New - Wall Mounted SpaceRail

Press Release: Stashed Products

Since the original Stashed SpaceRail ceiling mounted system launched in 2022 – the SpaceRail has revolutionised bike storage for hundreds of customers and commercial clients around the world. The modular SpaceRail System allows more bikes to be stored in less space, without compromising access. Available in 1 to 24 bikes with our complete kits, the SpaceRail has got you covered.

At Stashed Products we're continuing our quest to liberate previously unused space for storing bikes in, by adding two new SpaceRail systems to our range:

• New - wall mounted SpaceRail bike storage system.
• New - angled ceiling SpaceRail bike storage system.

bigquotesOur mission to re-purpose, previously unused space to store more bikes in, continues with the launch of two new SpaceRail storage systems. The new wall mounted SpaceRail shares all the great features of our ceiling system and is just as easy to install. New, specially designed adapters, allow our SpaceRail to be installed on angled ceiling areas as well, giving bike enthusiasts even more ways to store more bikes in less space. Elliot Tanner - Founder, Stashed Products

New - Angled Ceiling SpaceRail

The sustainably designed SpaceRail system makes it easy to safely stash any type of bike including e-bikes, mountain bikes, hybrids and road bikes, with tyres up to three inches wide.

SpaceRail kits are the simplest way to get the SpaceRail system installed, providing everything that’s needed to start your own bike storage revolution. Designed for 1 to 24 bikes, installation is a stress- free zone, for anyone with basic DIY skills. Additional rails and hooks are easily added, so you can design the perfect configuration, for storing your growing bike collection.

What’s so special about the SpaceRail system?

The SpaceRail bike storage system by Stashed, blends premium quality with thoughtful design features. Designed to solve a very specific problem of how to store more bikes in less space, every part of the system has been developed with the end user firmly in mind. Of course, you could have a bash at building your own solution, but it’s unlikely to come fully loaded with all the features that define the Stashed SpaceRail, including:

• The beautifully designed sliding hook, that incorporates Stashed Products’ patented auto-locking ball joint mechanism. This minimises the risk of any bike hanging fumbles, caused by unwanted movement or rotation of the hook. Once weighted, the hook glides effortlessly back and forth and rotates through 360⁰ giving you easy access to your ride of choice. Suitable for all types of bikes, including e-bikes, road bikes and mountain bikes with tyres up to three inches wide. Built using 6063 T6 aluminium, 304 Stainless Steel and Composite Polymers.

Loading and unloading bikes is easy with our specially designed auto-locking ball joint mechanism

• The luxurious polymer hook cover is designed to evenly spread the load, so bikes can be stored with confidence, without risking damage to delicate and expensive rims.

• Full 360⁰ rotation of the hanging hooks is the SpaceRail's not so secret, space saving weapon. The ability to swivel bikes means more bikes can be stored safely, using up to 50% less space compared to similar systems. Simply hang, spin, slide, store - simple!

SpaceRail – from Wales to the world...
bigquotesThe response we’ve had to our SpaceRail has been incredible — we’ve simply not stopped since we launched early in April 2022. I felt like I had designed a good quality product that solved a specific problem — but nothing prepared me for the overwhelmingly positive response we’ve had since we launched. We’ve experienced unexpected success in the US market, and this is one of the areas we’ll be developing during 2023. Times are tough for businesses right now, which makes me even prouder to be flying the flag internationally for Welsh design and manufacturing. Elliot Tanner - Founder, Stashed Products

 bike hooks cost $5 at home depot

 Ya, but they're not "luxurious" now, are they? Wink

This is nifty, because it allows you to hang a ton of bikes in a pretty small space. But the tradeoff for that, other than cost (vs. the very simply and cheap solution of a few 2x4s or some plywood screwed into studs and a bunch of bike hooks to hang the bikes) is the futz factor. If you want to get to the bike in the middle, you have to move stuff around. For people who are really space constrained, that might be worth it. If you've got the space, though, having hooks spaced far enough apart on the wall to where you can just roll bikes into position on their back wheel is where it gets truly "luxurious" - because there's no futzing to get to any bike, no moving stuff around on the rails, no need to lift stuff to hang.

