Cycling Gear Storage

I found this type of stacked, wire basket arrangement works great for storing cycling gear. Helmets etc. on top, gloves, tool kits, cycling shoes etc. in their own basket below. It doesn't take up much space and it's on wheels so can be easily moved if needed. Can't remember exactly where purchased but I believe it was Costco or a similar big box store.

I "found" maybe 20 full size milk crates over the decades, plus a large bookcase, i use 9 cases for, Gloves, Headwear, Shorts, Shoes and Booties/sho covers, Tights, leg and arm warmers, stuff, more misc stuff, etc...... all my shirts and jackets are hung up on hangers on a pole hanging from the ceiling beams. I got organized with this stuff when i moved in 20 years ago.

Excellent system -- I especially like the fact that it's on wheels. Very convenient.

IKEA sells these plastic storage bins with plastic glides that can be mounted inside simple cabinets. The bins come in different sizes and can include lids allowing them to stack outside a cabinet. I originally made a number of such cabinets to organize our kid school and toy room, but have since repurposed the cabinets for shop use.

What I really like about them is I can dump an entire project in a bin keeping everything together, then pull the whole bin to the bench when I need to work on something.

We have the "storeWALL" slotted track system in our garage (installed by previous owner). It's quite handy for hanging all sorts of garage items, such as leaf blowers, ladders and garden tools. And it's reconfigurable as you adapt your storage ideas. The downside is that the accessories (bike hooks, large baskets, tool hooks, etc.) are very pricey.

We have three large baskets, each devoted to helmets, shoes, and other items (locks, barmitts, shoe covers, frame pumps). The baskets aren't cheap, at $60 per.

I see the plastic bins ^, but think that they lack ventilation for sweaty items like helmets or shoes, which you either couldn't stack or could only put away "dry".

I'd need about 6 times that amount of storage space. But then, I've been doing this for ... about 30 years. One tends to accumulate a lot of stuff in that period of time. (Hey, I did throw out SOME stuff this spring...)

I have a similar system - baskets, that is, but the baskets are on shelves in the (finished) basement in a two-door "closet" that we used to use as a pantry (before we re-did the kitchen). It's where my bikes are, and there's a bathroom, so it's easy to get geared up, wheel the bike out of the basement door and ride off.

And what if we are school teachers?

Something wrong with that?
