Mailbag: How To Store Bikes At Home - Dutchies & Mixtes
Do you have any recommendations for a wall mount that can hang a dutchie-style bike horizontally? Finding something functional and pretty is proving more challenging than anticipated ☺

I feel your pain. Bike storage is an issue I struggle with every single day. Cramming seven bikes into a three-bedroom San Francisco apartment is an awkward game of 3D Tetris where the winner gets the most bruises.
There are a lot of stylish wall-mounts for bikes with straight top-tubes. But you're right. Options for step-through bikes, Dutch style bikes, Grandma bikes, and mixtes are almost non-existent.
Fortunately I found this clever bike shelf that doesn't depend on a top-tube.
Different from the rest, The Bike All relies on the single component that all bikes share…a saddle (bike seat)! As the name implies we also want to help you with all that comes with a pleasant ride.
Storage for your helmet, messenger bag and the shelf top has a thoughtfully designed receptacle for your cell phone/MP3 charger cord.
Buy online via Etsy. The wooden Bike All shelf is handmade in Colorado. Available in Walnut or Ash.
