What are bike racks used for?
Bike racks are used to safely store or secure bicycles. Once installed bikes can be locked into place on the rack to deter bike theft.
Depending on the type of bicycle stand you are purchasing you may be able to lock via the wheel or frame.For example our Sheffield bike stands will allow you to lock the bike frame to the stand while the likes of our low-profile bike rack allow the wheel to be locked in place.
Install bike racks where there are frequent bike users. Bike racks are perfect for schools, business premises, shopping centres and more. Bike racks can be installed to cater for large amounts of bikes.

What bike rack is best?
The best bike rack depends on your needs. One of our newest bike racks is the Versailles Bike Rack - this ornamental style cycle rack allows for storage of up to 5 bikes at a time and has a stylish design that is suitable for public areas and business premises.
For a ground mounted cycle rack our Low-Profile Bike Rack provides bike storage from 2 up to 6 bikes at a time. These steel bike racks are delivered flat packed for easy self install on site and are made from hot-dip galvanised steel for excellent durability outdoors where they will remain rust-free for life. Installing low profile bikeracks end on end to each other can help you maximise storage space in your area.
If you really need to maximise space, especially in an indoor area, you may need the Velo-Up Regular Two Tier Bike Rack. These highly effective bike storage products allow for bikes to be stored on two levels, helping you to maximise space as long as the area headroom exists.
