My wife and I got a tandem this past fall. I am finally getting around to cleaning up the garage and this darn bike is just always in the way. So I have been brainstorming on how I am going to store it.
I could hang it vertically, but the only good vertical spot already hold both of our mtn bikes.
So I thought I would hang it from the ceiling. The problem is that there isn't any place I can hang it vertically. So I thought I would hang it horizontally (or as much as possible). Basically put 2 hooks in the ceiling where the wheels with attach. And then have a 3rd hook on a rope (with a pulley on the ceiling) that I can then pull up so the bike is hanging somewhat horizontally (at least until the handlebars hit the ceiling).
I assume this should work fine, I mean the bike handles our weight when riding. I mostly worry about what if any effect this would have on the wheels, as it would be adding sideways pressure to them (pulling them out of true possibly?)
