    You really should flip flop your bikes. Putting the heavier mountain bike on the bottom will make the whole thing more stable.

    I did this in my old house and used the same mounts in my new house to create a little tidy place for bikes

    Thanks for the idea. The rack is surprisingly stable as it is currently setup. I have the Roubaix on the bottom because it goes out every morning. I want it easy to get to at 5 am every morning.

    I really like the look of this. I may need to move my guitars to another wall and do this in my office. I currently have 4 bike is there. The two bikes are on the stacker and two more mountain bikes are resting against walls. Makes it a little tight in here sometimes.

    Hang 'em, rack 'em, what ever you won't 'em. Just don't lean them top tube against a post, you will scratch the finish.

    I'll just point out that the force against that dowel (and against the rim) will be the weight of the bike divided by the sine of the angle between the horizontal and a line between the dowel and wheel axle. If your bike weights 18 lb and I estimate 15 degrees from your pic, this comes to ~70 lb.

    looks nice. i'm not a fan of the tension stands though. i'm always afraid it's just not going to be putting out enough pressure, or i won't be able to lock it when it is so it stays put.

    Rubber coated hooks into a 2x8 ceiling joist. Including the tandem. In case anyone asks.....it will not hurt your wheel or bike in any way. If you can't hang it by the wheel, then you can't hit a bump in the road your fat a** on the bike. Just sayin'.

    My apartment situation precludes me from hanging my bikes vertically from the wheel so I use this . The arms are rubberized so there are no issues with scuffing. A ton of the reviews on Amazon state that it wont fit two bikes, but it absolutely will (as long as you've got frames with a traditional double/triple triangle, compact or otherwise doesn't matter).

    In past apartments used rubberized hooks like PeregrineA1. Screw 'em into a 2x4 at a 45 degree angle, then screw the 2x4 into some studs. Costs less than 10 bux and incredibly sturdy. Just make sure the weight of the bike is on the rim, not a spoke.

    i know what you mean. It has pre-drilled holes on each end to allow for screws to be used. But so far the stand has been bumped a few times and I had a few scares but it hasn't fallen yet. If I had 10-12 foot ceilings I might be a bit more concerned because the pole does have some flex in it. But with a standard 8 foot ceiling. I'm not all concerned anymore with it being bumped and falling over.
