last call for “how to store 4+ bikes in a spare room probably mounted on the wall vertically by the front wheel but open to other suggestions”

probably going to get 4 of these and space them so that one bike is slightly above the other:

we will probably just deal with the marks on the wall by ignoring them


#8207

Will they hold the weight of the bike?

We have something similar at work and they are unsuitable if you have mudguards that extend to the point where the back wheel touches the floor


#8208

think this is as good as anything else tbh

haven’t seen anything I’ve thought was an amazing way of dealing with it


#8209

for marks on the wall couldn’t you fit some u-shaped half piping to guide the wheel into


#8210

think so… we were looking at a clug which needs the back wheel to be on the floor. these don’t. they’re good for 15kg so should be fine!


#8211

OH GUYS look what my dad painted us for Christmas


#8212

amazing


#8213

Who’d like a print and play East German (!) cycling (!) board game (!)?

i found some nice hooks with accompanying things for the rear wheel but they’re like £40 which is INSANIA


#8215

was thinking more of cutting up some metal guttering or something.


#8216

We did this in our spare room when it was the bike room. Drilled a sleeper onto the wall into the studs(?) of the wall then just bought some elephant hooks (approx contents 2)

If I was doing it again I’d had the rear wheels resting on the floor to reduce the stress on the hooks, but like nebbie says you might have an issue with rear mudguards


#8217

Amazing!


#8218

oh fuck, this is exactly what I want

the hooks or whatever would be on what is an external wall… wonder if that means we need to find studs (? god i have no idea what i’m talking about)


#8219

Read your building survey, but I suspect that the inner leaf of your external wall is blockwork, not stud.


#8220

That should be much easier then - I said studs(?) as the wall we attached ours to was a stud wall, so the sleepers were drilled into the vertical pieces of wood that the wall is made of (idk what they are called). If it’s an external wall then long hooks with rawl plugs should be fine.


#8221

that looks like it could be the one, nice one
doesn’t hurt* that it’s named after a new order comp

(*bonus song too)


#8222

The vertical bits of wood in a stud wall are called the studs.


#8223

proper love this.
may listen to the album on the way home today


#8224

I think I’m gonna get some modern looking bottle holders. the old skool ones I have on my frame look stupid.

that is all.
