It’s almost a new year and while the holidays are still upon us it is about time you got around to giving your bicycle a home within your house. Remember, your house isn’t a home until your bike has a safe and comfortable place to spend the night. Be inspired by these 10 different styles of rack – get the tools out and make your own or be a bit lazy and use your plastic to buy one, your bicycle deserves it!
Wooden Wall Mounted Rack and Shelf by WeAreChrome
The top tube of your bike nestles safely in this sleek birch rack, while the shelf gives you a bit of extra space for your lights or helmet. A slight downward slant to the slit ensures your bike sits securely in the rack. Also pictured above.
Maxrax by Bikerax
If, like me, your household has lots of bikes then it is handy to have space for storing them all. This rack is available in different sizes which can hold from one up to five bikes. It is designed and made in Australia from sustainable timber and it packs down flat, making it easy to transport when you move house.
Rabbit Floor Rack by HechoSimple
This simple rack comes in four colours and holds your bike securely by hugging the axle of the rear hub inside the dropout.
Bike and D-lock Rack by TWIGwdwrk
This wall-mounted rack has a special slot just for your d-lock and it is finished in leather and a walnut veneer, so it will look good near your whisky collection. It only ships to the United States and Spain.
Seat Bicycle Rack by IndustrialFarmHouse
This rack is great for mixtes or step-throughs, which don’t have a straight top tube, as it suspends your bicycle using the seat. It is made from mahogany and also doubles as a shelf. This specific rack only ships to the United States.
Portable Floor Rack by BikeWoodHome
Your tyre slots securely into this discreet portable rack. It is a simple but elegant design, and could be fixed to the floor for long-term use in garages or on patios.
Bicycle Taxidermy Rack by HeydayFinds
If you have a spare set of old drop bars around then this is the perfect way to get some use out of them. The particular set pictured only ships to the United States, but it would be much more fun to make your own using your favourite bar tape, just make sure the handlebars protrude far enough from the wall that your pedals won’t mark it.
Vertical Bamboo Rack by ReBicyclist
This minimalist rack is carved from a single piece of bamboo and holds your bike vertically, so you could easily hang multiple bikes on a single wall. Unfortunately you can’t get bamboo with a thick enough diameter to accommodate deep V’s. I like how without a bike on this rack it is very unobtrusive and won’t look like a bike rack at all.
Chevron Bicycle Hanger made from reclaimed wood by ChristopherOriginal
I like that this rack is a simple geometric shape, allowing the bicycle’s form to be showcased – it basically turns your bike into an art gallery display. It is made from reclaimed wood so each one is different, and it can be personalised with letters and numbers. These only ship to the United States.
Handlebar Bicycle Rack by BikeWoodHome
This clever rack works by holding your handlebar in place, a unique but simple idea that I’ve never seen before. Very cool.
