It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Until it’s not because your bike is rusting outside all winter long and susceptible to theft. Or maybe your bicycle currently devours half the space in your small apartment and trips everyone in its path.
Either way, the bike storage struggle is real. And we have the solutions.
This holiday season, treat yourself, your significant other, and anyone else in your bike riding crew, to any of these gorgeous bike racks that’ll store your bike in the least obstructive and painful way possible:
1. IKEA KVARTAL Bike Rack
For some, the best bike storage solution is a cheap bike storage solution. At only $2.50 per KVARTAL (you’ll need two) plus the cost of screws, this DIY bicycle rack is the most budget-friendly option on this entire list. Which leaves you with tons of spare change to splurge on presents. Or donate to charity.
This bike storage solution is so small, you probably didn’t see it in the picture above. CLUG is a U-shaped hug for your bike that stores your ride upright or sideways.
