Bike Racks

Bike racks are durable metal stands designed to accommodate outdoor conditions while maintaining a high-quality appearance and presentation. The bike racks are typically arranged with vertical rungs for supporting standing bicycles, with a strong frame for attaching bike locks to prevent theft.

Styles

Bike Rack Starter: A bike rack starter is a standalone bicycle rack designed to support a set capacity of bicycles when not in use. The starter unit typically accommodates add-on units for increased capacity, with the option to increase as needed.

Double-Sided Bike Rack: Double-sided bike racks allow bicycles to be positioned from either side of the unit, supporting a larger capacity of bicycles.

Expandable Bike Rack: Expandable bike racks are designed in starter and add-on units, with the starter unit accommodating freestanding placement and standalone use. The add-on units are not freestanding, but instead combine with the starter unit for expanding bike rack capacity as needed.

Modern Bike Rack: Modern bike racks are designed to fit virtually any location, with a J-style base that allows the front tire to rest further in the bike rack frame. The curved lower portion of the bike rack supports enhanced security by allowing increased bike lock options.

Traditional Bike Rack: Traditional bike rack units have a four-leg style base design, angled for stability, and sporting vertical rungs or posts for sorting and supporting bicycle tires. The traditional bike rack design is available in starter and add-on units for customizing to suit different storage capacity needs.

Components

Bike Rack Add-On: The bike rack add-on units are non-freestanding bike racks designed to combine with the matching bike rack starter unit for a larger storage capacity.

Construction Materials

Galvanized Pipe: Galvanized pipe is usually steel or iron metal tubing, hollow in the center, with a protective coating applied. The protective coating is often made of zinc and it prevents damage from outdoor use, exposure to the elements, and typical wear. These coated pipes are usually coated using a hot-dip process, dipping the pipes in molten zinc for a long-lasting protective layer.

Tube Spacers: Tube spacers are metal, usually steel or iron, tubing used within the bike rack to form the vertical rungs that support bicycle tires when the bikes are stored on the rack. These tubes are spaced evenly to support a set capacity of bicycles, with strength to accommodate bike locks for security.

Features

Bike Capacity: The bike capacity of bike racks is the maximum number of bicycles a given bike rack can support at one time. In many bike rack models, this is equal to twice the length measurement (in feet). For example, a 10-foot-long bike rack can usually hold up to 20 bicycles, while an 8-foot-long bike rack can hold up to 16 bikes.

Bike Rack Length: The length of a bike rack is measured from one end to the other, with the long sides used to support stored bicycles. Many bicycle racks are available in sizes up to 10-feet long, with bike storage capacities typically twice the length. A 10-foot-long bike rack, for example, supports storage of up to 20 bicycles.
