Bikes are excellent for getting around in the city. They’re practical and fun and they take up relatively little space compared to other vehicles. They do, however, need to be properly stored, usually inside the house. A wall-mounted bike rack solves that problem without taking up valuable floor space. There are lots of indoor bike rack types and designs to choose from and we selected a few of them, the one that we find most interesting.
Vertical bike racks are among the most space-efficient and this one is a perfect example to show this feature. It’s called simply Rack and it’s designed to be used inside a house or apartment. It’s made of solid hardwood and powder-coated steel and it has a self-leveling mounting system that allows it to be placed on a variety of surfaces. You can use it for most types of bicycles.
In tight spaces, chances are the only free space you can find on a wall is a horizontal slot. No worries because you can still store your bike there with ease. In fact, there’s a bike rack designed specifically for that. We’re talking about the Zero Gravity Rack. It takes your bike off the floor and keeps it on the wall without wasting a lot of space there either. It’s perfect for small apartments.

It really makes the bike shine and it doubles as a practical rack for jackets, bike helmets and other accessories too. All you need for a great bike trip can be stored here.
A bike rack doesn’t need to be very complex or to stand out if all you need is for it to safely keep your bike off the floor to free up space.

The rack is made of metal coated with polyurethane and it can hold up to 30 kg which is a lot more than a bike usually weighs.

The cool and stylish thing about the Slit Bike Rack is that it looks beautiful when you take off the bike. In fact, it even has a somewhat mysterious look. The rack is created by Mikili Design and looks like a square wall fixture. It has a small door/shelf that opens at a 90 degree angle ad there’s a slit in it that holds the bike in place, leaving enough space around it for a vase, a small pot or your usual bike gear.
