It is fairly simple to hang the bikes once the mount is installed, however a second set of hands is helpful when initially attaching the Cycloc Hero to the wall. We could have mounted 3 bikes on top of each other in this tall space, but decided to keep them within arms reach instead. The Ikea shelf under the TV helps store bike shoes, helmets, gear and various electronics. The Wahoo Kickr has been my go to trainer for about a year now and it fits in well in the new space.

We first decided where we wanted to have the lower bike, then we marked the spot where the pedal mount goes and then installed it. Once we had that pedal mount in place we did each wheel one at the time to avoid mistakes. We also decided to use better drywall anchors than the ones supplied by Cycloc.

This closeup shows how the bike is held in place, and the mounting hardware is neatly hidden behind cover plates. But note that Cycloc makes it very clear that Speedplay pedals do not work with this system.

I also decided to keep each bike in a dedicated spot to avoid any compatibility issues. I can easily swap out the Cervelo S5 and the Canyon Aeroad CF SLX as they have a similar wheel base, bb height and crank length. But my wife's bikes can't hang in any of those spots.

Mountain bikes work just the same and, unlike various other wall mounts, the extra width of the bars doesn't seem to be a problem.

As I said earlier, these wheel mounts are mostly to keep the walls free from tire marks.

The Dyson fan helps with a breeze, but this room is on a Mitsubishi Mini Split and the temperature can be adjusted without affecting any other room in the house. Behind the Dyson is the AlienWare Alpha computer that runs Zwift. When required, the Dyson fan can sit on the Ikea shelf.

The Apple TV allows for a variety of things to be streamed while riding the bike or doing yoga or TRX.

This is the Cycloc Hero box. It is a British brand and the designer is Andrew Lang. In the US this mount retails for $40 to $50.
