WHY THIS RACK?

Storing 1 or 2 mountain bikes is a relatively easy task. But getting beyond that you either give up space to your bikes, or trap bikes behind other bikes.

This rack was designed to accomplish 2 goals:

Take up as little space as possible.

Allow easy access to any bike without removing any others.

Vertical mounting is the obvious solution for storing more than two bikes in a limited area. There are some solutions out there, but there was plenty of room for improvement. With any solution, the rack needs to be secured into a stud, which limits the spacing of individually mounted racks to a minimum of 16". With static racks, the wide handlebars of mountain bikes become barriers: overlapping, blocking access, and hanging up on each other.

The Tight Stack uses a single mounting plate to allow the bikes to sit just 12" apart. Rotating the handlebars makes sure they don't overlap. And the ability to page through the bikes means any rack position can have unobstructed access to store or retrieve your bike.

DOES IT WORK WITH MY BIKES?

Mountain Bikes

The Tight Stack bike rack was designed with mountain bikes in mind. If you have multiple bikes with wide, flat bars, then this was made for you.

Road Bikes

Road bikes with skinny tires and drop bars work great, too. While they may not have all of the storage woes that wide-bar mountain bikes have, a lot of us have many styles of 2-wheeler, and road bikes will have a place in your rack, too.

E-Bikes

E-bikes may be too heavy. We have rated the rack at 50 pounds for each bike. 

Fenders

Fenders may not work with the front wheel basket: 

The mud guard style fenders that stick straight back from the fork crown work great. This was a design requirement here in the PNW.

However, if the fender curves around with the tire, then the bike will sit on the fender. It is not recommended to rest the bike on the fender.

Fat Bikes

Fat bikes will not fit in the current front wheel basket. The basket is 3.0 inches wide. Hopefully in the future we will have an option for this.

Smaller than 26"

For bikes with wheels smaller than 26", we offer adjustable length arms. These are compatible with 16"- 26" wheels, and may accommodate smaller than that.

TIPS & TRICKS

Stacking Bikes:

Turn the handlebars to the left, and swing the bike to the right,

OR

Turn the handlebars to the right, and swing the bike to the left.

Align your pedals:

If you have put bikes in a pickup bed, you know the drill - all cranks go to the same angle, and you know the pedals won't hit each other

Wheel Sizes:

Smaller wheels sit lower in the rack than bigger wheels. For some bikes, this may cause the fork to touch the rack. For wheels smaller than 26", we offer an adjustable length support arm.

Handlebars:

If all of your handlebars sit at the same height and angle, they won't touch. But most likely there will be a variety of cockpits. Swapping the rack placement of bikes can make a big difference in handlebar clearance between bikes.

Swing bikes to either side, whichever works best for your space.
