Feedback Sports Rakk Bicycle Storage Stand

The Feedback Sports Rakk is a fairly clever bicycle storage stand. It features a spring-loaded swingarm that allows it to hold wheels from 20″ to 29″ and in widths from 20mm to 2.4″. It’s not only hands-free, it automatically adjusts for the different wheel sizes—you just roll the bike into the stand.

The Rakk can support a bike by either the front or rear wheel, which is handy for two big reasons. One, even if you have full-length bolt on fenders, you can slide the front wheel into the rack. And two, if you’re using several racks side by side, you can store the bikes in alternating fashion.

An interesting design element is that the stands can be linked together for added stability or for creating retail displays.

The Rakk bicycle stand is available in black, white or silver and retails for $42 each. Visit www.feedbacksports.com for more info.

    I’ve been using one of these for about 10 years now (exact design, different brand) and for half that time it was my excuse for a workstand before I actually bought a real one. I got mine from a bike shop that was going out of business at the time. Great stands!

    I have one of these that I was given as a gift that’s a great match for my Globe Centrum because the unique frame geometry doesn’t allow for most kickstands to be mounted to it.

    I have not seen one of the Minoura racks of this type in Canada, but have one here in Tokyo: http://www.minourausa.com/english/storage-e/ds30al-e.html

    $20 for a stand that is good enough for doing most repairs!
