Or, “what will this space allow us to do?”
M and I went out and bought these vertical bike rack hooks, with pivoting arms so you can “fold” them towards the wall.
I like the design concept, and being in a small New York City apartment, I was banking on this hook working for both of our bikes.
And it would have.
If only the drywalls weren’t shite.
Even with these spider anchors that hold up to 80 pounds, as soon as we put my bike on the hook, the top half of the rack just popped out of the wall.
The directions say to mount them in wall studs, but alas, they elude us.
Now there are three big holes in the wall which, of course, will be filled in with spackle. Right now they just look like interesting “wall art.”
So where does this leave us?
Trying to figure out the best place to put the Delta two bike gravity rack, which has served me well for the two or three years that I’ve owned it. The only issue we’re facing with this at the moment is that the bikes are horizontal.
Not the most optimal of space utilization.
