Feedback Sports RAKK Integrated Bicycle Display System
Leaning your bike against the garage wall is fine for that old "mountain" bike you used to zip around campus in college. But your new 17-pound, carbon fiber thoroughbred is another story. To protect your bike from the damage caused by accidental falls, you need the Feedback Sports Rakk Bicycle Stand.
The Rakk's patented design holds either the front or rear wheel of your bike without scratching the spokes or rim. Thanks to an innovative spring-loaded arm that grasps the wheel and a three-point contact system to hold it in place, the Rakk accommodates road tires as narrow as 20mm and mountain bike tires up to 2.4" wide -- so it works with all types of bikes.
The Rakk's hands-free design couldn't be easier to use: simply roll the bike into the wheel slot for easy storage or display. You can even connect several stands together to hold multiple bikes. And when not in use, the Rakk's arm folds down for easy storage in the corner or on a shelf.
The Feedback Sports Rakk Bicycle Stand comes in Black, Silver, and White and accommodates most road and mountain bikes. It comes with clips for modular use.
Talk shop with all the gear freaks out there: ask 'em questions, upload/browse photos, and give your 2¢.
Excellent Bike Stand

I've had my silver (really more like gray - but who cares) RAKK Integrated Bicycle Display System for three weeks and I'm loving it! Works as advertised on my Trek PURE Sport bike, folds flat and stores out of the way. Best value for your money. I did not want a rack that could rest against the bike spokes and the RAKK doesn't. Just roll the rear wheel into the trough and the RAKK grips the tire and wheel rim and the vertical support brackets the tire. Very slick.
ONE WORD - GREAT!

AWESOME rack. I have a Trek Mountain bike, fits perfect! I bought a rack at the local bike store, but the bike leaned on it, and it touched the spokes which I didn't like. I read all the positive reviews, and they're exactly right. This rack is PERFECT, back your bike into the rack, and it holds it with no issues! Also, Realcyclist rocks, got the rack in two days! Great service!!!

Write your question here...Can the RAKK be used to support the front tire? I have an Electra Cruiser with a rear finder that is 12" off the ground, which is not enough clearance to fit into the wheel
July 18, 2011
Yes, you just put it in backwards. I do it all the time as it's convenient to do when changing out wheels so the bike doesn't start dancing around on you when you change out the rear.

Good bike rack
August 24, 2009
Good rack. I bought 2 and they do a good job of holding my Time Trial bike straight up. Much better than the rack I was using before.
The unit is small and light, yet it provides good support for the bike. It's also foldable so you can travel with it easily.
Very happy with it.
Best Rack for the money
June 16, 2011
I was in working in the office when mine arrived at the house and my 13 year old Son who is on summer vacation took it out the box and it must have been easy to put together because when I got home my 2011 SL3 Specialized Tarmac was already resting on it. This Rack is alot stable in comparison to the old rack I use to have. I got mine on a 20 percent Discount. I want to compliment the Folks here at Real Cyclist/ Bonktown for their Excellent Customer Service which is second to none and the Quality Products they sell. This is one reason I keep coming back.

I would like to get this one for my husband for xmas. He has a Trek 4.5 Madonne. Would it work with that bike and also, does this work for storing the bike for a longer period of time as well (we are only at the location for half the year, the other half the bike would sit on/in the rack;
November 22, 2010
It works well and really can be used to hold a bike up all year without a problem as long as you don't have any little ones (kids) running around it sits in there safe and sound. The bikes comes out of the stand with no effort at all which is usually great but it also means that a 2 year old can easliy knock the bike over too.

linking your RAKK
April 21, 2011
Not sure if everyone knew but you can connect your RAKK to other RAKK's so you now can support all those cool bikes you have in your house, garage or bedroom!
Works great, keeps bike at the ready

This stand holds my MTB securely without it being anchored to it. It easily releases to take the bike out for a ride but still prevents falling over in the garage. While you could lean your bike against the wall, etc. this stand is a little more secure because a bump from the side or snagging the bar end on a shirt when walking by will not cause the bike to fall over with it (I have some experience with this). Looks great too and is easily portable. If you are worried about carbon fiber components getting banged by a potential walk-by snag causing the bike to fall over, this is the perfect stand at a nice price.
can this rakk hold a road bike? im wondering cause the wheel
can this rakk hold a road bike? im wondering cause the wheel might be to thin for the rakk to hold...

