Bike Hooks

Postby bobgfish » Wed Nov 07, 2012 20:31 pm

Wanted to hang by front or rear wheel from a wall.

Any recommendations?

Thanks

Wickes, B&Q and Homebase do plastic coated hooks for under a tenner that'll let you hang a bike.

Or wait for the nifty (cheap) system from Aldi/Lidl

Any thing will do. Not seen anything near me for under about £20 which was way to much since I need at least six. Not in the UK so was hoping with my next bike parts order from UK or Germany to get something shipped.

I bought a pice of 2x4 and 6 £1 hooks from B&Q. Attach hooks to 2x4, attach 2x4 to wall. Less drilling, less fuss, way cheaper.

Bobgfish, did you get your hooks - are they installed yet. I need something too.

I really like this

But it becomes way too expensive, once shipping etc is added.

They do look nice. But not at that price. I'll be getting mine in a month or two form the link below.

If you have hyd brakes, make sure when the bike is hung that the master cylinders are higher than the calipers.

Hooks like those need to come out of the roof not the wall. Going to try the real bike hooks as they are not that badly priced...

Mine come out the wall with one of the wheels on the floor, (have 5 bikes hanging on the shed wall). Have no troubles at all with them, ;-)

These are great and cheap as chips. Highly recommended. Cope with road and MTB both 26 and 29ers
