About this deal

A Clug can accommodate pretty much all adult wheelbases – a very small person's time trial bike paired with a strapping six-plus-footer partner's extra-large 700C audax machine will be fine, as Clug states a 'working range' of up to 8ft.

Hornit Clug Bike Rack review - MBR

printers are for prototyping and very complex pieces but they will never be as fast at manufacturing as injection moulding or forging and by their nature can't produce smooth surfaces. We designed CLUG to be a great fit with just about every bike tyre out there. We sell five versions of the CLUG - one to fit standard road bike tyres betweenJust thought on use with mudguards. Would using one of these on the front whel and also one on the rear wheel holding the bike slightly off the ground work? I don't know if it would hold but just a thought. One very minor gripe is the provision of Phillips screws rather than Pozidriv, although this is perhaps intentional, to prevent over-torquing the screws when installing. In use

Review: Hornit Clug | road.cc

Yes lots of us do have bikes for seasons, it's pretty normal/de rigeur. N+1 and all that. As for ride my damn bike more? I've covered just short of 2,000 miles this year, and that's been curtailed because of injury and illness. What's wrong with a hook, you say? The problem with ceiling hooks is that they need to go into something as well, and unless they are supporting the entire weight of the bike they won't hold the wheel solidly, so bikes can swing around. With the rear wheel on the floor, the Clug is only bearing a bike load of a few hundred grams to keep it vertical/horizontal. The removal transient force approximates the weight of hanging a 7kg bike from a ceiling-mounted Clug. In other words, you can insert a 1-2kg wheel complete with tyre into a clug and it will stay put indefinitely – a good solution for storing a turbo wheel, or a spare set for different uses, like gravel riding or Sunday best. My only real gripe is that if you want to store your bikes vertically you cannot have a full rear mudguard fitted. This isn't a massive problem with my road bike, but my single-speed clunker (used to) live with the mudguards on since there was never any reason not to - until the clug.It can also double as a coathook, bag hook, for a rake, electrical cords... the list is pretty much endless. We designed the CLUG PRO to be a great fit with just about every bike tyre out there. With five sizes to choose from (identical to the original CLUG), the CLUG PRO range is compatible with tyres between 23-81mm (1-3.2').

I very rarely comment, but this, sorry, 4.5 stars for something that will only hold a bike as long as it's tyre is the correct size, and inflated, and costs twice or more than equivalents? The Clug Pro is very minimal, even claiming a drop in weight over the standard version, though even as an ardent weight weenie I cannot think why lighter would be an important factor here. Easy to fit Once installed, the Clug can be removed easily and relocated in a minute – the insert covering the screws pops out and away you go. Tight spaces Cons: Each size is specific to a range of tyre widths, possible issue with deflating tyres over time, price

I'd say the Clug is the best solution I've tried for keeping bikes in tight spaces. Other solutions often need the bike lifting vertically or sideways to get a hook or arm of some sort engaged, whereas your bike goes straight in-out of the Clug. For those living in flats or working in offices with scarce space for bike storage, Clugs can be scattered about the place with abandon, ready for any and all bikes to store. I'd say a Clug would make for a handy bike-washing solution, if you are in an apartment situation and need an inconspicuous, low-cost and relatively theft-proof way to hold your bike vertical while washing. And yes some of us do have seasonal bikes and did find them one day all scatered across the garage because the commute bike had a puncture so released itself overnight

I have three of these. Two mountain bike size and one road bike size. I can only add - make sure you have a good wall to attach it to, mine is a crunmbling old mess, and one of the units just pulled itslef out of the wall when I tugged on the bike to release it. Otherwise, cheap functionally perfect.

While it might be true to have it completely vertical, you would be able to have the bike at an angle. The exact angle depends on the mudguard and how long they are. One thing to note: the size of the Clug refers to actual tyre size, not simply stated tyre size, so it's important to actually measure yours as this can vary greatly depending on the width of the rim and the brand of the tyre.
