Wall Hooks

edited October 2018 in Road buying advice
The rims on a couple of my bikes have got deeper recently and they no-longer fit in the wall mount hooks I have without deflating the tyres.

Can anyone recommend some cheap alternatives that will fit a 60mm rim with a 25mm tyre?

    They're marketed as ceiling hooks but a mate has them screwed to a wall and his deep rims(Mavic Cosmic carbon) fit OK.

    Couple of these should do the trick and a bit cheaper than the Tredz option. They also have wall fixing eyes so easier to mount

    They do 60mm rims no problem but I think that would be the limit.

    Are you standing the bike upright? If so get a clug wall mount. Mine works superbly.
  • Possibly not that helpful but:

    I modified some laminated wood shelf brackets to mount my planet X.

    Bike now lives indoors :D

    just search on ebay for "Beech shelf brackets"

    be careful hanging a bike off a carbon rim - I slightly damaged a C50 rim with just the weight of the bike resting on one point on the rim for a few weeks :( - I wouldn't hang another bike by a carbon wheels on a wall hook ;)

    Unfortunately space is an issue and vertical hanging is the only way I can accommodate 7 bikes (including those belonging to the rest of the family) and still have space to swing a cat.

    Cheers for all the suggestions. I've ordered one from BBB that appears to accommodate 120mm as a test.

    That’s a good size beer fridge.

    At the moment it's mainly cider. Its content varies depending upon whether I go to Cornwall or France on holiday.

    This is an old picture and it just occurred to me that I don't still own a single bike shown here.
