Product arrived promptly and as expected. It was relatively easy to set up. I used a stud finder to guarantee I mounted it when the ceiling could stand some pressure from the rack. You need to apply a lot of pressure to ensure the rack stays in place. I'm running a 33lb mountain bike in the upper position and a 40lb downhill bike in the lower and the rack is working just fine. My bikes are very big (I'm 6'5") so it took some time rearranging with the hooks to find a placement that worked well for both bikes. I had the rack up and in the right spot in about half an hour. Another half hour to get the hooks in the right spot. Then another half hour when I realized I wanted the whole rack rotated about 15' for better space usage in my hallway.
Since then I haven't moved it. It looks great and seems to work really well.
How accurate was the sizing? Great

We bought this rack not only because we needed the space but to protect our bikes and to not detract from our newly redone living room. Most racks are metal or black and while that works for many, this oak rack looks fantastic. Happy for function and form :)

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.
I searched long & hard for racks to hold my bikes in my bike room. It's hard to find something that isn't cheaply made and/or that looks terrible. I was looking for something made of real wood in a dark hue that could hold at least 2 bikes (TT, road, CX & MTB) and that looked classy.
I was thrilled to pick up 2 of these OakRak bike racks in the darkest color version. The racks were straightforward to install & they look really great. I've received nothing but compliments since I installed them in my bike room. And the value for the $$ on Overstock is simply wonderful!
It is very important to measure carefully and get the tension just right so that the rack holds firmly in place. I would recommend having 2 people assist with the installation, if it's at all possible.
I've already recommended this particular item to several of my fellow cyclists. I am VERY pleased with this purchase.
A wood, finished bike rack is great for spaces where you don't want to disrupt style with a merely functional, base metal rack. I already received a complement on the bike rack - the complimenter noticing the wood and expect that it wasn't a consumer product but a custom made solution.
It is currently holding my road bike and mountain bike with no problem.
If my ceiling is on a slight incline, will this rack still be usable in the space?lbr2013 on Sep 3, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us lbr2013. The rack will not work alone with an inclined ceiling, but if you are able to cut a wedge of wood suitable to make the top plate lay level across the ceiling, then the rack would work for your needs. Longer hardware would be needed to get the top plated screwed into the joust. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Do I need to screw anything in the walls are ceiling t have this installed?island8998 on May 16, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This rack is tension mounted, and it is not necessary to screw the drywall screw into the ceiling, but if the customer is in an area where earthquakes are probably, than it is a great safety precaution to screw into the ceiling. It is only a small drywall screw, which can easily be filled upon taking down the rack. But if you are against any holes in the ceiling, and dont intend on putting more than 100lbs of weight on either side, you will be fine with not mounting the rack, as long as you test the tension mounting upon installation.
