Bike Storage

Hello, new memeber here. Just got into Mountain biking up here in sunny(?) Yorkshire. I need somewhere to store my bike, no garage anymore. I've seen a few adverts for these http://www.asgardsss.co.uk/products_...nbikestore.htm They are quite local to me. Anybody got one???? Are they any good??

Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

+1. Insurance co will want to see detailed valuations etc. too and may not cover you if they're in a glorified shed.

Personally, I wouldn't leave any of my rides in a shed. Maybe a garage. Bedroom / living room FTW

Keep them where you keep your Tikit and BF..NWT..or buy a Dahon folding mountain bike like a Cadenza..cheaper than an Asgard locker..

I have 20 Trek bikes for our bike tours. I found that wall hooks are the best to save space. And you can use your bike as a work of art.

Reducing the size of your bicycles whilst they're being stored is a tremendous convenience.

Bike Storage

I bought one of these sheds - played it clever though, they have a dealer on ebay so I got it a bit cheaper.. the shed is fantastic! Bomb proof, I'm really pleased. Guy who delivered helped me put it together as an added bonus. Rust proof with a ten year gurantee - Can't go wrong!

Either you have a folder, in which case good luck with the sportives, or you spend a LOT of time rebuilding your rides before each outing...

j/k
