Three easy tips for storing your bicycle at home
It can get difficult to find a proper place to keep your bicycle within the walls of your home. Just have a look at the tips below to make it easier.
A journey from the road to hanging mid-air
A bicycle is not only practical but is also good-looking. At least that’s what every bike-owner thinks! So why not treat it like the piece of art it is? Using hooks, keep the bicycle out of the way, easy to reach and suspended in mid-air for everyone to admire.
Anytime and in any weather
If you use the bicycle frequently, a space that’s easy to reach and clean (in case of bad weather) is required. Place a few protective mats and hide your bicycle behind a length of fabric in a convenient spot. It stays close at hand and stylishly hidden from sight.
Transform your cabinets into a bicycle stand
The cabinets should be strong enough to bear the bicycle’s weight. But, it is not all up to them. We have secured the bicycle to the wall by a bracket with a separate, vertical knob (see the detail image for a clearer understanding). Placing a few clear sheets of drawer mats over the cabinet tops will protect the surfaces from dirt and scratches while being discreet.
