Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Bicycle on Bicycle on Bicycle storage.

How do you store your bikes? No store bought stands please.

I was going to get a fancy bike stand, until I walked past this useless stationary fan bike for the umpteenth time in my life. Count the cranks weeeeeee!

ceiling hooks for when I need the space. Other than that just sitting front tire in my DIY PVC stand. I keep all my(family) bikes in the garage unless I'm working in the living room on one.

i use ceiling hooks. i have to really there are way to many bikes in my garage for me not to hang them up out of the way. seems to work really well for me. that way the kids (and wife) wont knock them over and i still have room for 2 cars.

I keep my commuter/road bikes in the shed unless I'm working on them or riding. My mountain bike(soon to be sold) sits in the yard unless its going to get wet then its in the shed too.

I'm glad other people like to 'hang' their bikes vs floor stands. I might get some 2" mooring lines from the harbor and make a similar ceiling to floor 'cable system'.

Glad you can get use out of that horrible contraption Spookay!

I've been using the seat rails instead of something like a frame tube, is there a 'best' way to hang a bike (seat vs top tube)? Seems like my Specialized seat likes to flex, so I'd assume over time 20lbs of a constant opposite normal force would be an issue? Seen it done many ways.

You could bolt those to 20 ft oak limbs around the city and suspend your bike. Keeps bears outta camping food, maybe it'll keep a-holes from putting hands on our locked up bikes.