I have a 6K Specialized SL3 and my wheels are 700x22 NP trusting this rack to hold my black beauty. (:
February 15, 2012
Yes this rack holds a road bike very well. A few of us have these racks sitting beside our desks to hold our bikes once we ride to work. The wheel slot tapers down on the end to accommodate a road bike wheel.

never realized how much I needed it
March 26, 2009
Nicely designed, seems sturdy, holds the bike well, folds flat for storage (or to take with in the car. Helps keep a garage full of bikes organized.
Very Handy Storage Solution
July 19, 2009
I got tired of leaning my bike against a wall or my workbench. The Rakk is simple, well-made and functions perfectly. Just roll the front wheel in and your done. No contact with anything but the tire. This is the best item of it's type I have seen.
February 7, 2012
I've been shopping around for bike stands for a while now and this has got to be the best bike stand bar-none! I have built in cabinets in my garage so i needed a floor stand to store my bikes. It will take up more room than wall bike holders, but if you have room to store your bikes upright, this is the floor stand for you. Its the only stand where you wont have to worry about damage to your wheels. Its simple design is engineering at its best.

Rack comes assembled and folds flat for shipping in one piece. Flip up the wheel arm and it's done, takes more time to take it out of the box.

January 17, 2012
Best stand out there for the price. Very good quality and works equally well for road or mtn. I bought 2!!
December 31, 2011
Got sick of leaning my bikes all over the garage so picked one of these up. Great for quick adjustments and keeping your bike upright while dialing in your cockpit or re-wrappin' your tape.
simple function, simple solution

If you asked a class full of design and engineering students to come up with something to hold a bicycle upright, they should all put down their wacom tablets and popsicle sticks, and simply tell the professor it doesnt get much better than this stand. And unlike many cycling accessories, this is one of few that is accurately priced.

i saw this rack at a bike shop showroom and immediately started looking for my very own since the shop did not sell them. when bonktown/realcyclist started advertising them, i was ecstatic. the RAKK has made all of my other racks obsolete. it fits great with my road bike, hybrid bike, and my wife's cruiser. i also pack it when i do triathlons in the even that they run out of space on the race rack. great product.
Well-built, simple, and effective.
September 18, 2011
Didn't even need to put anything together. Slipped it out of the box. Slipped my bike in. Now, everyday, I do the second part.
Silly how other designs and stands complicate matters. This is a bike stand for life.
August 28, 2011
This is the second one I have owned and it works great. I have 2 bikes and I have 2 of these stands.
Practical but need some DIY improvement
August 14, 2011
I first saw the stands in a bike shop that had them for displaying new bikes, looked brilliant and easy to use. But the guys did not sell them nor could tell me where to get one! I ordered one on line, it is inexpensive and practical, just rack the bike, no more leaning on the car, the house brick-work, no risk of scratches....
But I have 2 negative comments:
- The contact spools are conical, but end with a cylinder where the tire contacts them. The pb is that the contact cylinder is wider than the tire, and the bike does not stand perfectly vertical. I think I will chop 1/8'' of each spool so that the tire gets ''pinched'' by the spools cones.
- Because it is made out of sheetmetal, the contact patches on the tires are ''razor'' thin, actually the thickness of the sheetmetal. I would want the tire to push on a flat surface (they could have bent the sheet metal to make a wider patch). BTW, you cannot store the bike in it, if the tire looses pressure, the bike may fall over.
Too bad, otherwise it would get 5 stars, I will have to get the missing 2 myself.
Great storage solution
July 28, 2011
This is one of the best storage solutions for bikes that I've run into. It holds the bike up by the tires, which means it won't work if your bike has a flat or is too wide. Saves my bike's paint and/or wheel from pressure on the rim/spoke from leaning it, using hooks on the frame, or hanging it by the wheel.
As far as tire limits go, the 2.4" estimate seems spot on. My 2.35 Rampage, 2.35 High Rollers, 2.35 Nevegal, and 2.3 Bronson have no problems fitting in (26" tires). Oddly enough, my 29er's Panaracer CG XC 29x2.25 tires won't fit smoothly. They can be wedged in, but the rack needs to be anchored down to pull the bike out. Freaky wide tire maybe (tubeless on Flow rims)?

