Looking for a holiday gift for the cyclist in your life?
With space at a premium, storing more than one bike in a New York apartment can be tough. There are a lot of indoor bike racks on the market, but most of them require drilling into the wall or ceiling. This can be daunting if you're not handy, or renting and concerned that your landlord might not appreciate a bunch of holes in the apartment when you move out.
The stand leans against the wall, with rubber where it touches the wall at the top, and two feet that extend out at the bottom to stabilize it.
The rack comes in pieces, but only takes a few minutes to put together, and doesn't require any tools of your own.
Once it's up, the rack holds two bikes from rubber-coated hooks that adjust easily and attach with pressure alone.
Though it doesn't require any drilling, the rack lets bike handlebars swing slightly in a way that will leave scuffs over time, so if your landlord (or your cyclist friend's landlord) is persnickety, plan to paint before you move out.
