Leaning your bike against the garage wall is fine for that old "mountain" bike you used to zip around campus in college. But your new 17-pound, carbon fiber thoroughbred is another story. To protect your bike from the damage caused by accidental falls, you need the Feedback Sports Rakk Bicycle Stand.
The Rakk's patented design holds either the front or rear wheel of your bike without scratching the spokes or rim. Thanks to an innovative spring-loaded arm that grasps the wheel and a three-point contact system to hold it in place, the Rakk accommodates road tires as narrow as 20mm and mountain bike tires up to 2.4" wide -- so it works with all types of bikes.
The Rakk's hands-free design couldn't be easier to use: simply roll the bike into the wheel slot for easy storage or display. You can even connect several stands together to hold multiple bikes. And when not in use, the Rakk's arm folds down for easy storage in the corner or on a shelf.
The Feedback Sports Rakk Bicycle Stand comes in Black, Silver, and White and accommodates most road and mountain bikes. It comes with clips for modular use.
Straight out of the box, nothing to assemble - excellent! Build quality seems legit, paint is nice and seems like it will hold up longer that my bike frame will. There is a small push bearing/button on the lower assemble to remove it from the upright position to fold for storage or transport. The two extra pieces on the side are meant to attach to other racks of the same - and would be pretty sweet if needed. Easy in/out - no bumps or bruises for your trusty steed - unless you have a teenage driver trying to park your new Porsche back into the garage from a joy-ride :) I may buy a few more, just because the price is cheap, the product is not, and your fellow riding peeps will be envious to get one.
I ordered this not only for holding the bike up in the garage but also as a possible repair stand to wash my mountain bike and do some minor repairs. I didn't want to expend the money for a full blown repair stand at this time and I think it will work for my needs.
I had some trouble getting it to open up because the botton "release" is a bit difficult to use. I think the manufacturer could do a better job with this part of the stand, thus my reason for only 4 stars. Finally was able to yank it open hard and it worked very well.
After looking over many other reviews, I decided to go with the RAKK Integrated Bicycle Stand for storage of an extra bike. The stand works
very well with a 26" mountain bike, and once you get the danged thing open, it is easy to use. You do need to be aware of something that is only mentioned in the paperwork inside the box: the stand will hold your bike in place ONLY IF THE (racked) TIRE REMAINS INFLATED - something that is not always the case when a bike is in storage a while.
I've been shopping around for bike stands for a while now and this has got to be the best bike stand bar-none! I have built in cabinets in my garage so i needed a floor stand to store my bikes. It will take up more room than wall bike holders, but if you have room to store your bikes upright, this is the floor stand for you. Its the only stand where you wont have to worry about damage to your wheels. Its simple design is engineering at its best.
AWESOME rack. I have a Trek Mountain bike, fits perfect! I bought a rack at the local bike store, but the bike leaned on it, and it touched the spokes which I didn't like. I read all the positive reviews, and they're exactly right. This rack is PERFECT, back your bike into the rack, and it holds it with no issues! Also, Realcyclist rocks, got the rack in two days! Great service!!!
I bought this rack to use with my 29er and my road bike. I was amazed how well it can hold either bike without any issues. The 29er's tire is pretty wide and does get stuck when I pull the bike out. You could even use the rack to work on your bike because it holds it so well.
Simple and easy to use! Love 'em! Holds my bikes nicely and securely. Very well built -- very solid; doesn't feel cheap. Doesn't get 5 stars because it would have been nice if it could hold 2.5 tires. Fortunate for me the tires on my bikes are 2.4 :-) can't beat the price! Bought two of them!!
Great minimal style storage system! opens up with a snap and has a spring in the back to let you slide your bike back into the sleeve. great balance and dont have the typical "fell over in the garage" excuse to tell my friends when theres a new scratch in the bike! haha....great product!
After trying a variety of stands, I finally discovered this gem. I own 6 now and will be investing in several more. They are great to travel with and are indispensable in my bike storage room.
I've been leaning my bikes for years and this is a great solution that prevents tip-overs and looks great. Simple design, secure hold, great price.
We have about 20 of these in a bike storage room. They do a fine job of holding a bike upright but there are a few quirks. Rear wheel works ALOT better than front. Uneven floor surfaces make it somewhat unstable. And when they are connected to each other they are just a hair close together making the bars all hit each other.
