Questions & Answers

David
From which side of the bushing should the measurement begin?
Fabian
Start measuring from the side of the bushing that sits outside of Tee. The purpose is to allow the bolt go through both couplings without interfering with the pipe once everything is assembled.
David
For how long should the glue be allowed to bond?
Fabian
In my case 5 minutes was enough. Check your glue's label for best results!

Mount the bicycle

Fabian
time
2m - 4m
difficulty
Easy

Remove the seat post from the bicycle, slide it into the Tee coupling and then secure it back into the frame. Attach the bike to the wall mount and insert the securing bolt to prevent the bicycle from falling.

David
Will this mount work on a road bike?
Fabian
As long as the seat post is removable and round-shaped, it should work.
