Can I hang a lightweight bike without hitting studs?
The answer is: MAYBE. We recommend getting two screws of the pedal hook into a stud when dealing with a hollow core wall (like Sheetrock), but for super lightweight bikes (around 20lbs.) everything can be installed with the supplied mollies, if done correctly. Pre-drill the holes with a 1/4" drill bit and install the mollies. We also recommend hand tightening the screws, since some of the new screw guns are so powerful that they will strip out the mollies immediately. Since there are many variables like, ...we don't know who installed your sheetrock? ...and how skilled are you in using wall anchors? ...our answer will always be MAYBE. We have installed many bikes this way, but still recommend screwing two out of the four pedal hook screws into a stud if possible.
What bikes goes where when stacking multiple bikes?

How much space is needed to hang two (medium sized) bikes on a wall?
An 8 foot high and 7 foot wide section should be enough to hang two bikes. First install the top DaHÄNGER against the ceiling and hang the bike that you want to be on that location before installing the second DaHÄNGER. (DaHÄNGER's should be staggered if there is not enough ceiling height)
