Know Your Space
What size and what shape is the space that you want to store your bikes in? Whether it’s on the floor, on the wall or on the ceiling, there’s options for that. We have a long narrow section of floor space in our garage that I knew would be great for parking bikes. But there’s only access to it from the front not the sides so I knew I needed to get a rack where all the bikes faced the same way.
Know Which Rack Will Fit Your Specific Bikes
Not all bike racks are created equal. The majority have no problem with adult mountain bikes but add in a balance bike, road bike or even a fat bike and sometimes it’s a NO GO. If you’re purchasing read the fine print and if you’re doing a custom DIY project measure carefully.
Know Your Usability
Because our family seems to break things easily and we needed something that could hold A LOT of bikes we ultimately decided to purchase. The options are limitless here but these are the ones that stood out to me:
This Compact Rack was a contender because it has the helmet hooks and seemed to be great for utilizing space. Holds 6 bikes and not a bad price point at $59 (with free shipping).
