How To: Make a bicycle rack out of repurposed closet racks

Make a bicycle rack out of repurposed closet racks

Danny Lipford and Joe demonstrate how to make a bicycle rack out of repurposed closet racks. Closet brackets can be used to store bicycles. Instead of hanging the bicycle on the ceiling for long term storage, fasten closet brackets to your garage wall to more practically easily access your bicycles on an everyday basis. First, drive drywall screws into the wall studs. Space the brackets about 16 inches apart. Hang the bike right on its crossbar from the brackets. This method only works with bikes with crossbars but it is very simple to put them on and off the brackets. With the bikes on brackets, you don't have to worry about the bike falling over and hitting your car when it is parked in the garage. You can also pad the hooks for greater protection.
