This barely does the job. The metal isn't quite heavy/strong enough to really hold up a bike in a sturdy way. It accomplishes my goal in the garage to get the kids' bikes more organized, but I would have paid more for a stronger metal in retrospect. The slots for the bikes are also slightly too close together, making it a little tricky to line up the bikes so they will fit next to each other.
The Oakrak Floor-to-Ceiling American Red Oak Two Bike Storage Rack is aesthetically pleasing, easy to assemble and use, made in the USA, and is of quality construction - it was everything I was looking for in a storage rack.
I am already considering purchasing another of the same unit because I have too many bikes.
Very durable item. I use it in my apartment to hold a lightweight road bike on top and a heavier mountain bike on the bottom. So far, I haven't had any problems and I regularly take the bikes on and off the racks. It took some amount of trial and error to position the hooks and to line it straight up to the ceiling but once you have that set, you don't have to worry about it. I haven't seen it lean or shift; it seems to be pretty secure in its position. If you want to save yourself some trouble, measure the distance from the bottom of the tire to the top tube and use that as a guide to set the hooks in place. Then, test it by putting the bike on the hooks before you screw them in all the way. Also, if you have a construction leveler, that would definitely help to ensure the stand is straight. This item is definitely useful for storing bikes where space is scarce.
