Ikea’s Kvartal – A super-easy bike rack

Materials: Kvartal Wall Fitting

Description: I love Ikea’s Stolmen for building a bike rack, yet my current apartment required a different approach to store my roadbike. I needed a vertical rack.

I found my solution in Ikea’s Kvartal. I bought two wall fittings for $4.99 each. Perfect for mounting curtains and bikes – Turn them up-side down and you get two hooks for the handle bar of your bike.

Before drilling, ensure that height and width match your bike. You don’t want to drill twice.

It is not the most advanced hack around, yet it gets the job done perfectly.

    Do you think this would work from the ceiling as well? Also curious how much weight is supported as one of my hikes is steel frame

    This is perfect! I stumbled upon this site just yesterday when I was trying to figure out a creative way to hide my kitty box. We just upgraded from our “broke college student apartment” to our “less broke young adult apartment” and I’m desperate to upgrade and make it look nicer. So far, I’ve found everything I needed/wanted including an easy to use and install bike rack! Thanks Ikea Hacker!
