As I'm typing this I'm thinkin "what am I so proud of..?"
But anyways, here's my new bike rack. Started life as a regular PerformanceBike 2-bike rack/hangar.
But it was a little flimsy and not well padded.
So I added foam padding around potential contact areas, taped it black electrician tape (hard to see). Then took a couple of champagne corks, drilled a hole in it, slid a zip-tie through it and attached on the top so provide the padding and cushioning.
All in all, its been great because there's no other 'dead space' in my apt to ark my bike....except this spot above the stairwell...
Hope someone finds a useful nugget in this post.
