Metal closet brackets can be used or reused to make a perfect rack for your bike. Attach the brackets to studs 16” apart at the desired height (approximately 4’-5’ from the floor) using drywall screws, and hang the bicycle from the closet rod holder.

To keep from scratching your bike, pad the bracket with foam weather stripping or slide a section of bike inner tube over it. Mount a 10” wide shelf on the closet bracket behind the bike rack to store a helmet and other bike gear.
