- Storing your bikes in the house.
Show me your pictures of clever storage please. Got 5 bikes down to 2 in the kitchen now. Anyone got any good ideas apart from the black hooky things you put on the wall for a front wheel to go in. Got a fairly long and wide kitchen but they are getting on my nerves leaning against my old pub seat I like to read the paper on.Posted 5 years agoKarinofnineMember
I’ve got 3 bikes on the wall of my lounge area, I haven’t got a photo, but I can describe that I have used clamps that clamp the forks – front wheel out – to the wall. Lockable too. In MkI they are perpendicular to the wall but I think at an angle would be better.Posted 5 years ago
Such paranoia. I got diverted by making dinner and seeing posting a photo involved more than my basic I.T. skills allowed, I may try tomorrow if bored. I like tree of bikes and a good busy bookshelf. Stuartie c is that a scaff pole or a proper shop bought one? Are the clamps for purpose or just bodged? Also is their a lot of tensioning the pole as our ceiling it would be on is an an extension. Plasterborad and on an angle.Posted 5 years ago

Braces against the floor and a ceiling joist (or just use a load-spreading board like I have). Very easy to set up – only needs a ladder, an allen key and a spirit level (second pair of hands is useful too)Posted 5 years agostewartcSubscriber
Now I feel rather pathetic with just the one bike in the living room although with all those fine efforts I might be able to convince the missus than an extra one or two would be normal!Posted 5 years ago
Oh, the apartment door is always locked and there is security in the building entrance and complex itself.davosaurusrexSubscriber
Marin – I’ve got an Oakrak floor to ceiling job which takes 2 bikes (can take up to 4 with additional brackets). Made of American red oak, it’s a lovely looking thing. I’m not allowed to keep bikes in the house anymore, cost me £130, I’m after £50 for it.Posted 5 years agocbikeMember
I have two big ladder/hose hooks on wall just up by the ceiling.
take the Front wheel off. Hook handle bars over and rest forks against a pad on the wall.
Placed in position using step ladders.
£120 cheaper than a stand and uses less space. I can get 2 bikes side by side in a tiny hall. You do need height though.Posted 5 years agojoolsburgerMember
I’ve got one of these high up in the utility room
The wheels are at about head height when the bike is on it, takes two bikes without removing anything no problem.Posted 5 years ago
