I was looking for a means of storage for two bikes that would actually enhance the decor room and with this rack, I found it!! I've had several people tell me it looks cool. Additionally, I wanted a rack where I would not be concerned about expensive bicycles taking a tumble, no concerns since this rack is built solidly and installs firmly as well. The rack was assembled and in-place in about 30-45 minutes. I would not hesitate to buy another one.
I love my new bike rack. I live in a studio apartment that's under 500 sq ft. and was looking for a bike storage solution that didn't look hideous (since I have to look at it every day). The OakRak Floor-to-Ceiling Two Bike Storage Rack is functional, yet stylish. My bikes are out of the way, but they are also sort of on display. My only complaint is that the assembly instructions were a bit vague. With that said, it was still very easy to assemble - similar to putting together IKEA furniture (is this the right screw/ does this go here or there/ etc.).
It was a bit less dark and red and more light and brown than I had hoped (honestly trying to match furniture by little jpegs with no color calibration is a horrible idea anyway), but it was really easy to set up and just as customizable as I had hoped (cramming two mountain bikes into a tiny horizontal wallspace, one wheel off, etc.) It looks good and gets compliments and if I should one day have the gumption to re-stain it, it will match my desk perfectly.
