Whether you own a 2-story family home or are just renting out a solo apartment, you have to keep it organized to stay on top of it and keep sane. However, there’s only one thing more difficult than setting out to accomplish an organizational task - finding the tool to help you do it right. Especially when it comes to large items like a bicycle.
While there is an endless collection of storage devices on the market, buying each one just isn’t realistic and highly discouraged. To help decide what indoor bike rack is right for your space, here’s a short list of guidelines to ensure you make the correct purchase.
When most people think bikes and the indoor bike racks that need to come with them, they think cost. Some might say that cost matters less if the quality is worth it: but why have to sacrifice to get both? Fortunately, there’s no need to. As certain new innovative products come out on the market, cost and quality are considered with equal importance. Whether its a Freestanding Bike Rack (PLB-4R) or Gravity Bike Rack (PLB-2R), companies like Racor cater to all price points.
While that certain organizational tool you really want might be worth a little number crunching, there are versions of indoor bike racks that won’t have to make you sacrifice. Both options are legitimate ones to consider.
The perfect organizational tool will always maximize the use of your space, awkward corner or otherwise. From garage to the living room, take advantage of all your available space and don’t settle for anything less. If you want to begin getting some of your space back, larger items like bicycles can be a surefire way to start. Before you go purchasing an indoor bike rack, first know what you’re working with. Know the dimensions of the area you have designated and choose accordingly. For those with tight quarters, look for something like Racor’s Folding Bike Rack (PSB-2L), a device which folds to the wall when not in use.
Don’t waste time going for the big and exciting indoor bike racks if your space does not permit it. Do some research and find the right one for you!
Design is an essential part of any household organization. A well-designed space not only pleases the eye, but adds value and appeal to your home or apartment. It is best to decide ahead of time what kind of indoor bike rack you are looking for and if you want a ground or suspended option. There are so many variations in bicycle storage that finding the perfect design should be easy. For the more traditional, a bike stand like the Floor Bike Stand (PBS-2R) would be ideal in creating a conventional feel. Whereas, something like the Bike Lift (PBH-1R), would look great in a modern space.
No matter your personal preference, be sure to spend time choosing an organizational design that is right for you and your family.
It takes more than a spontaneous decision to make a successful organizational attempt. Choose your indoor bike rack carefully!
