What Are Bicycle Wall Mounts?

These huts are designed to hold your bicycle, and you can hang it on them like any other bike rack. The best bike wall mounts are easy to install and will allow you to display your bikes in style.

Bicycle carrier, a device attached to a vehicle (e.g., to a car or bus) to which bicycles can be mounted for transport. Bicycle parking rack, a stationary fixture to which a bicycle can be securely attached (typically using a bicycle lock) to prevent theft.

Get a wall-mount bike rack online or at your local hardware store. Choose a vertical or horizontal wall mount depending on how you want your bike to be stored. A vertical bike rack is a good option if you're trying to conserve wall space. Choose a horizontal bike rack if you want your bike to hang flat against the wall.[1] You can even build one if you want.

Measure the bike with a tape measurer. Measure the length of the bike if you're using a vertical bike rack, or the height of the bike if you're using a horizontal bike rack.

Hold the bike rack on the wall where you want the bike to hang. Don't put the rack up too high or the bike might touch the ceiling when it's hung up. Once you have the rack in position, mark where all of the screw holes on the rack line up with the wall. Most bike racks have two screw holes.[2]
  • If you’re using a horizontal rack, make sure the distance between the floor and the bike rack is greater than the height of the bike.
  • If you’re using a vertical rack, make sure the distance between the floor and the bike rack is greater than the length of the bike.

Use a drill to drill into the wall at the points you marked.
Make sure the holes you drill are deep enough that the whole length of the screws will fit in them. Use a drill bit that is slightly smaller than the screws that came with the bike rack. [3]
  • You can find power drills online here.
  • For example, if the bike rack came with 6mm screws, use a 5mm drill bit.

Push a wall plug into each hole you drilled. The wall plugs will give the screws you’re going to use to mount the bike rack something to grip onto. Use wall plugs that are the same size as the screws that came with the bike rack. You can find wall plugs at your local hardware store.[4]

Line the rack up over the holes and screw it into place. Use a screwdriver to screw the screws that came with the bike rack into the wall plugs. Continue turning the screwdriver until the screws won't turn anymore. [5]

Hang the bike on the bike rack. If you’re using a vertical bike rack, hang the bike by the front tire. If you’re using a horizontal bike rack, place the top tube of your bike frame on the rack.

Get a bike hook that can hold the weight of the bike. The packaging on the hook should say the maximum load capacity. Don't use a hook that's not meant to hold the weight of the bike or it could pull out of the wall.
  • You can find bike hooks at your local hardware store or online here.
  • Use a bathroom scale to figure out the weight of the bike if you're unsure. Weigh just yourself on the scale, and then weigh yourself on the scale while holding the bike. Subtract your weight from the weight of you plus the bike - the number you're left with is how much your bike weighs.

Use a stud finder to locate a stud in the wall. You can get a stud finder at your local hardware store. Place the stud finder on the wall and slowly move it across the wall until it indicates that a stud has been found. Usually stud finders light up or make a beeping sound when they’re over a stud. Read the instructions that came with your stud finder for specific directions on using it.
