Build A Minimal, DIY Bike Rack

Build A Minimal, DIY Bike Rack

We’ve always loved a good DIY bike rack, and while the previous two racks we’ve featured grew progressively more streamlined, it’s hard to imagine a more minimalist bike storage unit than this DIY rack.

As the folks at Apartment Therapy noted, it appears as though this savvy apartment dweller has stretched two cables between eye hooks on the ceiling and floor, then strategically affixed an L bracket to the cable at the desired bike-hanging heights. Even better: The parts necessary to pull off this attractive bike rack are probably cheaper than the previously covered DIY IKEA bike rack.

  • This is great for inside the flat. But, my flat is up three flights of steps, and the bike will never see the inside of it.

    Do you have any ideas for the “shared”, body corporate space, ie, the ground floor driveway or the ground floor stairwell?
