Clug – Bicycle Wall Hanger


I’ve always had 2 reservations with hanging my bike on a wall. 1. The stress the weight of the bike can place upon my wheels and spokes, and 2. The fear of the mount ripping from the drywall. Clug manages to avoid both of these issues by utilizing floor support and taking the gravitational pull off the bike itself. Really, why do we need to have the bikes OFF the ground in the first place? It’s a clever, space saving, easily installed solution for bike storage needs.

    It takes hundreds of pounds and significant lateral forces to deform a wheel. A mere 20-30 pounds of radial force from a bike hanging in a stationary position should not be a cause for concern, as evidenced by the many bike shops that store their bikes this way.

    That said, Clug is an awesome idea; much simpler and less expensive than a lot of other wall-mounting products I’ve seen online.

    Two wheels are enough for a bike and its rider to hop a curb.

    A single wheel is more than enough for the bike to just hang.
