Bike Stands and Bike Racks Gallery
This is a public gallery of our products. It will show you how they have been used by different customers over the years in different situations. Feel free to use any of the images you find here to illustrate your blog or website – a link back to our page will always be appreciated.
CLOSE UP BIKE RACK
If you need a close up look at our bike racks try using these pictures. You are welcome to copy these pictures and use them in your blog or website.
Our bike racks are designed to store all of the most commonly seen bicycles in Australia. Generally speaking the only kinds of bikes that do not fit in one of our stands are 12″ kids bikes (usually ridden by 3-5 year olds) and some downhill mountain bikes with oversize fat tyres.
The distance between the two uprights on our stands is 60mm, and to put this into perspective, road bikes generally run a 19-23mm tyre, touring bikes about a 30mm tyre and standard mountain bike tyres are between 44mm and 56mm. This means that if you are purchasing our bike racks to provide parking for commuters then generally speaking our stands will accommodate all bicycles that they are likely to use.
DOUBLE SIDED RACKS
Double sided bike racks are also available for small spaces.
Double sided bike stands are a great idea if you have limited space and you need to store or park a large number of bicycles. The only difference between our double sided and normal bicycle parking stands is that we insert an extra stand facing the other way between each existing stand on a single sided bike stand.
We do not have these products in our online store as I find that it causes the casual website viewer a good deal of confusion. However they are available for sale and the price of:
a 5 bike double sided stand is $305 (same dimensions as a 3 bike single sided stand),
a 7 bike double sided stand is $425 (same dimensions as a 4 bike single sided stand),
a 9 bike double sided stand is $545 (same dimensions as a 5 bike single sided stand), and
an 11 bike double sided stand is $665 (same dimensions as a 6 bike single sided stand).

One of the most common questions we get asked is how to efficiently and neatly layout a set of bicycle parking stands in a given space.
If you are using bicycle parking stands then the most important thing to do is to place the stands far enough from a wall or other obstuction so that the wheel inserted into the stand has enough space to poke through the other side. Please take a look at the pictures on our Bike Stand Photos gallery which shows you exactly how the front or rear wheel of a bicycle fits into our stands.
My general recommendation is that you place the bike stands no closer than 300mm to a wall (assuming you wish to install the stand parallel to the wall) so that the bike tyre can ‘poke out’ without coming in contact with the wall.
Likewise, please remember to leave a little bit of room to the left and right of the bike stand to allow for the bits of the bike that stick out – such as the pedals and the handlebars. So, assuming you are installing a 5 bike stand (1580mm in overall width) you will need approximatley 2.2 to 2.3 m of wall space.

SYDNEY BIKE SHOW
Official supplier of Bicycle Parking for the Bicycling Trade Show Sydney.
We were the official supplier of Bicycle Parking for the Bicycling Australia Trade Show when it was held in Sydney. We operated a free bicycle parking service which allowed visitors to the show to park their bicycles outside the building.
At this show we also provided bicycle racks for the bicycle “Test Ride Area”. This was a separate area outside the building where bicycle wholesalers allowed members of the public the chance to test ride some of their new models. Our bike racks were used to keep the bikes upright when they were not being ridden, but as you can see our bike stands were mostly empty as the bikes spent a lot of time being test ridden!
BIKE RACKS IN A VAN
These photos show you how to protect your bike from damage when transporting it in a van.
Now whatever you can do in the back of a ute, you can do better in the back of a van. Used as a wheel chock, and bike rack can hold your bike upright in the back of your van and protect it from damage. In these pictures you can see that a three bike stand was installed in an old Transit Van and tied into position (as it wont just stand happily in place whilst you are driving around town). Tie Down or Elastic Straps are most commonly used and available at Hardware or Auto Accessories stores.
Best of all, if you carry the bike upright in your van you still have space for all your other belongings and if you need to leave the bike in the van you dont have to worry about security as you can just lock it inside. Carrying your bike on a rear car mount carrier does not give you this advantage.
BIKE RACKS IN A UTE
These photos show you how to protect your bike from damage when transporting it on a ute.
A few years ago, one of the guys who used to work in our factory was a keen mountain bike rider and used to spend a lot of weekends riding around the Oxford Falls area in northern Sydney. And what do you think was the most convenient way for him to transport his bike to and from the trail? Why one of our bike racks of course!
Used as a wheel chock, and bike rack can hold your bike upright in the back of your ute and protect it from damage. In these pictures you can see that a three bike stand was installed in a tub tray, but a five bike stand can be used in the back of a normal 180cm wide aluminium tray. Now dont forget that you will have to tie the bikes into position as they wont just stand happily in place whilst you are driving if they are not held down. Tie Down or Elastic Straps are most commonly used and available at Hardware or Auto Accessories stores.
Official supplier of Bicycle Parking for the Bicycling Trade Show Melbourne.
We were the official supplier of Bicycle Parking for the Bicycling Australia Trade Show when it was held in Melbourne. We operated a free bicycle valet service which allowed visitors to park their bicycles outside the building.
You can see from these pictures that our bike stands are quite capable of providing parking for a large number of bikes in a relatively small space. As this bicycle parking facility was temporary this allowed us to have the rows of bikes a little closer than we would normally recommend. However, one thing you can certainly see from these pictures is that our stands are capable of handing bicycles of all shapes and sizes, and there is sufficient space between each bike for them to be easily inserted and removed.
