      Comments about Bicycle Rack - Aluminum Bike Racks - Tension Mounted by Gear Up:

      I like the fact that you can store two bikes one on top of the other, but we have owned the rack for a month and it has already fallen over once. We reinstalled it, with more tension and hopefully that will prevent further problems. [...]

      Comments about Bicycle Rack - Aluminum Bike Racks - Tension Mounted by Gear Up:

      Over carpet, rubber feet need a base. I replaced the top and bottom screws with threaded rods ground to a point to use between carpet covered concrete and a concrete ceiling. It is designed for a wood framed space. It's a COMPRESSION system, not a TENSION system. There's no compressile elements here at all. Needs design work to ease assembly and adjustment to use clamping mechanism rather than screw-in. Needs to be adapted to use over carpeted concrete (spikes) and textured concrete ceilings. Support arms could be significantly longer, beefier, to eliminate crowding when both sides are used to support 3 or 4 bikes. An accessory basket kit would help too, for such as gloves, helmets, other cycling gear.

      Rack does a good job for what I needed it to do. It is not quite as sturdy as I had hoped, but it is not flimsy or unsafe.

      Q & A


      Questions about this item:
      Shopper: Do you have to put the screw in the ceiling or can it stand on tension alone?
      robert e: Tension alone, but make sure its under a joist
      Terrence G: It is necessary to screw the top into the ceiling to prevent the rack from falling.
      Janice Y: Hi, our rack stands on tension alone with two kid/teen bikes.
      Ana E: I always like to be on the secure side so I screwed it to the ceiling. We even made sure it was screwed to a wood beam. Works fantastic !!!!!!
      Shopper: Is it easy to set up, and I can't quite tell how the bike is held to the rack?
      John V: My wife actually set this up. It is super easy. The rack comes with hooks that hold 2 bikes. The hooks are totally adjustable too. We hang 2 road bikes. We take them off & put them back on almost daily. It is helpful to put the nail/screw in the ceiling. We love the rack and now it is the only way to store our bikes. If we move, we will take this with us. And it is incredibly light weight.
      Comment(s) about this item:
      Stanley D S: We previously had this item in a previous house.
      Gail W: Don't have to attach to the wall.
      Edward H: It matches the one that I already have and it works just fine. We now have 4 bikes, not 2.
      Dina L: Space saver
