Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

DIY Industrial pipe bike rack

Whats up everyone! I just wanted to share this with the bikeforums community. Last week, I spent a few days searching the internet for good ways to store bikes in smaller places, such as apartments and condos. I found quite a few products that were available but nothing that I was really sold on. I also came across a few examples of things that people had made, and decided to take a stab at building my own. Total cost for the whole thing was about $80 and it took maybe half a day to build/stain the shelf. The end result is exactly what I needed. My bike is out of the way and no space was lost

You're a landlord's nightmare making all those holes in the wall.

The next tenant is going to be stumped trying to figure out what those holes in the wall were for.

Especially if you took the shelf and left the pipe mounts. Wierd shower?
