If you love to bike, then you may already know the struggle of deciding where to keep your bike at your Jacksonville, FL. apartment. One of the keys to having plenty of room for your bicycle is to rent a large enough unit, like the apartments for rent in Jacksonville, FL at Gran Bay at Flagler Center. Here are some tips for storing your bike in your apartment.
Find a bookcase or other piece of furniture where you can take our drawers or shelves to insert your bike when it is not in use. You may even want to buy a wardrobe and add a hook at the top for hanging your bike. Alternatively, you may want to consider a low piece of furniture that has room for you to store your bike on top of it securely. Then, you can use the remainder of the piece of furniture and the top for extra storage or some houseplants.
Another option is a leaning bike stand. Metal leaning bike stands are designed to lean against the wall, so you will not be doing any damage to your apartment walls. At the same time, you can securely fasten your bike to the stand helping ensure that it does not topple over and wake you up during the night.
Similar in many ways to some cat trees, one end of the bike column touches the ceiling while the other rests on the floor. It is held in place by tension, so you are doing no damage to your apartment. Then, you place the bike on the hooks on the pole.
If you do not want to lose your wall space to your bike, then consider the back of your door. You can use the main entrance to your apartment or an interior door. These hooks slide over the top of the door, like a wreath hook, and you place your bike on the hook.
People will think that you love camping when you put a bike tent up on your patio or balcony. Bike tents are just big enough to hold your tent, and they block the bike from people’s view. Additionally, bike tents help to protect your bike from the weather.
