Both children and adults own bikes. It is not as expensive as a motorcycle; however, it is not totally cheap. A bike can cost as much as $200 and more. However, for those who are big fans of bikes, they wouldn’t mind spending more money to upgrade their rides and make it stand out among the rest. This kind of investment should have safe place where it can stay, especially during the night.

Bikes can either be stored indoors or outdoors. Some place their bikes inside using a single bike rack. It can be located on the living room, upstairs or the garage. When arriving home from a rainy day, it is truly such a pain in the ass to see drips of mud water on the floor inside the house. It is such an eye sore.

You have to clean them all up. And let’s face it, bikes are very bulky and needs a pretty big space inside the home. These are some reasons why most people would prefer outdoor bike storage.

Storing your bikes outside can pretty much save a lot of space. There are various kinds of outdoor bike storage. You can either use a bike rack, wall-mounted racks and storage sheds. Bike racks are typically found on public establishments. It comes in a number of styles. It can be an inverted U rack which is mainly used for storing just one bike.

It can also be a serpentine or wave rack. This kind of rack is an upgraded version of the inverted U-shaped rack which allows you to store multiple racks. There are also decorative bike racks which is very visually appealing. On the other hand, you can simply use a wall-mounted rack. This keeps the bike off the floor which saves up more space. However, the safest way to store your bike outdoors is building a storage shed. Storage sheds keep your bikes safe from the weather, as well as from theft.
