Top Bike Hanging related questions
How do I hang a bike on a wall?
You can do this by using a bike rack or hook. Both methods require you to measure your bike’s length, height, or weight. You’ll also need to locate a wall that’s big enough to accommodate the bike without having it hit the floor or ceiling. You’ll also need a stud finder, a drill, and screws. While you can do this by yourself, you might want to book a handyman near you instead.
Does hanging a bike by the wheel damage it?
Hanging your bike by its wheel can damage it. This puts too much pressure on the rim, potentially causing damage in the long run. It’s better to hang your bike on a mount that uses two points of contact on its frame. When you book a bike hanging expert via Airtasker, they can help you find a safer way to store your bike.
How do I fit a bike rack to a caravan or motorhome?
Yes! Bike racks can be installed at the back of your motorhome or caravan. Camping trailers can even fit a bike carrier behind the tow ball. Just make sure that the bike rack you’re using is approved for caravan use, or recommended by your caravan dealer. If you need help doing rear bike rack fitting, our reliable handymen can help you out.
What’s the best way to hang a bike?
There’s no single best way to hang a bike on a wall - it would depend on the kind of space you have and how you want your storage to look. You can use bike hooks, similar to what the shops use. Others use a typical bike rack. There are also bike shelves, which offer single-bike and double-bike options. If you want to learn more about bike hanging options, you can book a Tasker and assess your options.
How close can I hang bikes?
Experts recommend allotting a space of 14-20 inches between bike hooks. This measure helps maximise the area while preventing tangled pedals. You can also store multiple bikes by using racks or shelves that accommodate more than one bike. Not sure what kind of storage to get for your collection or your family’s multiple bikes? Put up a task to help out with your bike rack fitting needs.
Can I hang bikes vertically?
Yes, you can! This method helps you save on floor space. There are special bike racks that allow you to store a bike - or even multiple bikes - this way. Just note that you’ll need to measure the length of the bike, instead of its height. While you can learn to install a vertical bike rack by yourself, try Airtasker and consult a bike rack fitting expert near you.
What do bike hanging services include?
Bike hanging can involve different kinds of bike storage tools, various surfaces, and even different locations, such as a flat or the back of your trailer. Our platform can help you find a Tasker who’s equipped to take on your particular request while staying within your specified budget.
Though the exact inclusions and process may vary from Tasker to Tasker, here’s what a typical bike hanging handyman can do for you:
Providing tools and equipment
If you’ve already purchased a bike storage solution, your bike hanging handyman will bring the necessary tools to install it. This can include a stud finder, screws, a drill, and wall anchors.
Got no time to run to the store? No worries - you can also ask your bike rack fitting expert to get it for you. In your task post, include that you’d like them to purchase a particular bike rack from your store of choice. Indicate your bike’s length or height, too. You can reimburse your Tasker for the purchase or have them drop by your house first to get the payment.
Mounting your bike rack, shelf, or hook
Your handyman can now mount your bike rack, hook, or shelf. To start, they’ll locate a wall that’s big enough to accommodate the bike without it hitting the floor or ceiling. You can also point out this space yourself. Then, they use a stud finder to look for places to anchor the rack.
Your handyman measures these points and makes sure they’re level with each other. They then drill holes into the wall and attach screws. Finally, they attach the bike rack, hook, or shelf based on the manufacturer’s instructions. Afterwards, your handyman can hang the bikes and make sure that they’re positioned at a safe distance from each other.
Providing tools and equipment
For those who need to install bike racks on their cars or mobile homes, Airtasker can help you locate nearby Graber bike rack installation experts and those who are familiar with caravan-approved bike carriers.
Bike hanging isn’t the only thing you can get done on Airtasker. Our platform can also connect you to handymen and contractors from a variety of fields such as electricians, plumbers, or construction workers. If hanging your bike rack is part of several to-dos for your new home, you can also get a Tasker to assist you with chores like furniture assembly or installing awnings and cabinets.
