When this cycling addiction begins to not only take over your life but your garage or other utility area, finding efficient storage becomes paramount. My garage is bursting at the seams, and anything I can do to make more efficient use of the space is always appreciated.
I was in Harbor Freight today looking for a compact metric hex key set for my bike wedge. They didn't have what I wanted, but I did find something that I REALLY needed.
Since I have 11 bikes (9 in the garage) the Cycle Tree intrigued me. It can hold up to 6 full size bikes.
And for $40 it's a great value and a real space saver. It might not be the prettiest addition to an apartment, but it's very functional and easy to move.
I took about 30 min to assemble. The instructions are not the greatest, and they refer to Strut A and Strut B (2 each) and all 4 pieces were identical and unmarked. 4 of the 8 bolts are about an inch longer than needed, but that' better than too short.
None the less, it went together just fine. The paint job kinda sucks, but it works for the garage.
