Cubical Bike Mount

I give you the Cubical Bike Mount. Cubicals don't have a lot of real estate. Mine not being the exception, I had zero floor space available. The Cubical Bike Mount takes the bike off the ground and raises it high enough out of the way; you can get some work done.

The secret is a t-handle allen wrench through the bike pedal resting on top of the wall. This fixes the bike to the wall, requiring very little strength to maintain. The bulk of the weight is distributed between the bike pedal and tires.

T-Handle Allen Wrench

This solution was not without its challenges. I had two failed attempts. First attempt reduced the bike footprint mounting the bike vertically. This did not reduced it enough. Second attempt was similar to the finial design but used a tire mount with a single bolt. This was problematic as cubical walls are flimsy particle board covered in cloth. The tire mounts flexed under the weight of the bike. Two bolts was the answer.
