Nice job. I need to make one of those. Keeps your bike upstanding and not leaning against anything.

I have a few of those, but none of them support the 3" I have on my 'cruiser'.

Also, I stole some medians from the playground parking lot up the street, they kick large amounts of ass.

I've been looking at buying a stand to hold the bikes upright during storage. There are some nifty designs out there! Can't be bothered making my own though

Pretty cool! Looks like you could use it for transporting your bike in the bed of a pickup too!

yep, it works well, i have two hooks on each side of the truck bed, and i get a bungee and put it through the stand, and hook it to the hooks.. then i just have another bungee to hold the bike in place (handle bars)..

when i was builting it, i found the guys cost estimate to be off quite a bit, the pipe itself is dirt cheap, but its the t-joints and the elbow joints that hit the wallet hard.

A temporary thing i used to avoid the disc hitting was stuffing a old baseball glove behind where the wheel goes, and the wheel is forward enough not to hit the pipe.

Ill take a picture of my bike in the truck later tonight (truck is 250km away at the moment) to show you.

And if you are wondering, its a 94 f150 long box, with probably at least a foot to spare on each side.. i couldve made mine accomidate 4 bikes, but the wheel arches were kind of in the way, and its a regular cab, cant sqeeze in more than 3 people anyway.

edit: actually, i used a salt bag for a water softener to secure the rack so it wouldnt hop up and down...

another edit: sorry to hi-jack your thread there disc....

Hahaha, how would you steal those? Those things weigh like 50lbs.

Nice stand too, Im looking into making my own when I get around to it.

Hey mx_599, I finally got around to taking a picture of this rack. The truck was away for a while. I dont know if it matters anymore or not, but here you go.





the baseball glove i use to stop the disc hitting the pipe...


I couldnt find any of my bungee cord to rig it up properly (i use my civic to haul my bike now), but you can see the hooks on the side where i do tie the handlebars to.
