I'm curious about the system you are using to hold your bikes. Mine are a bit cluttered in the garage/shed and I'm looking into some sort of system to hold them properly. Is it just a pipe for hanging by the saddles or is something holding the back tires?








.... oh yeah.... nice bikes too :wink:

a scaffold pole cut to the garage width, suspended from the garage roof joists with decent chain, which is closed with nut/bolts...

I hang my bikes in the same way. Got the idea from Biketreks in Ambleside

It's a good storage solution but over time seats will develop tears and seatposts will get scratched at the contact points.

Some thinner tube (like gas pipe) and some lagging will prevent any damage or marking.
You can get padding for the scaffold tube but it's a bit thick.
And nice collection by the way.