 Thats what it always comes back to. I shopped all sorts of storage systems, ended up with a couple of 2X4s to bridge the studs on my garage wall and a few hooks from HD; probably a $30 project all in. A McMaster savvy and more ambitious storer of bikes could probably get a sliding system going for $100. The prepackaged, turnkey solutions out there are sexy, but just another sign of cycling gentrification.

Also, sustainable my ass.

 You can build a 8 bike sliding system at Home Depot for about $200

 I'm sure this is a nice system if you're short on space (luckily I have plenty of place for $5 hooks) but I'm just imagining myself trying to slide bikes around and them slamming into each other and me having a total melt down, and my neighbors calling the police

 @g-42: how does that allow you to fit more bikes in the same space?! Lol.You can maximize the spacing with a couple of 5$ hooks, this wont magically make your bike smaller.Once the frames or pedals or the bar touches, thats your limit…If you have enough space to push one bike out of the way to access another bike, then you have MORE SPACE and could easily space out the bikes with a bigger gap between them = 5$ hook will do just that… That’s it, ain’t no 600$ that’s gonna change the laws of physics.

 @neroleeloo: the point is you don't have to hang them that close you can hang them with plenty of room for the hanging operation then you can slide them super close togeather, also helps with the bikes put on in opposite directions, putting them on that way and pushing them togeather saves quite a bit of space, without sliding you would have to remove at least one adjacent forward facing bike to get a backwards bike out, which would be a total pita

 They also don't slide.

 Yep, but this is pretty cool
Add those $5 hooks, to some unistrut mounted on the ceiling, and you’re golden.
You can build a reasonable facsimile for $100 if you have a buddy who’s a tradie

But this is a great idea, and kudos to SpaceRail for doing this
  • 1 0
 @g-42: Thanks for the comments! One of the great advantages also is being able to compact the bikes to improve your security options. Getting the bikes close together saves on the number of expensive chains and locks required, and you can get great access to the bikes to lock them up.

We also find that most people are storing a large number of bikes, so you get increased space saving advantages with the higher bike quantities compared to people with just 2 or 3. This is where the system really comes in to its own and improves over fixed hooks.

 @deez-nucks: Our Trolleys are free running and smooth, but they are tuned to have some rolling resistance so you don't 'slam' bikes in to each other. There is also a spacer system on the Trolley so when you bring bikes close together the Trolleys touch before the bikes do and stop contact.

 We have a silly amount of bikes, and use the somewhat similar Up.bike storage system for them.

The problem we have - that SpaceRail doesn't seem to solve - is that MTB handlebars are stupidly wide and get tangled with other bikes when you're trying to put them away and get them out.

You'll notice most of their photos show narrow-bar road bikes, for a reason.

I'm not sure what the solution is, but if I were going to shell out more $$$s for a fancy bike storage system, it'd be one that solved the "lots of MTB's in a small area without their handlebars getting tangled on stuff" issue.

 I agree, and the solution is to stagger the heights, but nobody has found a way to do that yet.

 @Jaylynx: Those are cool - and I actually looked at them before I bought the Up.bike system. But they're also $100/ea, and for the amount of bikes we had, Up.bike was significantly cheaper on a per-bike basis.

Of course, the real solution is just become insane biker like Remy, start a YouTube channel and get several-hundred-thousand subscribers, and then get the Steady Racks for free.

 @Endurahbrah: If you run two 2x4s horizontally along your wall, about 10" vertically apart from each other, then that becomes child's play. The lower one goes where the bikes for the people who can't/don't want to lift them need them to rest on their rear wheels, so they can just roll them in, hook the front wheel, and presto. The higher one is for the people in the family who are OK with lifting their bikes a little - so that's what they do. Nicely staggered like that, we're fitting four bikes in about 6 feet of horizontal wall space (with helmets/packs/shoes and such stored on hooks/shelves in between the bikes at the wall).

