At every product is thoroughly tested for as long as it takes to get a proper insight into how well it works. Our reviewers are experienced cyclists that we trust to be objective. While we strive to ensure that opinions expressed are backed up by facts, reviews are by their nature an informed opinion, not a definitive verdict. We don't intentionally try to break anything (except locks) but we do try to look for weak points in any design. The overall score is not just an average of the other scores: it reflects both a product's function and value – with value determined by how a product compares with items of similar spec, quality, and price.

The Delta Bike Hook Hinged takes up less space and is often more convenient than the common fixed types. It is easy to load and has enough space for everything from deep carbon road wheels to wide mountain bike tyres.

The design of the Delta is very similar to many others, with a metal plate that is secured to the wall and a hook to hold the front wheel and allow the bike to rest in a vertical position on the wall.

I found it was simple to install on the wall I used, which was a simple internal chipboard panel on a stud frame. The screws provided are designed to screw into the stud section of the wall, but if you have any form of plasterboard or a solid wall, additional fixings may be needed.

The metal panel that attaches is held in place by two screws, and the wheel hook is coated in rubber to protect the wheel. There is also a small section of metal with a 90-degree bend which is for the rear wheel to rest against – the bend prevents it from moving when the rack is twisted.

The rack has a maximum load of 18kg (40lb), which is fine for just about all road and mountain bikes, though most e-bikes will be above this weight limit.

There is plenty of space to slot in large volume mountain bike tyres, while the hook happily takes deep carbon wheels too – the largest I tested being 64mm.

The metal plate to prevent the rear tyre touching the wall I found less versatile, as it's too narrow for mountain bike wheels, and once fixed it's good for only a small variation in wheelbases.

The hinge is what makes this Delta Bike Hook different to most, and I was really surprised how effective this small detail is. The bike folds away to give more space in your room, while you can still use the wall for storing other things – you just hinge the bike out of the way when you need to access them.

The action is smooth and, even with a heavy bike on the hook, it is very easy to move, taking no effort. The downside is it often wants to swing out to 90 degrees under the weight of a bike; some kind of friction lock, to hold the bike at your chosen angle, would only improve this hook.

The Delta hook is a very similar design to the Feedback Sports Velo Hinge, but while the Delta is £3 cheaper, the Feedback version swings both ways – the Delta only goes one way.


Fixed hooks are cheaper and there are many out there – such as the BBB ParkingLot at £14.95 or the Tortec Universal Storage Hook at £19.99 (both 2021 prices) – but obviously you're stuck with the bike sticking out at 90 degrees.

If you're limited on space, the Delta Bike Hook Hinged is very effective fits just about any bike you might have – so long, that is, as it's not a downhill monster or ebike at 18kg plus. It is simple, neat and works well.

Clear exposed wall.  In a shed?  Ah, the luxury...!

The article list a couple of non hinged alternatives at £15 and £20 and yet failed to mention the planet X versions which are currently £1 each in a pack of 3

I am trying to remember if I have ever seen anything from PX mentioned here, yet regular see links and reviews to Decathlon and Merlin products. No doubt its down to advertising income and the likes.

Maybe it's just me, but if I've got a bike that cost me £1k, I'd rather spend £15 as opposed to £1 on the piece of metal it's hanging off the wall on. Can't imagine what the steel quality is like on a £1 hangar. I could be wrong but I'm very happy to pay slightly more for perceived peace of mind.

I actually have the BBB parking lot at £15 and it does look to have a much better design and higher quality foam that the wheel rests against.

Oh and the Planet X ones don't come with wall fixings. I know that doesn't make up the whole difference but is something.

My bike was £3500 new and it very happily hangs on a couple of hooks from B&Q that cost £1.99 and are rated for 18kg each - you don't need an amazing quality of steel to support a 7kg weight.

the extra 14$ you paid is for profit. My 5000$ bike is held up by a 1$ little red hook and my 100$ is also held up by a 1$ little red hook so is my 1000$ bike. Been working for years.

Those PlanetX ones are built like BSHs.  I have several round my garage - not for bikes, but for heavy stuff like ladders.  Highly recommended.
