Easy to assemble and designed specifically with the cyclist in mind, a bike locker such as those available from Apartment B are a fantastic storage solution for when storing bikes in your house just isn’t viable due to space, or there’s disagreement in the family over bicycles place inside the home. Available in a vertical, horizontal and also diagonally shaped options, you’ll likely be surprised at how easy it is to find a place, inside or outside the home that caters for a bike locker.
Features to look for include; a multipoint locking system (three or more) to ensure your ride is safe from thieving hands and a weatherproof design for external applications, the ability to store multiple bikes comfortably if required and hooks on the interior to hang things like helmets shoes and other cycling paraphernalia. Given the larger size of a bike locker, or if you’re not too handy on the tools, it’s also helpful to look for options that offer in-home set-up included within the purchase price.
