DIY wall bike hanger made from old bike parts

A bike can occupy useful floor space and it’s why we usually store our bikes on the walls. Wall bike hangers are very popular because they offer a functional and practical storage solution. Also, they offer lots of options. If you want something original and unique, you could try to make a bike hanger from old bike parts.

It’s easy if you have an old bike. You could also buy the parts secondhand. Let’s see what you need for this project. You need to find one set of drop styled handle bars, one quill stem that fits the handle bars, an old tire, a threaded piece of galvanized steel pipe for the stem, a wall flange that fits the pipe, a tape measure, a drill, two wood screws and a level. The first thing you need to do is to put the handle bars into the stem.

Then attach the pipe to the wall flange and insert the quill into the pipe. Hang everything on the wall using wood screws. First determine how high you want your bike to be stored and use a tape measure for that. Then simply attach the hanger to the wall and you’re done. It’s very simple and it’s a project that can be done in a few minutes. Also, the materials you need are not expensive and you might even have them in your home.{found on kylethewilson}.
