Hi everyone i will be getting my bike back soon and soon after that i will be getting a second. The problem i have is storing them in the dry, i have half front of a garage as the other half is wifes office. In the front half has a running machine, freezer, tumble dryer, kids electric cars etc. I used to put my bike on the running machine but i think it will get knocked about when the family use the running machine keep moving it etc.

Is there any good hanging things for bikes as maybe able to hang up someone there?? The garage door swings up so it is limiting the space.

So anyone with any ideas please.

i keep my cheap bikes in the shed and decent ones in the house. the mrs loves it.

i have just aquired something similar to this...

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/New-Gear-Up-Bike- ... 286.c0.m14

which is really handy. 2 bikes take up the same room as 1 and mo more handlebar/tyre marks on the kitchen wall!

over the years, Ive used several methods in the garage.

horizontal scafold pole well above head height and hook saddle on.
or

hooks in the rafters near the edge and hang bike by the front wheel so bike hangs vertically - it looks as tho' its climbing the wall.

So just a hook in the wooden joist is as good as a bike stand, might well look into that. Any other ideas??

Nope,not as good as a bike stand no.
I thought it was just for storage/drip dry.Or you could get on of those wall brackets that hangs it by one pedal
Or
Option B-Tell the wife to find somewhere new :?

Option B :wink:
