Can we create the best bike storage? Oh yes!
I’m looking into developing a new means of storing the bike at home.
Please tell me any how and where you currently store your bike, and also any problems you have with this method.
I also want to know any ideas you guys may have about making the storage system:
QUICKER TO STORE
SAFER TO STORE
Hit this with your best ideas, this could be in your home soon… you never know!

Quick, safe, easy, space saving, clean?
Just build a large inspection pit in the hallway. Simply drop the bike in (hydraulic lift upgrade is an optional extra) and close the lid (carpeted to match your hallway), then the auto-clean programme starts followed by the auto-dryer. Auto-lube would be nice but could be tricky to align properly. Then a few hours later you just open up the lid, pull out your shiny clean bike and ride off for more fun.
You didn’t say anything about it being practical or affordable did you?Posted 4 years agobeejSubscriber
I’d like a tardis style secure box that I could put a bike into and the box was only 20cm wide on the outside, but 80cm wide on the inside.
I’d also like it to be invisible at the touch of a button, and have a non-invisible remote control that I could use to turn the invisibility off, just in case I forgot where the secure box was.
It should include the features of a car wash too, but without anything that would damage the bike or destroy grease within bearings. It should relube the appropriate parts after cleaning.
When can you deliver?
Now I’ve helped you, can you come and tidy my garden for me?
EDIT – Will your product need a logo? There are people on here that love doing logos for free.Posted 4 years ago
I reckon some sort of brick built facility, possible integrated with the house. At one end I’d have a big door to allow easy access. I’d make it big enough to store lots of stuff in there, not just a bike.
I’m reall keen on this, so keen I’ve already given it a snappy name. ladies & Gentlemen, I present the G.A. Rage storage solution.
Thinking about it, could even make it big enough to fit a car in it!!!!!!!!!!!!Posted 4 years ago
I did come up with another solution a while back, which was quite ingenious. I developed an ‘invisible paint’. quite easy to use, just paint it on and the bike becomes invisible.
It worked really, really well the first time I used it, so well infact, that I just left it outside the house. As it was invisible, it was perfectly secure.
Trouble was, I couldn’t remember exactly where I put it, spent days searching for it, but alas, it was so well hidden I couldn’t find it. Never have found it, but it’s still there. Ultimate security!Posted 4 years agodannybgoodeSubscriber
Whilst not necessarily a storage solution per se I find a huge dog when used in combination with hiding the bikes somewhere in the house (not saying where at this stage) acts as an excellent deterrent to thieves.
So, some sort of kennel / big dog combo attaching to the side of any storage solution could be handy.

QUICKER TO STORE – need to be able to get in in quick, so the wife doesn’t see it
SAFER TO STORE – Must be hidden firm view, so the wife doesn’t kill me
SPACE SAVING – Must not take up space, or the wife will notice
CLEANER BIKE – must prevent me getting crap everywhere, or the wife will be annoyedPosted 4 years agoandrewhMember
I’ve got something which sounds very like the G.A.Rage but it seems to keep filling up with lawnmowers and stimmers and chainsaws and old bits of furniture.Posted 4 years ago
Could you make some sort of entry system which would keep these things at bay? Also, if you could think of a way of making a warm one that would be helpful.MSMember
The biggest pains are for people renting IMO. You can’t generally start screwing stuff into the wall and so on. I’d like a free standing system that hangs them vertically by the front wheel.
Well you better not tell my landlord…When I take down all the selving and bike storage in my garage it will look like a machine gun has been fired at teh walls! 😆
Might need to fill them when I leave…Posted 4 years agoandrewhMember
EDIT: no, not like that.Posted 4 years ago
EDIT 2: Not like that either. Just spotted the full stop in your youtu.be link, probably not helping, another go coming up
Anyone else want to try? I want to see what this video is now. It had better be good Chris!sugdenrMember
Being serious for a moment……
Havent you noticed that chaps/chapesses with the decent storage solutions usually need it due to having an excess of bikes?
Those of us with just one or two leave them lying around.
Moral being – better your storage, the more you spend on bikes. Best left lying around to discourage unecessary bike purchasing.Posted 4 years ago
