Bike Wall Mountby Antonio Herrera in outsideEbikes
Approximate overall material cost for this project:
$45 (if you were to buy new high quality hardwood)
$10 (if you were to use reclaimed wood you had laying around)
• Approximately 3 square feet of 3/4 inch thick wood stock
• Two 3/8th x 3in bolts with associated washers
• Wood Glue
• High gloss clear coat (optional)
• Wax paper (optional)
• Two small hinges and associated hardware (optional)
• Wood stain (optional)
• Table saw (hand saw with a steady hand will also work)
• Router (optional)
• Hand Drill
• Palm Sander (sand paper)
• Adjustable Clamps
• Wrench and 9/16th socket
Step 1: Cut Material to Size
With your design in hand you can begin cutting the pieces which will make the body of your mount. I used an old closet shelf.
awesome! Looks slick and I love it..... much better than the gravity rack in our living room :)
Very nice job ! …
I'll keep it in mind when I make my own ! …
Thanks for posting.
Awesome, glad you like it!
Thanks again for the instructions.
Did you use any screws to assemble it? Besides the hinges and the wall mount.
Or did you just use glue to asemble the body?
Very nicely done! Do you have an approximate weight limit for the rack, assuming you anchor it through drywall into a stud?
That's looking really good, nice work!
Looks great! I actually wish my apartment had exposed brick walls, unfortunately it's not very common in the Bay Area.
well this is in my garage. The house i'm living in is ~140y old so all walls are made of brick :-) ( But mostly they are covered)
Here's my rendition! I added a French cleat and repurposed some IKEA hardware to make it slightly easier mounting it to the wall. This was also my first time working with wood stains, so I'm fairly happy with how this turned out. Great instructable!
In this design the side walls are major structural components. The mount would have to be redesigned from the ground up with side access in mind, but it's definitely doable.
does this scuff the toptube at all? if so any ideas on preventing it?
Wow. This is one of those Instructables that always surprises me. I think that i'll be *&^% but then it comes out GREAT! Way to go.
your bike fit is in need of help.
here's a basic how to until i get my 'ible finished:
Haha, thanks. I'm actually just way too big for my frame now. I got my
bike back in high school (2005), I was significantly shorter then. I'm
6'3" now. (just don't have the extra 1500 to throw into a bike right now
Yes, if I had the tools to cut all my pieces to exact size this is what I would have done and recommend. Since I was using hand tools I knew this would not be the case and upon assembly there would be overhangs (excess material) that I would want to sand smooth which would remove the stain if I had stained prior to assembly.
You can make this cut with a coping saw by hand. As for cutting the boards individually. The plywood I was using is quite thin (1/4in) I would be weary of snapping the board, but you're welcome to give it a try!
Use the tools you have available to you my friend.
This is simply an esthetically pleasing way to store your bicycle, and free up floor space in the process.
So I didn't design this mount to hold a person, but if I were to design a generator for my bike. I would likely adapt the resistance unit on the home trainer I have: (https://www.1upusa.com/product-trainer.html)
So far I haven't had an issue where the pedal hit the wall. You could definitely incorporate that into your design though.
