Bike Racks For Garage Floor

For years the bike rack was just an after thought in bike rack planning. But with growing concerns over security and theft of bicycles in Canada, bike racks have developed into a priority safety equipment. There are some easy solutions to building your own bike rack for garage floor area.

One of the simplest ways to assemble a bike rack is to take an ordinary shipping pallet or like slotted item of wood from a home store and make a rack out of it. By carefully finishing and painting the wooden rack you could create very nice looking bike racks for garage floor area. But when choosing which shipping pallets to use, you want to choose ones that are lightweight, long lasting and strong. The pros of shipping pallets are that they are light, and not easily damaged, and they hold up well to weight bearing.

Some of the best bike holders for floor area are made from slanted metal grids that hold either one bike, or up to two bikes. This kind of grid has two horizontal arms that run the full length of a floor space, holding the bikes horizontally with no gaps. You can get very creative with this type of free standing rack. You can build an X shaped arm, or make the arm 90 degrees perpendicular to the bike rack itself so you have a free standing rack on a wall that has a good amount of wall space for bike storage.

If you only have two to three bikes to mount on the bike rack, the best choice is a flat surface, like a concrete slab. The six bikes on a six-bike rack provides twice the spacing that a flat bike rack provides. This extra space increases your bike rack’s versatility. You can easily move it around to create proper bike spacing for your specific needs.

The biggest negative of a sloped surface bike rack is the lack of storage space. There’s not enough room to store all of your equipment. Some people who own two or more bikes will choose to place them side by side on a single bike rack so they have a little more room to spread out. Most bike wall racks have limited shelf and storage space and some even have none at all. That means you either have to leave your stuff outside to open the rack up, or you have to leave some of your stuff inside to create more space.

Bike floor racks for concrete slabs or a rolled steel rack are your best options for bike storage options. They allow for optimal bike placement with plenty of room left over for other storage options, and most of them have security features to keep your bike safe. They also provide ample spacing so you can easily move your bike around the garage while maximizing the amount of storage space you have available.

If you have a lot of bikes, you may want to invest in ceiling bike racks. These types of floor bike racks are perfect for garages with ceilings that are too low to put a standard bike rack on. They’re also great for using as a temporary storage option during storms or as a way to keep bikes off the floor during remodeling projects. As long as your ceiling height isn’t too low, you should be able to fit most ceiling bike racks on your ceiling.

There are plenty of options for bike racks for your garage. If you’re looking for the best possible storage solution for your bikes and you have a small garage, you may want to consider a ceiling rack. If you have a larger garage and you want to maximize the amount of space you have available for storage, you might consider a portable floor rack. Whatever you decide, it’s important to make sure you’ve made the right decision when it comes to choosing a storage solution for your bikes.
