USING STORAGE HOOKS TO SIMPLIFY YOUR STORAGE NEEDS
For many people, their relationship with their bikes is one that fluctuates between love and excitement when they’re riding it in the great outdoors, and frustration when it comes time to store it when the weather makes it impossible to go riding. Simply leaning it on a wall is a very bad thing to do because it increases the likelihood of someone colliding with it and damaging essential components or even suffering severe injury.
One way to simplify your storage issues and bring a whole lot of convenience into your life is to simply purchase a bike wall hanger that will allow you to place your bicycle into hooks that have been attached to a wall. Storage hooks are designed to hold the ride close to the wall firmly, such that they will not fall even in the event of someone bumping into them.
CONSIDERATIONS IN CHOOSING A GARAGE BIKE RACK
One advantage of using a wall bike rack is that it is a simple and relatively inexpensive storage option. If you have more than one, then your savings will go even higher. Another thing is that it is easy to move the hook to another part of the house if you need to switch things up, for whatever reason.
One thing you’ll have to keep in mind though, is that a bike hanger can sometimes make it a bit cumbersome to access your ride, thus making it unsuitable if you use it often or if you want your kids to be able to take theirs off by themselves. You can mitigate this by buying one that’s suitable for your peculiar needs.
Positioning your Bike Wall Mount
In spite of their resilience, it’s always a good idea to position your ride in such a way that the risk of unwanted contact is reduced to the barest minimum or completely eliminated. One simple way to do this is to raise the hooks as high up on the wall as you can. This will mean that unless you begin to shoot hoops in your living room or wherever else you’ve decided to hang your rides, you won’t have to worry about an accident.
In addition to reducing the risk of accidents, positioning is also very important because if implemented properly, it can turn your bicycle from a weird contraption on your wall to a unique and interesting focal point of your apartment’s décor. For one thing, it’d be a great conversation starter when you have guests over.
Installing Your Bike Storage Rack
Installing a wall mount has become progressively simple over the years, and nowadays, all you’ll need is basic tools and a large helping of attention to detail, for you to get it right.
If you’re using a simple hook, you can just go ahead and screw it into the wall or ceiling, though you should try as much as possible to screw into a post in the wall or a rafter in the ceiling to get the most possible support for the cycle’s weight. More advanced racks will come along with detailed instructions so be sure to follow them to the letter to ensure that you’re doing things correctly.
