Has anybody tried these?I'm looking to clear some floor space. Is it ok to hang the rest of the bike form a suspension fork long term i.e. over winter
I like the idea of all bikes equally accessible, just not sure if a stud wall will take 7 bikes hanging from it!!!http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2-X-WALL-MOUN ... 51a9a1166d
Cheers I've been looking for something similar
The listing implies that they would actually 'hang; (as in off one wheel) wouldn't lowering the mount so the rear wheel sat on the floor (or vice versa) take nearly all the weight off the mount!?
If you're mounting anything like that on a stud wall though it obviously needs to be properly through fixed at the top, sides and floor to something substantial, not just the plasterboard ceiling - and the trouble is to see inside the wall - unless you built it!
I'd also face the studs with ply or OSB board so any load (vertical or horizontal from 7 bikes
) is spread over the entire plane (this can of course be done behind the plasterboard!)
Sorry for the egg n granny lecture - it's an architect thing
