Questions and answers
Who and what is PARAX?
PARAX is a trademark of PARAX UG (limited liability) based in Bönen. Behind the company are the two founders and owners Fridolin Förster and Torben Siegert. Together they develop high quality and functional wall mounts for your bike. -> Experience more in our magazine
Where does the name PARAX come from?
The name originated from the shape of our first bicycle wall mount. It forms a parallelogram when viewed from the right perspective. The parallelogram then became PARAX. Just like the parallelogram, PARAX stands for clear geometric shape and minimalist design.
How did we get from the idea to the first product ?
After a long development period we decided to launch the D-Rack on the Crowdfunding platform Kickstarter. Here buyers have the possibility to buy a product before the actual production to enable the realization and financing of the first small series. More about Kickstarter can be found in our Magazin

Is it possible replace the wooden panel of the D-RACK?
Yes, the wooden panel is only “pressed in” and can be both retrofitted and replaced with a little force.
Is the edge protection interchangeable?
To protect your frame from scratches as good as possible, the edge protection is firmly glued in. Therefore an exchange is not possible.
Do I need size M or L for my bike?
Whether you need M or L depends on your desired product. For the S-RACK you will need M for a handlebar width of up to 50 cm. For over 50 cm (up to 70 cm) you should use size L. The D-RACK size M is suitable for a handlebar width of up to 52 cm and size L up to 66 cm. The L-RACK is only available in one size and carries bicycles up to a handlebar width of 62cm.
Do I have to fix my front wheel?
If you want your bike to hang straight and the handlebars not crooked, you should definitely fix your front wheel. If you don’t fix it, your front wheel will probably keep turning. With the leather band you can protect the wall from dirt and streaks. We also think that it looks great too! 🙂
