For example: One front wheel, the second one back wheel. Or please reverse one or more the bike holder(s), so the bikes could be inserted from both sides if there is large space.
- STRONG: The stand is made of quality steel. Also powder coated black finish is for long lasting. It is recommended to be used indoor only. The front and back plates holding system prevents the up holder (supporting the wheels) getting wider at the top. The wide holder will affect the bike holding stability.
- EASY TO USE: The bike stand holders are all linked together, so the stand is heavier and more solid than single bike stand. Please watch our detailed instruction video in the listing.

Limitations: 12" to 20" kids bikes only sit in the front holder, so it good to hold on back tire ONLY. Disc rotor could touch the bike rack although it would not bend. Bike hubs may touch the bike stand holders too.
