Best practice tips for storing bulky items

We all have it—hard-to-store stuff! There’s some items that make it extra tricky to keep in a convenient spot and often times we’re left feeling overwhelmed with all that stuff we own! The good news is that there’s lots of creative storage ideas that will make your life that much easier! Check out some top resources for storing those popular, bulky items that are invading your space.

 Bike storage

When it comes to bike storage there are a LOT of various options. Most of which can be used in the home or at your storage space! Each option lends itself to the specific type of space you may have or how often you are accessing your bike!

Here’s our top picks:

Option 1: Saris Cycle Glide —This is a great option if you’re looking to save space! The Saris Cycle Glide allows you to hang bicycles from the rafters of your garage. The coolest part? Unlike a traditional humble hook, this is a system of hooks mounted on glides. Once the bikes are on the hooks, they can be slid closer to the wall on the glides that mount perpendicular to the wall. And because the hooks slide back and forth on the lower set of glides, the bikes can be nestled neatly together, taking up a lot less space.

This system also makes it easier to take down the bikes when they’re hanging over a parked car.

Option 2: The Racor Bike Lift—This rope and pulley system design allows you to suspend your bike from your ceiling. Simply latch the hooks to the seat, and handle bars and pull the rope. A unique locking mechanism holds the rope securely in place to prevent accidental release.

 Option 3: Topeak OneUp Bike Holder—Looking for a storage solution for an apartment or other small space? The OneUp Bike Holder is classy and functional. A molded rubber bar keeps the front wheel stationary preventing the bike from twisting. It includes all mounting hardware plus a molded rear wheel pad to prevent tire marks on the wall.
