Topeak LineUp Bike Stand Review – Results of our Testing
Topeak’s LineUp Stand is a sleek, modern take on floor bike parking that’s incredibly easy to use, takes up minimal floor space, and accommodates mountain and road wheels from 20″ to 29″.
How it Works
The LineUp Stand is simple in concept and beautifully executed. To use, simply roll the front or rear tire (rear is best though) into the base, where the tire is then cradled at the bottom between two parallel bars. The tire is then pushed against a spring-loaded stabilizer arm that engages forward as the tire rests against a black v-shaped roller. Unlike most other bike storage racks out there, no lifting required!
Two support legs extend perpendicular to the base so that the base of the stand is 14″ wide. These support legs are actually four easily collapsible parts, making the stand a breeze to move around, or even carry with you if need be. The support legs have rubber bases which keep the stand from sliding across the floor.
If you do want to store the stand out of the way or take it anywhere, the stabilizer arm collapses down by pulling back and pressing the release button (the yellow button at the top of the stand in the picture on the left).
While the LineUp Stand is stable, its minimalist footprint makes it less stable that other floor stands we’ve seen with wider bases. We’d recommend using the stand indoors or in the garage where kids are not going to be playing and accidentally running into it.
In our testing, the bikes remained upright when pushed lightly or moderately, but if the bike is pushed with great force, it will fall over.
Capacity and Fit
With a maximum weight capacity of 44 lbs, the LineUp Stand is built to store most bikes with tires up to 2.25″. From mountain bike tires to road tires and 20″ kid’s bikes to adult bikes, the Topeak LineUp stand was a great fit for our bike fleet! We did try a 16″ kid’s bike just to see, and it definitely did not work with a bike that small. Fenders could also be a problem, but we didn’t have any bikes with fenders to test.
Either the front or rear wheel can be used to park the bike, and we particularly love that there are no obtrusive side arms that could come into contact with derailleurs, disc brakes, etc.
Comes fully assembled. As in you take it out of the box and use it immediately. Two thumbs up on that!!
A beautiful but functional floor parking option, the Topeak LineUp Stand is a solid option for indoor (hard floor) or garage use. Easy to use and easy to store, we loved how simple it was to park our bikes and walk away. Best for use in areas that won’t be highly trafficked by crazy kids!
