About

We love bikes at Steadyrack and got to thinking about how hard it is to store our bikes simply and easily and how difficult it is to charge all of our bike accessories. 

We needed a solution that anyone could use safely and easily no matter how young or old big or small! So we set about designing the worlds best bike rack.  After exhaustive testing and countless hours on the computer we created the Steadyrack Fender Rack with the Steadyrack multi port USB hub or STUB.

So what is it that makes Steadyrack Fender Rack so much better than any other racks. 

No Lifting - Look how easy it is to load and unload your bike, roll it in and roll it out, the rack guides your bike into it safely no need to lift the bike up and no risk of damaging your walls.

Park your bikes much closer together and its still easy to use. Thanks to the unique pivoting action - You can overlap multiple bikes and still access any bike with ease using the unique pivoting design.

Reclaim your garage or spare room or even save your marriage!

Strong and Robust - A Steadyrack bike rack is built from zinc plated steel to last a lifetime.

Folds Away - Steadyrack's arms fold up into a compact great looking rack when you are not using it. Great for your hallway, apartment, garage or even boardroom

Safe and Snug Fit- No chance of accidentally knocking your bike out of the Steadyrack. Your bike rests on the front tire when its in the rack and is cradled in the lower arm snugly and securely.

Easy to Install - Steadyracks come with all the fixings and instructions you need in the box. They can be fixed to masonry walls, brick walls, timber frame or steel frame walls and even to a freestanding post.

Save your wheels - Now you don't need to hang your bike by the wheel rim anymore. The tires act as cushions for the your bike and distributes weight evenly.

Steadyrack bike racks look great at home in your lounge room, in your garage or your office in fact anywhere you want to park or store your bikes. Even in trees if that's what you want to do.

Steadyrack Fender rack is designed to accommodate bikes with or without fenders.

Now you can hang your favourite electric bike with fenders right next to your town bike with mudguards, your prized road bike and your weekend warrior MTB all in the same great looking rack.

Charge up to 3 accessories at once with the Steadyrack multi port USB dock 

THE STUB

  • How often have you got half way through a ride and the battery goes flat on your computer or lights?

    What a pain!

    We had the same experience so we thought why not incorporate a USB charging dock into a bike rack and the Steadyrack USB hub or STUB was born. 

    Safely store any bike and charge your accessories.
    Safely store any bike and charge your accessories.

    STUB simply clips into the top of your existing Steadyrack bike rack replacing the removable basic plastic cover. 

    Neat Moulded Plastic Design - Your STUB has a plastic tray moulded into the top so you can place your device in the tray while its charging or you can leave it on your bike. 

    3 USB Ports - The STUB has 3 USB ports so you can plug up to 3 devices into it at once and charge all 3 at the same time. 

    Our very first STUB produced on a 3D printer and exhaustively tested by the team at Atamo Electrical Engineering in Perth WA

    LED Indicators - Each port has a green LED indicator light. When it's on your device is charging, when it's off it is charged. 

    USB Leads - No need to remove your device from your bike anymore. Each STUB comes with 3 USB to mini USB leads. There are 2 x 1.8m or 6ft long leads and one shorter lead. You can charge your device while it's still on the bike.

    Power Pack - Your new STUB will also come with its own universal multi pin power pack which will suit most types of sockets and a lead to connect your  STUB to the power pack. 

    Safe and secure.

    Lock your bike to your Steadyrack with any conventional bike lock.

    Tyre size.

    The Steadyrack Fender Rack will accommodate a huge range of bike tyres. From kids 20' to MTB 29'ers. The rack is your one stop storage spot.

    What are people are saying about Steadyrack on line                                                                                                                                                      "The idea for this product is sheer genius: a rack that allows you to hang your bike on the wall and pivot it out of the way so that it takes up less room.”                                                                                                                                                                                                        "Finally, a rack that does as advertised and even my 10 year old is able and willing to use it.”                                                                                                                                                                                                "It's much easier to use than a rack where you have to lift the bike horizontally to hang it up on the wall. I'm a pretty small woman without a lot of upper body strength, so easy it's great!"                                                                                                                                                      "Best investment in a long time. Very easy for my wife to get her own bike on and off. I highly recommend these bike racks!”                                                                                                                                         "Easy to install, works great, keeps my road bike accessible, but out of the way in my garage. Love this product!"

Risks and challenges

Our distribution facility is already up and running and we are familiar with their operation so we are comfortable in their efficiency and reliability.

Rigorous electrical testing will need to be conducted to ensure our components complies with world standards and certification requirements.

Packaging design alterations to existing packaging will be required to accommodate the new rack and usb hub in addition to instruction manuals.

Extensive load testing on the Fender rack saddle will be preformed to ensure optimum plastic material is selected and utilised.
