Storing a bike upright is one of the best ways to save space when parking it in any place around the house. And while there are many products that let you do just that, the ZicTech Z adds a whole lot more into the mix.
Unlike most upright bicycle storage solutions, the stand doesn’t require you to lift up the whole weight of your two-wheeled ride in order to park. That way, even the puniest weaklings can easily park their bikes without putting in a lot of effort – just a push here, a pull there, and you’re set.
To park on the ZicTech Z, simply guide the bike’s rear wheel into the stand, lean the bike backwards to stand it, and secure the whole thing with the integrated strap. Done. Unlike hanging vertical solutions, it doesn’t put any pressure on the spokes nor does it touch any part of the derailleur, ensuring it won’t damage the ride even through repeated use. It also doesn’t require any installation, so you can store the bike in the garage one day, the backyard another, and the living room the next using the exact same contraption.
Aside from holding the bike upright, the stand can also park the bike horizontally, as well as serve as a raiser block for using the bike as an elliptical. Other features include suction cups at the base that keep it from sliding, integrated compartments for tool storage, and dimensions of 16 x 17.25 x 18.5 inches (h x w x d). It can handle bikes with tires between 12 to 29 inches in diameter and up to 2.5 inches in width.
Available now, the ZicTech Z is priced at $99.95.
