Bike storage in a garage

This is an awkward subject as bikes can take up so much space, especially when they are stored on the wall. So some questions first:

How many bikes are used? Regularly?

Who rides them? Children dont want them up high on walls

How much wall or floor space can be used?

Will there be a car in the garage?

At Garageflex we have 5 ways of storing bikes in the garage and the photographs will show the options. Basically if space is not an issue then they can be placed horizontally on the wall or vertically on the wall. Then there are diferent types of Bike holder.

If a car is not going to be kept in the garage then a Vertical rack is a good option. It takes a lot less wall space but does eat into the garage. Racks take 2 bikes and like on all units, a hook can be put alongside for helmets.

And the walls do not have to have a panel or slatwall; there are options to fasten the rack directly to the wall. The best rack we have is shown here:

Another option is to “park” them on the floor in a bay that comes in sizes from 1 bike to 5 bikes. This obviously takes up space but you can tell the amount of space needed and available.  See the photograph below.Finally bikes can be suspended from the ceiling if height . Obviously it is no good hanging the bike in such a way as the car, or even worse, your head hits it!

Good garaging
