Whether you have one bicycle or five, you need a safe way to store and transportyour bikes. Keeping your bike stored out of harm’s way can prevent unnecessary wear and tear on it. At the same time, you’ll be more likely to take your bike outand plan new far-flung adventures if you have a simple way to transport it from your home to the riding spot you’ve been wanting to explore.There’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to bike storage and transport, which is why bikester.co.uk carries a huge variety of bags, carriers, mounts, covers, and more. No matter how many bikes you have, we have bike storage and transport options to suit you.
Bike Storage Mounts
You don’t have to take up valuable floor space by parking your bike in the middle of your garage or living room. Bike wall and ceiling mounts make it easy to hang your bike, freeing up space for everything else in your life and keeping your bike safely out of the way.Bicycle wall mounts come in a variety of shapes and styles to fit every wall andevery bike. Depending on the design of the mount, you can hang your bike horizontally by the top tube or vertically by the front wheel. Some mounts stick outfrom the wall to leave space for flat handlebars, while others are more compact for narrow drop bars. There are even wall mounts that have space for two bikes on a single rack.Ceiling mounts and telescopic supports offer another solution if you’re low on wallspace. Ceiling mounts typically take the form of a hook that hangs down from theceiling and that you can mount your front wheel onto. Telescopic mounts are free-standing poles capable of holding two bikes – perfect if you have an empty corner to fill with bikes.
Bike Boxes and Transport Bags
If you’re getting ready to take your bike on a trip or need to check it as baggage on a plane, a sturdy bike box or transport bag is very useful. These bags are designed to fit an entire bike and wheelset, although you may need to disassemble the bikeslightly by taking off the wheels or removing the handlebars.When choosing a bike transport bag, there are a few things to think about. You’ll need to ensure that whatever bag you choose is large enough to hold your bike frame, ideally without requiring too much disassembly. Soft-sided bags are lightweight and easier to squeeze a bike into with less disassembly, but they don’t offer the same protection against impacts as hard-shell bike bags. Wheels can make it much easier to move your bike bag around, but they are also prone to breaking with heavy use.
Roof Racks and Car Carriers
Being able to mount your bike on the outside of your car opens up a world of possibilities for new places you can explore with your bike. Choosing between a roof rack or a car carrier comes down to how many bikes you have and what type of car you have. Bike roof racks are typically designed to carryonly one bike, but you can add as many racks to your roof as will fit. Carriers, on the other hand, are usually able to fit two to three bikes. Roof racks can be easy to use if your car is short enough that you can easily reach the roof, but otherwise rear carriers are more convenient to access. Keep in mind, though, that rearcarriers may prevent you from accessing your car’s boot.
