Since I rent, I'm reluctant to screw anything into the ceiling, and besides, these stands each hold two bikes in the floor space of one. Plus if I move things around, the stands are easy to move to a new spot. And I'm slowly giving up the notion that my place should look like everyone else's place. For instance, I NEVER eat in the dining room, yet there is a dining room table and seating for six in there. What a waste of space!
I may sell that table and chairs, and put a bike repair stand in the center of the dining room, with the two stands along the back wall. That would give me plenty of room to (learn to) do routine maintenance.
After all, who am I trying to impress with a big old unused dining room table?
