Three ways to store your bike at home
Storing bicycles can be a challenge, especially within the walls of your home. Here are some tips to make it all roll smooth.
Hang it like the piece of art it is
Beyond being practical, a bike is beautiful (perhaps especially to its owner). Hooks let you suspend it in mid-air – out of the way, reachable and for everyone to admire.
Accessible at all times – and for all types of weather
Frequent use calls for a bike space that’s easy to reach, but also prepared for bad weather. With protective mats and a length of fabric, you can have it both close at hand and hide it away in style.
Place your bike on top of the cabinet
Make sure that the cabinet or shelf is strong enough to carry its load. Here the bike is secured to the wall by a bracket with a separate, vertical knob (see detail image). Clear sheets of drawer mat discreetly protect surfaces from dirt and scratches.
