There are so many good things about getting on a bike. You get a workout, make a good choice for the environment and save money.
The only bummer?
Coming home to your apartment or house and finding you really don’t have the room to store your bike—yet you definitely don’t want to leave it outside.
Home Bicycle Storage
Here’s the good news: There are more in-home bike storage solutions out there than ever. Looking for stylish? Check. How about cheap? Check. What about for a step-through frame? Check.
Let’s take a look at some of the options, starting with cheap.
This 3-in-1 bike hanger can be bought at Home Deport for less than $5. You mount it on the ceiling of your apartment or garage and can use it to store your bike vertically or horizontally.
There are, of course, times when your lease prevents you from screwing anything into the wall or ceiling, yet you still want to save space. If that’s you, check out this freestanding bike stand, available on Amazon for $49.99.
Looking for something that’s big on style? This beautiful bike rack doubles as wall art—and will set you back more than $300.
What about if you have a step-through frame? Pulley bike lifts like this one from Amazon offer a convenient solution—and are downright fun to use.
