I see your fleet of bikes, and think,

I am not worthy!

Oh, and the rack is great too!

That's the first all-plastic rack that I've seen. It looks like the bikes are held in place well, does it seem sturdy in use?

BTW, what is the center-to-center spacing of the bikes?

Hey, look at that old Raleigh!

Hey, look at that old Raleigh!
Spacing is 14" CTC

And you mean that "1952?" er, "1964" :-)
