Wider slots will still securely hold narrow tires without fault. All slots are unpainted stainless steel. 5/32 drill bit, lag screws and washers included with order.

Great for road bikes and hybrids. Accepts tires up to 35 mm (or 1.3 inches)

10" Riser

Take advantage of our patented tangle-free handlebar system by adding a riser set to every other slot. A riser elevates a slot, allowing you to put it and avoid handlebar conflicts. Add a riser to every other slot, starting with the second slot. All risers are unpainted stainless steel. Includes hardware.

Made in America

The only thing “off shore” about our manufacturing location is the breeze. Peak Racks are designed and built on California’s Central Coast, using quality recycled domestic steel and premium powder coats for long-lasting quality. That lets us make sure every rack meets our quality standards and its production supports our community.

Environmentally Kind

We are conscious of our carbon footprint. We do things like reduce fuel use with bulk shipping of commercial products and bike to work every day. We use 95% recycled domestic steel, and recycle all scrap metal. Our racks conserve valuable resources by lasting a really, really, long time. Buy them once, use them for generations.

Stellar Customer Service

At Peak Racks, we like to ride bikes. We want people to ride, and we want every aspect of riding to be as pleasurable as possible. We encourage and support cycling by building the very best bike parking racks available. We stand behind them with stellar customer service, innovative design, and conscientious floorplan layout.

“Over spring break 2009, half of the old racks in the Campbell Hall bike parking lot were replaced with new Peak Racks. The rest of the old racks were over summer 2009. Peak Racks, which are manufactured locally in San Luis Obispo, allow for higher density bike parking than traditional bike racks. The complete rack retrofit increased the lot’s parking capacity.”

"The rack turned out great! I used the template initially, but realized that I wouldn't be able to fit all 8 bikes in the length it would take at the 30 degree angle and 24 inch spacing that the template has. So I measured and drilled at about 19.5 inch spacing and angled the rack at about 45 degrees. It is still enough of an angle to keep the bikes from interfering with each other and was able to fit in my space really well. I see that as a big benefit to the at home kit, in that I was able to adjust it to fit my space perfectly. And the wide slots work fine with my 2.4 inch tires, I don't feel like they are too loose, so I'm happy with that suggestion too."

“These bicycle racks are great for high density parking. The angled and single slot double sided bike racks also work great to fill in tight areas like next to building or inside a garage or metal building.”

“Specifically designed for space efficiency, Peak Racks Campus Racks feature One Side Loading with a Vertical Stagger to eliminate handle bar tangles. The vertical stagger also allows each slot in the rack to be used simultaneously. Peak Racks bike racks offer superior security by using Individual Locking Bars, which allow the frame and wheel of each bike to be individually locked with a U-lock, or cable lock.”

Finally, a Bike Rack as Unique as You.

With our patent pending design, Peak Racks BYO will give you the layout and configuration that fits your space and the bikes that park there. Bikes on one side or both. Straight or angled racks. Long narrow rows or compact blocks of bikes. Because when your bikes fit right, your space works right.

What Makes Our Racks Rock?

Free Standing and Sturdy

Non-slip pads allow placement inside without bolting into place. Your BYO rack stays where you put it... until you put it somewhere else!

Optional Vertical Riser

The BYO Slot Riser optional accessory increases space-efficiency and lets you rack bikes closer than ever before. The resulting vertical stagger prevents handlebar tangles.

A Diamond for Every Size

Our patent pending diamond wheel holder firmly holds a wide range of tire sizes. Secure, no-tweak support keeps wheel aligned and supported, front to back.

Frequently Asked Questions

It's our goal to make building the perfect bike rack as easy as possible for our customers. To help answer your questions upfront, here are some of our most asked questions about the Peak Racks BYO rack. Not finding what you are looking for? Let us know and a representative will get back to you personally.

We use the term “Wall Space” when determining how much space a rack requires but the racks do not have to be placed against a wall. See Peak Racks Standard Design Table (PDF) for details of our standard design recommendations, but here is a rule of thumb:

  • Straight Racks with all bikes parked forward will accommodate on average 1 bike for every 18 inches of wall space. Bikes will stick out from the wall about 6 feet.
  • Angled Racks with all bikes parked at 30 degrees will accommodate on average 1 bike for every 30 inches of wall space. Bikes will stick out from the wall about 3 feet.

The sidewall of the tire should have the information but sometimes it is confusing because there are a few different identifying systems. Some are metric and some are English units. See BikeTireSizes.com for tire size info or measure the width the best you can.

Yes you could, but ideally you don’t want the tire to touch the lumber when the bike is in the slot. Try to keep 15-16 inches between boards when bolting the slots. Also you should try to keep the tire off the ground. Ideally you would want to space the slot 1 or more inches off the ground.

Yes, the slots are lightweight and a complete rack can be easily moved. Racks can be stowed in narrow places by just loosening the screws and bringing the wood bases together.

Most likely yes. Max tire width is 3.1 inches. Many commuter E-bikes use tires less than 2.4 inches wide.

Yes! That is one of the objectives of the Peak Racks BYO….get the kids involved and let them make decisions, do the work, and make mistakes. It doesn’t have to be perfect. They can customize it and take ownership.
