Hanging bike storage racks are a great if you need to be economical on space, have no external storage options, have particular space issues (e.g. lots of room height, but little floor area) or just like how the look, some of the hanging bike solutions we're going to discuss do make your already beautiful bike look super-cool.
So where to start? Well it really depends, there are some very simple hanging racks that you fit to a side-wall to keep your bike upright (vertical) and in place, at the other end of the scale there are some pretty complicated lift and pulley type of systems, that can be extremely space saving in the right circumstances.
To make things easier we've split the types of hanging bike storage that we're going to talk about in to one of two groups; wall or ceiling.
Wall storage solutions you generally fix the rack to a side-wall or floor and your bike slots in, vertically. (click here to jump straight to wall racks).
While with ceiling storage solutions you are generally hoisting your bike towards the ceiling and more out of the way. (click here to jump to ceiling racks).
Cycloc Solo - Elegant Wall Mount Bike Storage Rack
Seems to be made from fairly high quality materials
It's about what you'd expect to pay
It looks pretty cool, a good 'different' option
The cycloc solo is made in the UK and is an award winning bike storage solution, and it's easy to see why. Storing your bike in your house can look a little ugly if it doesn't fit in with the style of your house. But the cycloc solo is one of very few interior bike storage solutions that offers something a bit different in the way of just how it looks.
Beyond being another design option, the cycloc solo does actually perform it's function very well, you may just want to have a quick measure and make sure it's going to work well with your bike, particularly if you have any extra wide components such as handlebars.
Available in a range of colors, we think that if the more traditional looking racks wouldn't look great in your house, then the cycloc solo is an alternative worth considering.
TITAN TRACK Overhead Garage Storage Systems
Work as they should and feel solid
A bit of a bargain
Great versatile option, particularly if you have several bikes
The Titan Track storage system isn't just targeted at bike storage, it's a solution that's aimed at being versatile, so you can store garden equipment out of the way as well as your bikes.
We really love the simplicity of the Titan Track overhead system and the flexibility to have your bikes hanging vertically (with one system in place) or horizontally across your ceiling with two systems in place, and clipping both wheels in.
The unit doesn't lower or allow you to pulley your bike up, but the hooks do move and rotate to make getting your bike in place a little easier than you might first imagine.
