    Storing my fat bike

    Hey everyone .. looking for the best, space saving way to store my fat bike.

    Has anyone installed a Steadyrack Fat Rack before?

    If so, what are your thoughts?

    It states 3”-5” tires but the pics don’t appear that way to me.

    It's states up to 5" on their website at https://www.steadyrack.com/classic-fat-rack/

    The pic there definitely looks like it can accomm up to 5"

    $80, no thanks, not much there you can't do with a few blocks of wood. Don't really see what is space saving about it

    You can do the same thing with a large hook that screws into a stud. About$5

    Looks like you can swivel them to the left and right, to be pretty flush with the wall. Im not super handy, so looking for something that's already built.

    It's not going to be all that flush with the wall as the bar end will stop it from pivoting.

    This may give you more room:

    For $80 I would put the money toward a work stand and store the bike on that.

    $80?? As stated above, even though they 'rotate' the bars are going to limit how far against the wall bike will go.

    Home Depot...less than $5 each. I don't have a fatbike but there's many different sizes available to accommodate wider rims.

    If you loosen the stem bolts and turn the bars 90 degrees and remove the pedals you can store bikes much closer together. Takes just a few minutes to get em ready to go again.

    You don't have to be handy to screw a J hook into the stud behind the wall. It's as easy as Pi 3.141592653589793238462643383279502884197169~

    I have five bikes on steadyracks mounted on my wall in the garage. I looked at many options for storing the bikes and settled on the steadyrack design because it could fold to the wall. IMO, they make the best use of space (vertical and folding) and has allowed me to park two vehicles in the garage, with a some room to spare. They are also well made. For me, they have been worth the money.

    Hooks!
    (install at the correct angle and it will work better)
