High Quality, Compact Bike Storage
Pro Bike Tool’s Upright Bike Stand is an excellent solution for cyclists with limited storage options. It’s a high-quality stand that requires no drilling holes in the wall or ceiling. Plus, it reduces the storage footprint by storing the bike in an upright position.
The Upright Bike Stand came in a single box and required minimal assembly. It took less than 15 minutes for me to assemble the stand using the company’s straightforward directions and an Allen key included in the box.
Once the rack was assembled, I tested it using my Salsa Cutthroat with 2.2 knobby tires. Using the provided elastic cord to secure the front wheel, I lifted the front end and adjusted the seat post stabilizer to the right height. And walla, like magic, the bike sat securely upright in the stand. I tried knocking it, concerned that my cat might brush up against it, but it didn’t budge.
The Upright Bike Stand is compatible with a maximum of a 2.3” width tire, including 26-29” wheel sizes, including 700 cc road, MTB, and hybrid wheels. One thing to note, this stand was not designed for use as a work stand. So please don’t buy it thinking it can double as a mechanic stand.
One other note regarding quality, Pro Bike Tool designed this rack to avoid scratching your floors or bike by using rubberized feet and seat post stabilizer.
At $79.99, this quality constructed Upright Bike Stand from Pro Bike Tool is the perfect option for when you can’t drill holes for wall or ceiling mounts. Or you live in a small apartment with no garage or shed.
The company sent me a few other products for testing and review. Stay tuned for additional reviews on those items in the near future.
