    Nashbar Oak Storage Rack

    I just got these from Nashbar:

    All of the other racks I looked at were too "industrial" looking for our bedroom, which is furnished in oak victorian antiques. The bikes don't really match the decor either. My wife is just glad to have the bikes out of the way.

    As a woodworker, I don't approve of the way the arms are fastened with screws into end grain. They rate them to 50 pounds, though.

    If you are a woodworker, why didn't you build your own? They don't look overly complicated.

    I'll probably end up replacing them with my own work eventually. I don't have the time now. Too many other projects and working lots of overtime. Maybe after I retire.

    To really fit in with the decor you need an Ordinary; an old fashioned big front wheel bike. oh Goody, another excuse to buy another bicycle!

    Since my decor is industrial, I was quite pleased to find one of these for $40 on Craigslist.

    Living room, not bedroom, though.
