Does the Bike Nook™ work with children’s bikes as well?
Yes. The Bike Nook™ is designed to work with all types of bikes and sizes including mountain bikes, road bikes, racers, kids’ bikes, beach bikes and more. It can fit bikes with a 10 inches (25cm) wheel diameter or bigger. Kids' bikes with wheel size 10in (25cm) to 16in (41cm) need to be secured on the V Slot by the handlebars holder. For detailed instructions on how different size bikes are to be secured onto the Bike Nook™ unit, please refer to the Assembly Instructions Manual.
Can the Bike Nook store an E-Bike?
E-Bikes are fitted with a battery. Depending on where the battery is positioned on the E-Bike, the weight of the battery can cause instability when attempting to store the E-Bike on the Bike Nook™. For this reason, the Bike Nook™ is not suitable for storing E-Bikes.
What size of tire does the Bike Nook™ hold?
The width of “V” Track is 2.5 inches (6.35 cm) and should be capable of holding tires with various widths, from the smallest road tire to a large beach or fat boy tire.
Will the Bike Nook™ work if the bicycle is attached with:
- a parcel rack?
- a half mud guard?
- a full mud guard?
General: For the bike to be stored in a stable position, one needs 3 points for gripping the bike, see below.
- Parcel rack - One of the gripping points (i.e. “V” of the Upright) cannot be engaged.
- Half mudguard - The protruded section will prevent the wheel from engaging with the “V” in the Upright.
- Full mudguard - Although the guard can fit into the “V” of the Track, the connection of the mudguard to the bike is too flimsy, leading to instability when trying to store the bike.
