Tips for storing your Bastille at home: no need for a wall mount

When it comes to making the daily use of your bike as smooth as possible, choosing storage becomes an important step. It leads us to rethink its location. Once relegated to garages, bicycles are now finding a place inside the home. While wall mounts are commonly used, they may not always be suitable. The Bastille bike stands out by offering a clever and stylish alternative.

The evolution of bicycle storage

Previously relegated to garages, bicycles are now finding a place inside the home. By becoming a real decorative object, the bicycle reinvents itself and takes over entrances and living rooms to combine security against theft and careful aesthetics. Whether hanging on a wall rack or folded up in your entryway, the urban bike is proudly displayed in your interior.

The advantages of storing your bike indoors

Cycling is no longer just a means of transport, but a true way of life. Storing your bike indoors, far from being trivial, becomes a thoughtful choice to preserve its quality and safety.
