They look like renamed fru-fru versions of what most of the catalogs have. Nice, though.

Do you know of anyone that sells something like that in the US? That site is in the UK it appears. I just bought hooks for the ceiling in the garage but these are certainly interesting alternatives to hanging the bikes from the ceiling. Thanks again for the reply.

The Michaelangelo rack is made by Delta.
I got mine at a bike shop in Boulder at Bicycle Villiage.
$50 ish bucks and works really well. The front wheel tends to drift a bit though...
stil, happy.

I drilled/screwed two round eyelets from into my ceiling 18 inches apart, and 18 inches from my windows and I suspend three of my bikes this way with two bunge cords looped around the top tube and hooked into the eyelets. It is a great way to store and add funtional art to your apartment.

Home Depot and Lowes carry similar products. For anywhere from $10 to $30. A couple of hooks in the ceiling or wall work pretty good too.

Just tilt the supports so the front of the bike hangs lower, then your front wheel will stay in line.

I saw them at Target. Check in the home storage area. Fairly reasonably priced.

I got these at REI. I like them and enjoy my Wall 'o Bikes in the Garage. They use up A LOT less space than my Topeak tower (holds two bikes) did.
