Wall hanger/shelf for bike

I thought this was pretty snazzy. Since most cyclist spend so much money on their bike, might as well hang it like art!

I actually made this:

http://mike.sapak.info/2007/12/31/diy-bike-rack

I've got three of them because:
1. No holes in walls
2. No need to rely on wall strength
3. Cheap (free for me)
4. Fun to make
5. Holds 2 bikes, I made mine to hold three each

rwb, THAT is ART! I LIKE it!

Bot, I'm glad it works for you...but I would not insult my bike by using something so rough and ugly.

wall art--->like
$270-300/bike--->not so much

Go to target, buy a $50, 2 bike gravity rack.

Then spend the extra $250 on your bikes

That is a beautiful rack but it is quite pricey. If only the price were lower. I would say, "If only I had more money" but I dont think I could bring myself to spend that much on a rack. Heck, I didnt even spend that much on my bike stand.

looks good. but considering alot of my bikes dont have a top tube, or a strait one anyways I had to go with 2 of these racks. I have 1 in the office and one in the bedroom:


$15 in wood and it is freestanding





just triangulate the base:





stagger the hooks:





and you can make it as big or as short as you want it. and move it anywhere you need it.... It is perfectly stable and I have not had an issue in the past 2 years with it this way
