I first came across the Feedback Sports Velo Wall Post at Interbike. Initially I thought it was a wall mounted repair stand, and I wanted one — as soon as I had a place for one at least.
Technically, the Velo Wall Post is a wall mounted storage solution. Bolt it to the wall (to any standard wall stud) and hang your bike on it by the saddle. That said, it could also totally work awesome as a second backup repair stand for those quick derailleur adjustments where you just want your back wheel off the ground. I can think of a half dozen repairs it’s suitable for, but sadly, my new garage is sadly too small to fit one.
On the upside, it works totally awesome in its intended use as a bike rack. It folds up to move out of the way when not in use, and features a 50lb. load capacity. We’re also big fans of the aesthetic. Many of the dual hook style wall mounted racks work adequately with hardtails and road bikes, but we have a lot of bikes that come in a variety of forms, and the Velo Wall Post works great for all of them.
Installing the Velo Wall Post is easy enough; the hardest part is finding the stud. (I borrowed a stud finder from a co-worker as we just have the cheapie one) I predrilled my holes and ran the screws in with my impact driver and that was it. That said, I may remount mine a bit higher up off the ground.
The beam is long enough to suspend even my enduro rig with it’s 30″ bars without coming into contact with the wall. There’s plenty of usable space on the post to mount other items like wheels, packs or helmets, making it uber useful. It has a 3 year warranty and does exactly as intended while looking great doing it.
