This DIY bike stand works great if you have the room. I built mine to hold 8 bikes which still leaves some bikes leaning against the wall. It is made with 2x4s and 1x6s.
You talking to me?
there's a similar stand at our local performance bike shop, but it's on sale for $75 9reg price $99), and I'm sure it's the same it just looks cheaper though. So I'd like to get the Nashbar one, but am waiting for the prime time to buy.
(yes, i'm a cheapskate)
I would give them a call and ask if you can get refunded your shipping cost and apply the promo since it was by one day. Because otherwise, bummer, dude.
Thanks for the heads up on the free shipping today, called and saved $19.00!
nashbar is one of the only websites i don't mind getting their semi-daily emails from letting me know their sales.
I drive my carbon bike around on a trunk bike rack, supported by the top tube. So do about a million other people.
According to web sites like this one, it looks to me like Thule thinks that if they slap their logo on something, that means it's worth 2x as much? I always thought Thule was over-priced (I have several of their kayak racks), and now I know they are over-priced!
Knock your self out, then.
Oh well, it was an additional $9, Still a great deal.
Performace has a store in Reston,Va so I got dinged for the tax here but sure saved on the shipping.
I just use this product:
Keeps the bikes from leaning against my wall, and keeps them apart from each other, while keeping them close enough to save some space.
Not sure if any of these different configurations I see above, or how the item here saves any more space than any other. Having bikes vertically against a wall just looks odd to me, indoors at least, and again, not sure if it saves much space compared to this.
Edit: of course those which are "towers" keeping a set of bikes elevated above the others surely saves space lol. But if only 2 bikes, I'll just take this $30 product.

I guess it's a good thing Performance has such a large online following because if all their stores are like the one I went to, I wouldn't see many people constantly lauding them as much as they do.
Ooh, question though about the Nashbar / XPORT rack for anyone that owns one already...
Are there holes on the back side of the vertical bars that the hand screws go into? Or is it just clamp tension? I ask because you can get "short" arms/bars (http://www.performancebike.com/bikes...551_1023859_-1) and I am thinking if it is just clamp tension I may add those but to the back side of the stand so a bike can be stored between the rack and the wall (since it's a bike that won't get used hardly at all)
nashbar rack came today. got it set up in the spare/bike room.
going to put my cross check on a hook to the right after moving some stuff around.
Nice, got mine but havent put it together yet.
