Bike Weight Capacity of Steadyrack Bike Storage Wall Rack B-SCSR02-004


how heavy of a bike can this hold?


Expert Reply:

The Steadyrack Bike Storage Wall Rack # B-SCSR02-004 can handle mountain bikes and road bikes up to a 77-lb weight. This includes the vast majority of adult and kids' road and mountain bikes. About the only bikes that won't work are the heavier e-bikes and some recumbent bikes.

The rack's weight capacity does depend in part on the mounting surface where you install it. If installing this on the wall of your garage you will want to use a stud finder to locate a 2 x 4 wall stud. Sheet rock surfaces alone will not be strong enough to handle the bike weight. If a wall stud is not available then first installing a sheet of plywood, as in the customer installation shown in the linked image, is a good way to reinforce that mounting surface.

The storage rack includes heavy-duty mounting hardware and it is protected by a limited lifetime warranty.

If you want you can also use a cable lock such as # e98891 to lock the bike to the rack while it is stored.
