    Bike rack suppliers?

    A few local business owners that know me fairly well have been asking me for advice on where to get bike racks to put outside their businesses. I didn't have any problem finding several online suppliers through google, but i was wondering if anyone had any recommendations/warnings/etc?

    The Saris racks are alright, but even there best racks are not made to last long term outside. In my city a local guy makes racks that probably 2 dozen or more businesses have, including the bike shop I work at. They are made of stainless steel, and are built to last. You may want to look into getting one made locally.

    also, check with your local school - if they teach welding, they can either make some as a project, or the instructor can point you to some good welders who might take the job on.
    As with mud, life, too, slides by.

    The St. Louis Bicycle Federation recently had a contest to design a bike rack. The winning design had provisions for incorporating logos/advertising on the rack. Might be worth a look.

    This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
