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.
