    chicago: Looking For A 'SCHOOL YARD' type bike rack

    Hey Chicago peeps, I'm looking for one of those older, larger school yard type bike racks.

    You know, the old metal ones that you really don't see anymore since Da Mayre replaced 'em.

    If you know where I can score one let me know!

    <3

    I know I've seen a few recently but I can't place them.

    They're just sitting out in the cold, rusting away!

    I'd love one & give it a home in my basement, next to the gimp!

    I second asking the city where they put them and if you can get one for free. No harm, no foul right? Or you could just "find" one laying around somewhere...

    I've been meaning to make one out of 3/4 inch pipe, just like my workstand.
    Would be easy enough.

    it's for making a truck bed rack out of pvc pipe to hold three bikes ~$20. i am sure you could mod that to your needs.

    Woah!

    I never thought about that!

    And it'd be super light.

    PVC Glue, eh??

    I would think it would hold fine without glue but the glue would only make it stronger. If you don't glue certain parts it would be modular and allow you to extend in the future.

    you can NEVER have too much bike parking.


    Our basement probably has 35-40 bikes/frames in it, and I'm sure there will be more in the future after we finsih renovating and have **** organized.

    Our MIG would do it just as well. The problem is finding enough metal. Maybe.... Oh ***** I should totally just go over to Working Bikes and take their dead frame pile off their hands and make it into racks.

    Right after I do all the other shti I need to finish. Dammit.
