The Bike Valet

The Bike Valet

Cars can be considered works of art. Boats can be considered works of art. The same goes for planes and trains. Why not bikes? Unless you still fit on the Huffy you took off sweet jumps when you were 10, your bike is probably a work of art. There’s a lot of design, engineering and general tooling that goes into a proper bicycle–too much for it to merely be considered transportation. Put it on display and not only do you get to show it off, you reclaim some much needed floor space. The Bike Valet is one of the simplest solutions for wall mounting a bike and it’s also one of our favorites. No confusing pulleys. No putting sixteen holes in your wall trying to find studs. No engineering degree required for installation. One paper template, two wall lags, one stud and ten minutes later the cold steel display is ready to go.
