You might think that's
stating the obvious, but you really must test out other designs
to fully appreciate how Vertirack™ II approaches these two critical
points. I've dealt with them all and nothing compares to the
design, convenience, and durability of the Vertirack II.
Hanging The number one problem with other
designs is their lack of materials. Golly gee, they're cheaper! But the
hook gets placed really close to the wall, or the hanging point
and the locking point are all in one. The result is a bike that
is unnecessarily tipsy and difficult to hang. The most convenient
and stable point to hang a bike is where Vertirack II accomplishes it.
Locking Here again, others skimp on the
locking point and expect you to have some '70s-era cable or chain.
Bike riders should be able to quickly lock the
frame of their bike and one wheel with a modern lock
to the locking point. The locking point needs to be
substantial and solid. No hollow tube, thanks.
When you are short on space but have plenty of empty wall,
then the Vertirack II may be just the ticket. They are great for
a public parking garage, a utility closet at work, or an
underutilized cement wall.
A wall-mounted rack boils down to two essential elements:
Hanging. How and where the bike hangs.
Locking. The composition and position of the locking point.
Vertical stagger allows best density.
Sheetrock walls generally need plywood backing.
Vertirack II likes concrete walls.
Vertirack II has convenient frame locking point for u-locks and other similar locks.
