not bad for bikes, and are an excellent option for indoor bike storage when you don’t have a lot of space to play with.

What is the Best Way to Hang a Bicycle on a Wall?

There are many options for hanging a bicycle on a wall, from wall sticks to wheel mounts, folding bike hooks to multi-bike storage, and the best way is whichever suits your needs and available space.

You might choose wall sticks for a simple, minimalist look, or folding bike hooks when you need the mount to fold flat when not in use. If you have more than one bike, a rack with the option to store multiple bikes at once could be ideal, and if you need to make sure your bike is locked in place (for example, if you’re worried about your expensive e-bike getting stolen), there are options for lockable wall mounts too.

There are also plenty of options for varying budgets, with some wall mount options costing less than £10. If you’ve got cash to splash, you can get stylish and secure wall mounts for over £100 too, but you don’t have to break the bank to get a decent wall mount that both looks good and does the job.

Next, we’ll show you 8 of the best options for hanging a bicycle on a wall, with options suitable for all budgets, space allowances and levels of accessibility required.
