10 Cool DIY Bike Storage Ideas

5.99K 0

Bikes can be a little cumbersome in an indoor space. Given their slightly… bulky nature, it can be difficult to incorporate them into a space naturally, and having them simply leaning on a wall often isn’t a viable solution, as they can be knocked very easily. These inventive solutions can be easily DIYed, and are not only practical, but aesthetically pleasing bike storage solutions.

1. Simple and affordable

This quick solution involves attaching two large dowels to the wall. You can then use these to hold the frame of your bicycle.

 2. Bike Wall Storage using Hangers

Make a sleek and modern storage stand using none other than simple hangers . You’ll need to use a strong adhesive to hold them together, such as gorilla glue or E6000  This would also work with wooden hangers, just make sure you use a wood glue. It may also be an idea to reinforce your stand with screws or nails.

3. PVC bike storage rack

This, again, uses very few materials and is therefore a great option if you don’t want to splash out. Simply take a large PVC pipe, and cut down at an angle using a hand saw or a jigsaw. Smooth down the edges with sandpaper so it doesn’t scratch your bike, attach to the wall, and voila!

4. Multi-functional shelf stand

There are so many variations on this simple idea. In essence, what you need is a cube shaped wooden shelf, with a cutout to allow your bike to sit. It can also be made of one initial shelf, and a wooden extremity underneath for your bike. This bike display stand is great as it functions as a shelf, meaning it doesn’t look out of place or strange when your bike isn’t inside the house. It’s also pretty customisable (depending on your experience, skill, or just personal taste) which is nice!

5. Pallet bike stands

You can use pallets to store your bicycle in multiple ways. If you’re looking for a indoor bike storage, you can mount a pallet on the wall and attach hooks to this to support your bike. Alternatively, for a bike floor stand, simply lay down two pallets (you can attach them for reinforcement) to support multiple bicycles upright.

6. Wall hooks/animal heads

Like the look of animal heads but don’t want to commit? These bike stands allude to this style, while also serving a practical purpose. For the first, you’ll need a wooden plaque and a handle contraption. For the second, take free reign with strong wire or cable, pliers, and a few pipe saddle clamps.

7. PVC Bike storage rack

PVC is incredibly affordable as well as being flexible. Depending on the lengths and fixtures you buy, you can customise your stand to fit your needs – whether that be one bike or five.

8. Wooden bike floor stand

These two stands both look very sophisticated, and the first two even allow you to use your bike like you would an exercise bike. They can be constructed from scrap pieces of wood, and the construction is relatively simple. For the first, the main complication is in carving a semi circle for your bike to rest on (if you own a BMX bike, that is).

This wooden stand can be made with layers of plywood, bent into the correct shape. You’ll need a connecting piece underneath to hold your stand together. This has the added bonus of being space saving, as it’s very small, and can be moved around easily.

9. Wall mounted wooden storage

This first stand is made from layers of wood, cut into the desired triangular shape. The layers are glued together, and the sides sanded. Alternatively, this could be made from wooden planks eg. 2x4s, which may be a little less time consuming to complete. Either way, the design is cool and unique!

The final stand has a minimalist twist, although it may be an idea to incorporate a groove into this if you recreate it, so your bike stays put!

10. Homemade bike work stand

This is ideal if you need a bike floor stand or bike repair stand but don’t want to splash out on something you may not use very often. To build this, you’ll need a base piece of wood, some piping (an iron plumbing pipe will work well), connecting fittings and fixtures, and a clamp (or a pvc piece cut with a latch attached).
