Looks like a block is lagged to a 2×4 and then the mount slips over the block and is screwed in from the top.

Looks like you could hang it off the price; it’s high enough.

Sure is a lot for a couple pieces of Walnut. Wonder what they mean by “The Bike rack mounts to a single stud utilizing a simple lumber mounting bracket that is incredibly strong. “

it looks just like a single lag bolt through a slot in a wood plate.

using a bit of photoshop, you can see it here as well.

I’m assuming its a slot because the bolt is in a different location in each picture. It would allow you to center the bike on the wall regardless of the stud location. In the other pictures, you can see the 3 screws they use to secure the bike rack to the wall plate

Keep in mind that these bike don’t weight much. You should able to pich up one of those bike with one hand. Two hands to mount it on to the block.

So, it should take much to mount the block.

If you look closely at their photo, you can see 3 holes in the top of the shelf, where the shelf is screwed down to the block that would be bolted to the wall.

Looks like you screw the back to a stud then you screw the hanger to it. Not too complicated. I guess I missed drfixit last post. Must have had a senior moment.