 @Endurahbrah: Shamelessly stolen from what they do at my local shop to store bikes in for service.

 Seems like the obvious solution would be to mount the rail higher and every other hook has a 6" extension.

 @Endurahbrah: if alternating hooks were 6" longer...
  • 2 0
 Thanks for the comments everyone. We find it works great with MTB... in fact my home storage has 6 x MTB all really nicely nested together. Our system has a patented ball joint system which allows you to angle bikes outwards or inwards during the final movements into position to improve your ability to tesselate the bikes and put bars above or below each other. No other product or homemade solution has this, but it makes it significantly easier when handling bikes. We have never seen the need for alternating height hooks as with a little trial and error you can tesselate pretty much any combination of bikes really well.

 Nice!

How difficult are they to put bikes on/take them off? Aka, are you using this every day when you come back from a ride, or just for storage a couple of times a season?

Also, what'd you use to suspend the strut channel out from the wall?
  • 1 0
 @atourgates: What all the homemade systems are missing is the auto-locking mechanism. Our early prototypes used unistrut type components like the DIY systems mentioned, but the hooks slide and spin when you touch them with the wheel of the bike and you can fumble the hanging process. Especially difficult and potentially dangerous with E-bikes. Our hook stays fixed until you load the bike onto it, and then it is free to slide and spin 360.
  • 1 0
 @StashedProducts: This is true, as I have had that experience, which requires you to put the bike down and fix the hook and start over.

I really like your rack and wish you the best with sales.

 It amazes me what people will spend money on when you can make something that does exactly the same job for a tiny fraction of the price. I suppose people who can afford things like this don't know how to saw a piece of wood or use nuts and bolts.
  • 5 0
 I agree to a point...the ability to slide bikes and stagger heights easily without drilling new holes is appealing. This design also allow to easily move other bikes out of the way when hanging or removing bikes. I have simple hooks and have bars turned on several bikes that are hanging. If I ever build out a dream garage, something like this would be high on my list.

 After making my own version that cost close to $400 after buying the Unistrut rail, sliding trolleys, bike hooks, shelf brackets, and 2x4s, this is actually a good deal. The sliding really is nice if you have limited space, I can fit several bikes in one corner of the garage and still get them out, something I could not do with the $5 Home Depot hooks everyone is suggesting. If you had space though, yes those would work great, but this has worked well in a small space:

 First post on PB to say I have it and love it. Got it a year ago and it's held up to the families 7 bikes incredibly well. Yes, you do have to move things side to side to get bikes out (though the roll extremely easy) but I have it next to the car in the garage and it lets you move everything to the corner so getting kids/dogs/gear in and out isn't a chore.

 the issue comes when you have a very small person in the house (5ft tall) who rides an XS bike, and a very tall person (6ft 3) who rides an XL - the system has to be mounted high enough for the XL frame to hang off the ground, meanwhile the poor 5ft person has to lift their heavy bike 3ft off the ground to reach the hook - it just doesn't work.
  • 1 0
 What we have seen with this is mounting the system so it is suitable for the small person to use. Then hang the XL bike with the front wheel off.
  • 1 0
 Of course you can build it yourself for cheaper. I can weld up a frame for cheaper than I buy one, if only looking at materials cost. I could make laundry soap for less than Tide, but it’s a headache and the finished product isn’t as elegant. This thing seems elegant, simple, and well made - and for a reasonable price in the scheme of bike things. Hell, there are electronic seat posts that cost more than this. Brakes. Rear hubs. Cranks.

Why is everyone ok with spending hundreds on a hitch rack for their car, but not with spending the same for the rack their bike will spend the most time on? 1up makes a $400 single r bike hitch rack and there’s tons of them around my city. But an 8 bike storage rack for the garage needs to be $5 hooks and a 2x4?

 @LucaP: *for the most part not on the air side of most popular forks (that use the stanchion as the air spring) so the oil actually goes where you want it, the bushings, and on the damper side a good amount will puddle at rhe bushing which is beneficial
