    Bicycle Shed

    Hello all - I live in an older house and I don't have a garage. With 4 of us here, the bicycles are piling up in the basement. Can anyone recommend a prefabricated shed to keep bicycles in? The ones I have seen tend to be 7 feet tall or higher - I'd prefer something 5 feet high or so to keep from blocking a window.

    Thanks!

    Build your own using a KIT to help you frame the shed. That's the best way to get a decent structure for your bikes.
    My preferred bicycle brand is.......WORKSMAN CYCLES
    I dislike clipless pedals on any city bike since I feel they are unsafe.

    Do you have any Mills Fleet Farms or Menards in your area? They have a selection of different sheds available. If you don't have either of those you could probably try a Home Depot or Lowes.

    Make sure it is well ventilated. Pay a little extra an put a slit roof vent and it will keep away humidity build=up, rot and rust away.
