The new WallRide and WallRide+ are designed to hold the heaviest bikes, including portly e-bikes, and the heavy-duty steel construction should make bike thieves look for easier targets.

RockyMounts WallRide+ Review

It's no secret that bike thefts have been on the ride for the last 24-months. RockyMounts' aim in entering the bike storage market was to build something that could store bikes securely with a high level of theft deterrence.

“With the value of bicycles at an all-time high, thieves are targeting bicycles in garages, and locking your bicycle inside is now a necessary evil. After we read the hundredth story about a rider waking up to an empty garage, we started working on the WallRIde+ to provide both commercial-level quality and security. There are some good home storage solutions available, but none that have the level of theft deterrence in the WallRide+” said RockyMounts owner, Bobby Noyes.

As e-bikes get more popular, there's also a need for bike storage systems that can hold heavier bikes. The WallRide is up for the challenge with a maximum weight limit of 100lb/45kg.

RockyMounts offers the WallRide in two versions and two finishes. The standard WallRide is the most affordable at $39.99. The WallRide+ (tested here) retails for $99.99 and includes a 10mm-thick chain encased in a nylon sleeve that resembles Kryptonite's New York Chain. Both models come in a black, powder-coated finish as well as a more expensive bead-blasted stainless steel (SS) finish.

I mounted the WallRide+ in my garage. Installation is straightforward. RockyMounts includes sturdy wall anchors. In most cases, the strength of the studs or concrete will determine the weight capacity of the WallRide system.

The ball bearings included with the mounting kit can be pressed or hammered into the lag bolt heads, making removal via Allen keys nearly impossible.

Compared to the $1.98 rubber-coated Home Depot hooks many of us to store our bikes, the WallRide system is significantly more expensive. It's also more resistant to theft and more durable. I found it much easier to hang wheels on RockyMounts' TPU-coated arm and, unlike the two-dozen cheap rubberized hooks that adorn the walls of my garage, the TPU material won't split, exposing the steel underneath, which can scratch expensive carbon rims.

Currently, the WallRide's arm is designed to work with everything from road rims to wide mountain bike rims, but it won't clear 100mm-wide fat bike rims. It's likely we'll see an optional fat bike upgrade down the road.

RockyMounts WallRide+ Verdict
The WallRide and WallRide+ systems are well-built and provide a robust buy-and-be-done storage solution. The steel mounting bracket and 10mm-thick square-link chain provide a high level of theft deterrence. In my opinion, the three-foot chain included with the WallRide+ is a nice option if you're starting from scratch. If you already have a sturdy U-lock or chain lock and are looking to save some money it's not worth the upgrade over the standard WallRide.
