kids bike storage help
I recently took the training wheels off of my kids bike to teach them to ride w/o them. Now my problem is…….how do I store them so they won’t be leaning on my bike, etc? I store the bikes on a 10’x10’ Arrow metal shed, so there is not a lot of vertical distance along the sides. These are 16” wm special bikes, with no way to mount a kickstand unless they make one that clamps on. I need a storage solution where my kids (5 goin on 6) can get the bikes themselves w/o my assistance. Something that can be moved around because I’m constantly finding better ways to organize the shed.
As I’m writing this, a storm is brewing in my head where I could simply take some 2x4’s or what not and make a “bike rack”. Does anyone have an plans/pics of something like this? I wonder if I could use PVC for the uprights to reduce weight but keep the “base” something more solid like wood to keep it upright.
