    Bike Rack Storage

    So, when your rack is not on your car where and how do you store it?

    I have a hitch mounted yakima hold up. Whats your solution so you don't trip over it and have to move it when its not in use or in the winter..?!?!?!

    Good job!

    I have a Kuat NV2. Pretty sure the RackDock would be compatible with other hitch racks (brands) but check with Kuat beforehand.

    Thats pretty cool. Never knew it existed. I was thinking mounting a 2 inch receiver somewhere in the garage and sticking it on it but this looks much cleaner. and less ghetto. but sometimes ghetto is cool.

    I hang it from hooks on the garage wall. Lowes HD etc have a variety to select from.
    What, me worry?

    Why take if off your car? Keep it on there so people know you're cool.

    True, I can brand hop to whichever one gets top billing in a blog review or on youtube to make sure I stand out at the trail head.

    My old hitch rack was not foldable so I had to store it in my garage and hoped that I didn't trip on the tongue. I recently traded my truck and sold the rack. I now use a trunk rack for my bikes. I just leave the rack in the trunk of my car seeing I rarely use my trunk as it is.

    I store it in my 10 x 10 cage that comes with our condo along with four bikes, five pair of skis, surfboards, Christmas items, beach chairs, winter/summer cloths, etc. If you do it right, it all fits with room to spare. I gave up using a bike rack a few years ago. Bikes go in the back of my Subaru Forester when I travel anywhere.

    I have the rack attack wall mount. Its similar to the kuat unit and holds my Yakima HoldUp with ease. It also has a mount to store a hitch if needed.

    Sorry for the sideways pic. some reason they loaded that way
