    Display stand question

    Hi All,

    I was looking around Kickstarter and found the following stand:

    I've already committed to one, but was wondering if anyone had similar stands for displaying their bikes they would recommend.

    Thanks!

    Haven't seen that stand before and it seems a little over the top for my tastes. Actually it qualifies more as a storage stand than a display stand.

    Most of my bikes get hung on foam covered bicycle hooks - identical to the ones used at the shop. They retail for about $4 each and the bike hangs vertically from the ceiling.


    Alternatively I do keep one hybrid on the wall at the front entrance. That hangs on two closet supports originally designed to support a shelf and clothes hanger bar. The bike frame just drops into where the hanger bar would go and helmets etc go on the shelf. Total retail cost about $30 including shelf.


    But for a display stand only, I 'm currently using FlashStand™ from Topeak

    Thanks for the reply. I'm using the standard bike hooks as well for the rest of the bikes in the garage. I was just looking for options for display purposes. I was just drawn to the wall hanger since it puts it up off the floor.

    I guess I'll just go with this one then and keep looking.

    Thanks
