The best bike   racks: buying guide

You already know a bike rack can get your bike out of the way and   keep it safe.  It also protects your   valuable property from damage and clears up space in your home.  However, which of the list is best for your   situation?  We’ll get into that   below.  We will give you tips on how to   choose the best one for you.

Type of rack

There are two types of bike racks: vertical and   horizontal.

  • Horizontal bike racks raise your bike.  They use folded hooks to secure bikes and   are padded with a soft material to avoid scratching the bikes.  They are great options if your ride is   quite heavy and difficult to lift for a vertical wall mount.

  • Vertical bike racks, on the other hand, use hinge plates to secure   bikes to their wheels.  There are those   who carry bicycles at an angle from the walls, while others position the   bicycles parallel to the walls.  The   best for you depends on the weight of your bike.  A heavy bike is difficult to lift, so it is   better to mount it on a right-angled vertical rack.

Available space in   your home

Bicycle racks are specially designed to minimize disruption in   your home and prevent you from using too much valuable space for storing   bicycles.  Regardless of how compact   your chosen bike rack is, you still need to consider the space the bike will   take up when it is wall mounted.  That said,   if your space is small or limited, you need to figure out the dimensions of   your bike and determine if it is best if you hang it on a specific wall.  Since most of the top of the wall is   wasting space, the higher you hang your ride, the less intrusive the wall   will be.
