How To Use A Two-Tier Bike Rack

July 07, 2021

In the United Kingdom, two-tier bike racks are becoming more widespread. It is a high-density parking bicycle rack, originally from the Netherlands, that can quadruple in capacity.

The gas strut in the Two-Tier Bike Rack – With Gas Strut makes raising and utilising the rack safe and straightforward. This instruction manual is not applicable if you’re using a rack without a gas-assisted strut.

Step 1 – Remove the parking tray from the upper level

Using the rubber grips, pull the upper layer of the rack out. After that, lower the rack. The parking tray will be held in place by the gas strut.

Step2 – Place the front wheel of the bicycle on the rack

Place your bike’s front wheel on the rack next. It’s not necessary to raise the complete bicycle; only place your front wheel on the tray.

Step 3 – Place your bicycle on the rack

You can use the bike’s momentum to put the bike onto the rack with the front wheel in the rack’s channel. You shouldn’t have to raise the bike; instead, you should be able to push and slide it into place.

Make sure that the front and rear wheels are securely seated within the front and back wheel stoppers.

Step 4 – Return the upper tier to its original position

The gas strut will hold the weight of the bicycle with soft-touch rubber grips. This will eliminate the possibility of the rack falling on you and making lifting simple.

Lift the bike until it is horizontal, and the rack will return to its original position.

Step 5 – Place the tray in its proper position by pushing it inwards

You can then push the rack back to its original position with your bike on it.

Why should you choose the BDS Two Tier Bike Rack?

The BDS Two Tier Bike Rack is a ground-breaking and user-friendly cycle parking solution. It allows you to store twice as many bikes in the same area and space as a regular bike rack. 

The specialised and unique features of the space-saving and cost-effective “Two Tier Bike Rack” has resulted in an increasing demand for it, particularly in high-density places such as train stations, retail malls, schools, parking lots, and offices.

All sorts of bicycles, including mountain bikes and road bikes, can be D-locked to the Two-Tier Bike Rack for extra security. Wheel channels properly support the bike, and the rear wheel is kept stable by a gutter, which allows the bicycle to lock firmly into position.

The bottom bike rack includes a sloping wheel channel, which eliminates the need for the user to bend between levels, making the two-tier cycle rack system simple and easy to use for people of all ages. Because the cycle stands are so tiny, with a centre to centre distance of only 375mm, this rack is excellent for conserving space.
