I have not read a receont post about workplace bike parking so I thought I'd make one. Also didn't see a better forum for it.
Just this past weekend the company I work for moved buildings. Fortunate that they have a small gym and a place to shower. Right outside of the locker room there is an open area that I can put my bike. The problem is there is nothing to lock it to. If I can come up with something reasonable the facilities owner will allow me to do it. No attaching to walls or drilling into the floor (concrete with utility carpet). It is going to have to be something that sits right on the floor. I know this means that someone could steal rack + bike and drag it through a door but it's a chance I MAY be willing to take based on what is found.
The area is largely open with a door which leads to the outside. Great for me but also great for someone to run in, grab a bike that isn't locked, and run out. The building has security but they can't be everywhere all the time.
Something like the below might work. I'd put it together and grind the thread so it could not be easily taken apart. Obviously this is ALSO making it hard for ME to take apart if I ever needed to (unless I did more grinding). The below is a cheap stand and if that type of thing is what I go with I'll try to find a heavier one for sale.
Thoughts on what has worked for you in the past?
