Space is valuable, and hardware-store hooks not only suffer from utilitarian appearance, they force bicycles perpendicular to the wall. The Velo Hinge from Feedback Sports, on the other hand, allows the hook to pivot, so bicycles take up less floor space.
Just as appealing as compact storage, these quality powder-coated steel hooks collapse and are hidden when not in use -- which means a clean aesthetic that's suitable for studios or apartments. The Velo Hinge comes assembled for left sided pivoting, but can be switched for use to the right. Feedback Sports rates the Velo Hinge at 50 pounds, so everything short of electric-assist bicycles can hang out.
The Feedback Sports Velo Hinge measures 7.25 x 3.5 x 0.63in folded.
