The Bike Storage Rack by Monkey Bars securely stores 6 bikes in a compact space. The Bike Rack's ability to store 6 bikes is designed for long term storage, freeing up valuable floor space in your garage. For daily use, it is recommended to store up to 4 bikes, making it easier to get the bikes on and off the rack. The rack is constructed of industrial steel with a gray powder coat finish built to endure years of heavy use. The hooks snap and slide along the bar allowing you to choose where to place the bikes along the rack. The hooks also contain a plastic coating to prevent scratches on your bikes. The rack is 48" wide allowing you to drill the brackets into the wall studs. This rack is strong enough to hold up to 200 lbs.

1) Could hold 6 bikes if you alternate bike orientations (handle bars up, down, up).
2) Powder coating is of good quality.
3) Steel brackets and bar are solid.
1) Screws provided are not long enough and could rip out. They are only 2". They should be 3".
2) Hooks slide around when trying to place a bike. Annoying.
3) Hook pops into place on bar with a small 1/8" lip. This lets you take off the hooks easily, but I have no need to. I knocked one off trying to get the hook through my tire. Worries me a bit. They should have made the hook base a square/diamond hole, to slide completely around the bar. Then it wouldn't have potential to pop out and fall down.
1) Buy your own Lag Bolts, 3".
2) Don't mount too close to a side wall, because the handlebars of an end bike may not allow it. Allow for that space, about ~"12 needed.
3) Consider mounting the bar away from the back wall, by shimming small 2x4s behind each mounting bracket. Would help get hooks around the tires more easily.
4) Don't mount bar too high as the other guy said. 8ft max, or you'll be lifting using weaker muscle groups and potential injury. Or, as the dad, you'll become the DEDICATED bike valet. Crap...
5) Use zip ties or drill holes/bolts into bar as a method of keeping the hooks from sliding around.
6) Use zip ties to keep the hook lips from "popping" out of place and falling down. Extra security.
This is a good product and it does it's job. Get longer lag bolts. After it was all said and done, I actually kind of wish I just made my own out of wood. I could have probably used 2x4 for the bar, and just bought large bike/rake/ladder type of hooks to screw into it. Would have saved a lot of money and been pretty strong. If you're handy, consider that since this product is no more complex than that.
1. I am Amazon Prime member. Ordered on Thursday and expected delivery on Saturday. It actually arrived on Friday.
2. I was able to install the item in the advertised 15 minutes without rushing.
3. I was able to hang 6 bikes with no problem as long as you alternate the direction of the bikes.
4. Quality was fine. Nice powder coat finish.
5. The hangers move whenever you hang a bike. This is no biggie. Once I finally decide where I want them permanently, I will use some sort of clamping system to prevent movement. A zip tie may even work.
6 I would not hang a high end road bike with light weight wheels from this rack as I do not like the pressure the hangers put on the wheels. The angle just makes me feel uncomfortable.
7. Be careful when deciding on the height. I put the bar 8 feet off the ground. I can hang the bikes easily at that height and I can still put something under them (including the front end of a car; not an SUV).
8. It could be a small challenge to get the middle bikes if you hang 6 bikes. Easy to access all the bikes if you only hang 4 bikes. The actual bar length is 51" but only 48" are usable. An extra foot would have been nice, even 6".
So there you have it in a nutshell.
Wall Mounting – As my installation was a masonry garage mount, I overcompensated by using four concrete anchor inserts - each rated for over 100lbs. With the use of a hammer drill, a level and lots of measuring, I managed to get the mount up very securely in just over 40 minutes.
Bike Height – This was a major mounting concern since neither the directions nor the web gives any clear direction as to whether vertically mounted bikes should be placed with the lower tire entirely off of the ground or not. I close to mount so that the tires are approximately 4 inches off the floor out of concern that long term storage might deform a tire having prolonged pressure on a single floor contact point. Some stability to each bike is provided by the lower tire resting against the wall rather than the floor. (Photo 1)
Stability – This is where the bike rack fails badly in my opinion. The problem is that any lateral movement of one of the bikes caused by bumping into one or by taking one down without great care causes its mounting hook to pop off of the rack.
Photo two shows how the weight of a bike acts to pull the attachment hook assembly upward and out of a stable position on the rack. No amount of fiddling, wheel rotation or anything else affects the adverse direction of the force impacted on the hook attachment. This happens on each one of the hooks once a bike is loaded. I believe that the reason for this problem is that the lower lip of the hook attachment brace is too shallow (Photo 3). The only solution that I can see would for me to have someone weld the hooks down into place.
Safety – Now that my rack is mounted on masonry, I can’t very well return it and refill the holes in the wall. Fortunately, with my kids in college, I don’t have to worry about little tykes bumping into a bicycle and suddenly having a bike come tumbling down onto their little heads. And, yes, I’ve already found that the displaced hooks are just that sensitive to popping off. I’m just hoping that a bike doesn’t come crashing down onto my car.
I’d love the design of this rack if it weren’t for the total dysfunctionality of the bike attachment hooks. It’s just impossible to recommend a rack that might flatten your child or just be an all-around pain to use.
