Steadyrack was created to solve a problem the founder David Steadman had at home. He couldn’t get his car into the garage because the family bikes were in the way. The only option was a hook on a wall or the floor racks and hooks were too hard for his family to use. He decided that there has to be a way to get bikes hanging on a wall without the user having to try to juggle them onto some kind of hook. 5 years, countless hours and numerous prototypes later the Steadyrack was perfected.
Steadyrack’s unique patented design means loading and unloading your bikes could not be easier no need to juggle the bike onto a hook, simply balance the bike on the rear wheel and push forward to load and pull back to unload and combined with the innovative pivoting feature the racks use much less valuable space. Steadyrack bike racks attach to any vertical surface (walls, posts, columns, frames) Once the bike is loaded the rack can be swivelled from one side to the other almost 180 degrees which means you can layer or overlap bikes and store more bikes in less space and they are still easier to use than any other wall mount rack.
Steadyracks unique patented design has revolutionised bike storage, your bikes are easy to load and unload and you save heaps of space, your bikes fit snugly in the rack and are protected, the racks fold away when not in use, look great and are built to last.

It’s 1988. Bicycle enthusiast Michael Eidson, is competing in a 100-mile race in the grueling summer heat of Wichita Falls, Texas. Water is vital to surviving the race, and there are few places to refill a water bottle. Eidson, an emergency medical technician by trade, decides to fill an IV bag with water and slip it into a white tube sock. Yes, a tube sock. Then he stuffs the contraption into the back of his bike jersey, throws the thin hose over his shoulder and clamps it with a clothespin. Hands-free hydration is born. And Eidson is able to drink as he pedals…while the other racers laugh and fiddle with their water bottles.
