Steadyrack’s vertical bike racks have revolutionised the bicycle storage industry by allowing riders across the world to effortlessly secure their bikes virtually on any wall and in almost any space.
Whether you’re looking for a single vertical bike rack to safely store your road bike in your apartment, multiple bike racks for shed or garage bike storage, or more racks than you can count on two hands for commercial bike parking, at Steadyrack we’ve got a compact vertical bike rack solution just for you!
Here's something that might surprise you when considering a vertical bike rack mounting solution. Vertically mounting your bike might be better for it. The best way to store bikes with front suspension forks, such as mountain bikes, is vertically. Most suspension forks contain fluid, which is kept inside the forks chamber by seals. According to our good buddies at Fox the best way to mount your bike is vertically! This will allow the fluid inside the fork to gravitate towards the seals which keeps them lubricated and prolong their use.
Mounting your bike vertically in a Steadyrack is the easiest way to look after your bike and make sure your front forks seals are kept supple and lubricated, prevent leaks and last longer. Storing your bike in our upright racks can also alert you to any problems you may have with your seals. For example, if there is a lot of fluid leaking from your suspension forks, it might be time to get to you bike repaired.

Why a Steadyrack Bike Mount for Your Wall?
With Steadyrack’s wall mount bike storage racks, you’ll be able to free up precious space in your home or garage. Bicycles are large items when they’re horizontal, making them difficult to store. Storing your bike with a wall mount can help solve this problem. Getting your bike off the floor not only protects your bike by giving it a safe, dedicated space to be stored by its wheels (instead of its rims or spokes), but Steadyrack’s wall mount bicycle racks also free up your floor space for lots of other activities - just imagine what you could do in a garage or shed which had extra floor space to utilise for the other activities you enjoy.
The trouble with conventional bike wall mounts is that once installed, your bike still protrudes from the wall, not to mention the potential damage that can occur if the bike is bumped. With conventional bike rack systems for the wall, you must physically pick up and lift your bike into the wall mount. This is a cumbersome activity and potentially dangerous if someone doesn’t have the amount of strength required to lift the bike up. With Steadyrack’s design, the process is safer - there’s no lifting required as you can manoeuvre the bike onto the back tyre and then simply push the bike into the wall rack.
Typical wall hanging bicycle racks are static; once the bike is in the rack it can’t move. Steadyrack’s mounted bike rack’s pivot 160-degrees, which means you can push your bike as close to the wall as your handlebars and pedals allow.
This also means you can fit more bikes into the same space whilst maintaining easy access and ensuring the safety of yourself and the surrounding bikes on the wall.
Almost any type of bike will fit in a Steadyrack. You’re sure to find one that will fit perfectly, with detailed information on how to choose the best rack for your bike. If you’ll be swapping the type of bike that is stored in a Steadyrack, opted for our Fat Rack or Mountain Bike Rack (MTB), as the wider arms will accommodate both large and small bikes, without compromising the space-saving and safety features.
Yes – all five of our racks pivot up to 160 degrees, to the left and right, making it easy to access your bike when you go for a ride.
With a Steadyrack, there is no need to lift or juggle your bikes. Just balance your bike on the back wheel, push it in and allow the rack to do the lifting. An easy motion suitable for people of all ages and strengths.
Steadyrack’s revolutionary design allows you to store your bike upright, off the floor and saves more of your valuable floor space. When the bike rack is empty, the arms simply fold away.
Yes, you can lock your bikes into our racks with a D-Lock or Chain lock. This is sufficient to prevent opportunist theft and adequate if your bikes are stored in a private carpark. If your bikes are in a location fully accessible to the public, we recommend installing our Lock Bracket or a steel rail to the wall underneath the rack to attach a locking device to. As with everything, take caution when storing your bike in a public place, as professional thieves can generally get around any locking system.