I did a lot of research on the web before purchasing this product. It arrived yesterday, Realcyclist.com got it to me really quick. It took less then thirty seconds to setup, push one button and raise the rear tension arm, that's it. I put my Caad 10 in it which had been resting against a DVD rack. Wow, what a difference! The bike is held securely in the stand due to the rear arm tension system it uses. This is a well engineered product and someone definitely gave a lot of thought to the design. I highly recommend this stand, you will not find another one like it on the market.
Simply the best!
July 10, 2011
Just as the title says this stand is simply the best out there. Easy, quick, no hassle. Connect multiple units together if needed.
June 13, 2011
I was looking for a rack to stand my bike inside the apt. First impression.. it's a solid piece of equipment and not bulky.. easy to set up with just a press of a button, no assembly required. When I placed my bike.. 1st, my full suspension mountain bike, it held the bike strong with no problem of the bike's weight. no tilting or shifting of the weight..next my road bike. I like how it doesn't come in contact with the rim of my road bike.. my road bike is standing up straight. then, it held up on my wife's hybrid bike.
A must have stand.
Buy it now!
June 11, 2011
I was only getting this so I didn't have to lean my bikes against garage walls anymore. When I got it and set my bikes in it to test it out, I was pretty impressed how well it functioned. Both my Mnt and road bike felt secure while in it. And lets face it, you sure can't beat the price. Try it out and you'll love it.
March 4, 2011
Got this a little bit ago and couldnt be happier, will be ordering more for the other bikes.
The best I've found
March 2, 2011
These things are great, I bought two a month ago, and just ordered two more for our other two bikes.
Rocks for Road or Mountain
March 1, 2011
I love this rack. It is small but holds my bike. It only touches the tiers so does not scratch the paint or bend the disk on my mountain bike. It holds both my road bike and mountain bike solid. I can put it anywhere, it folds up small and could even be portable if you were going to a race.
February 19, 2011
Great bike stand. Attractive, functional, and expandable.
Best stand period!
February 10, 2011
I've used all sorts of stands over the years (even some I've built myself) and every one of them have been lacking in some way or another. Due to all the rave reviews on here, I decided to take the plunge and ordered 2 for my training and race bike.
This thing rocks! You unlatch the top bar, roll your back wheel into the opening and voila! it's done! Simple, elegant and best of all... keeps your bike totally upright without any tilting or leaning for an absolutely clean display (if you want to show off your collection like me :D).
I think I'm gonna order another 2 for the MTB and crossbike since the price is about right!
Best bike stand
November 14, 2010
It's the best bike stand out there and HucknRoll has the best price with free shipping (I bought two). Don't wait, order now and you won't regret.

October 30, 2010
Didn't realize how badly I needed something like this, until I got one. It's a simple, stable, elegant, and understated solution to keeping your bike stored at the ready, but out of the way. Very happy with this purchase.
Excellent design. Outstanding value!
September 2, 2010
I had been looking around for weeks, trying to find a bike stand that is durable, practical, won't damage the bike, and doesn't cost a fortune. Well, this is it! I just received mine today and couldn't be happier. It's everything I was looking for.
Point of Clarification
May 9, 2009
I was incorrect when I said the Rakk grips the wheel rim. - It does not touch anything but the tire itself. The vertical support bracket is spring loaded and when you roll the rear wheel into the trough, the vertical support moves rearward a few inches and brackets the tire about 15 inches above ground level. I still think it is a great bike stand!
December 15, 2009
This rack is a little flimsy, especially when linked together for multiple bikes. The larger the tire the less secure the bike is. I would try the other feedback option where the bike is held by the saddle.
