A few local business owners that know me fairly well have been asking me for advice on where to get bike racks to put outside their businesses. I didn't have any problem finding several online suppliers through google, but i was wondering if anyone had any recommendations/warnings/etc?

The Saris racks are alright, but even there best racks are not made to last long term outside. In my city a local guy makes racks that probably 2 dozen or more businesses have, including the bike shop I work at. They are made of stainless steel, and are built to last. You may want to look into getting one made locally.

also, check with your local school - if they teach welding, they can either make some as a project, or the instructor can point you to some good welders who might take the job on.
The St. Louis Bicycle Federation recently had a contest to design a bike rack. The winning design had provisions for incorporating logos/advertising on the rack. Might be worth a look.
