Ceiling Bike Rack vs Vertical Bike Rack

Ceiling Storage Racks & Hangers Aren’t as Safe - Choose A Steadyrack Instead

Have you ever watched someone try to shove a ‘too-big-for-the-overhead-compartment’ suitcase into the overhead compartment on a busy plane? It’s awkward and heavy and everyone is just waiting for it to be over, right? That’s what it looks like when someone tries to hang a heavy bike on a ceiling bike rack. Sure, it’s a storage option, but is it worth the blood, sweat and tears it takes? We don’t think so. That’s why we created Steadyrack – the easiest bike storage available.

Picture this - you’ve been out on a glorious, long, hard ride. You come home and all you want to do is jump in the shower, but you still have to wrestle with your bike to get it stored away in your ceiling storage rack. With a Steadyrack, there’s no heavy lifting involved – just roll it into the vertical rack and you’re done!

Overhead bike storage is exactly that; over your head. It’s not convenient, or easy to use, or even safe! Why risk a concussion for your bike storage? Streadyrack’s unique 160 degree pivot feature means you can easily store multiple bikes, right on your wall without compromising on safety. Unlike with a bicycle ceiling hanger, with a Steadyrack there’s no risk of the bike hitting you on the head, crashing onto the roof of your car or falling to the floor from frame damaging heights. Hanging your bike from the ceiling requires pulleys, levers, and space – using a vertical bike rack like Steadyrack requires only you and a wall.

Ceiling hooks, overhead racks, roof mounted ceiling bike hangers – whatever you want use, they all have one thing in common – they’re not a Steadyrack. We’ve designed Steadyrack to be the ultimate bike storage solution, anything else doesn’t cut it. See for yourself!

Why Steadyrack over a ceiling bike rack?

Steadyrack offers a unique, patented bike storage solution that is easy to use and saves space. Steadyrack's can be used in your home garage, inside your living room,  in your apartment, condo, on your balcony or, in fact, almost anywhere you have some wall space.

No Lifting

No need to lift and juggle your bikes onto a hook, just balance your bike on the back wheel and push and it will roll up into the rack. It’s a simple upright bike storage solution. Compact & easy to use.

Our bike storage racks are loved by bike riders because there is no lifting required so you can ride hard and store easy. The Steadyrack works using a pushing and pulling action to load and unload bikes, making itsuitable for people of all ages, capabilities, and strengths.

We have a variety of bike storage racks available suitable for many different types of bikes including eBikes, road bikes mountain bikesfat bikes and bikes with fenders

Space Saving – Folding Bike Storage

Steadyrack’s revolutionary bike storage design allows you to store your bike upright and saves more of your valuable floor space. When the bike rack is empty, the arm simply folds away, making them a compact folding bike storage solution.

Steadyrack bike racks can be mounted vertically to almost any wall and will conveniently swivel up to 160 degrees, from side to side. This allows for much greater flexibility and significant space saving advantages. Unlike static racks, bikes can be overlapped in Steadyracks and stored much closer together without sacrificing ease of loading and unloading or access to individual bikes.

Steadyracks can be installed as close as 350mm apart and due to the swivel action, can be overlapped. This creates a stackable bike storage solution.

Safe, Secure & Lockable – Secure Bike Storage

Bikes fit snugly into Steadyrack bike racks. There is virtually no risk of bikes falling over or falling out of the Steadyrack, making them safer to use and minimizes the risk of damaging adjacent bikes, cars or causing injury to users. The racks fold closed when not in use.

Bikes can also be securely locked to our racks using conventional chain or D type locks, making them extremely secure bike storage solutions.

Bikes will not easily dislodge or swing around and cause injury or damage to people, cars, or adjacent bikes. If someone bumps into a bike in our racks the pivoting arms will move and will absorb the impact. This prevents damage or injury from accidental dislodging or swinging around.

Easy to Use

The unique design of the Steadyrack bike rack means there’s no lifting required. Open the support arms, balance the bike on the rear wheel then use a pushing and pulling action to load and unload bikes into and out of the two support arms.

You are able to load and unload your bikes at any angle. No need to move cars out or unload other bikes to get your bike out of the racks or juggle bikes in the air and line up with a hook.

Steadyrack is easy to use for people of all ages, capabilities and strengths and means even heavy bikes can be easily stored vertically on a wall.

Built to Last

Made with high quality steel components and plastics which will last a very long time when properly maintained.

Change your bike, no need to change racks. If they have a front wheel one of our racks will suit meaning your Steadyrack can outlast your bike and potentially any future bikes as well.

Universal Fit

The Steadyrack can accommodate almost any type of bike, providing secure bike storage solutions for everyone. With detailed information on how to choose the best push bike storage rack for your bike, you’re sure to find one that will fit perfectly. If you’ll be swapping the type of bike that is stored in a Steadyrack, opt for our Fat or MTB Rack, as the wider arms will accommodate both large and small bikes, without compromising the space-saving and safety features.

Easy To Install

Even if you’re not super handy, Steadyracks are very easy to install.

Each Steadyrack comes with fixings included for timber or masonry installation and detailed instructions. They can also be mounted to any stable vertical surface capable of holding the weight of both the rack and bike.

You can find spacing and planning information along with installation videos, and instructions on our installation advice page.

Protect your Bike

The only contact with the rack when a bike is loaded is with the front tyre.

Steadyrack uses the tyre like a cushion to support the bike weight.

Unlike other racks available Steadyrack won't damage your wheels, rims, or the bike frame. They are also suitable for storing disc wheels as no part of the rack needs to touch the spokes.
