With soaring gas prices we wouldn't be surprised if the bike industry is experiencing a major boom. Because of this, we thought we'd offer up some bike storage (all wooden!) solutions so that you don't have to do what we do: just lay your bike against the wall in your entry way (boooring).
This one's called the Monet. The details:
• Custom molded laminate wood shelf
• Folds down to save space when not in use
• Convenient two point fixing (hardware included)
• Sturdy steel and wood construction finished in silver powdercoat
• Maximum load 50 lbs (22 Kgs)
• Dimensions 17.5" x 14.5" x 10.5" (28" collapsed)
Our favorite part? It's only $29.99! And it folds down! We live in a studio apartment, folding is essential. We also love that it has a little shelf. Multifunctional furniture is also essential. More information here.
This is the Conde, and what we like most is how tiny it is. Again, studio apartment. Space is limited. We also really like the peg. Details:
"The Conde Single-Bike wall mount nails into a stud in your wall to easily display and store your bike while not in use. The Conde wall mount will work for any road, triathlon, mountain,or even a kids bike, and comes with felt padding to protect your bike's finish. A velcro strap is used to better secure the bike to the wall mount. In addition the Conde wall mount has pegs to store helmets, shoes, or air out your training clothing!"
It's $44.95 and available here.
This one's the Conde 2. We like it because it reminds us of an easel (we love seeing easels displayed) and also because we would paint it a different color every week (exaggeration). Details:
"The Conde Wood 2-Bike storage rack is a simple, elegant solution to conveniently store two bikes while not in use. The Conde Wood 2-Bike rack can hold road, mountain, time-trail, as well as kid's bikes, and comes with felt padding to protect your bike's finish. Solid, hardwood Maple construction makes the Conde rack a stable and reliable stand for years of use."
It's $169.99 and available here.
