How To Destroy Bike Storage Frustration – Think Racks

bike storage How To Destroy Bike Storage Frustration   Think RacksBike storage in our garage rises to the top of the heap on the frustration scale. I’ve got the racing road bike, the time trial bike, the carbon fiber mountain bike, a full suspension mountain bike, the knock around mountain bike, the back-up road bike, and my wife’s mountain bike (never ridden).

I just gave away a low-end mountain bike, freeing up substantial space. Not!

Photo album storage is a lot less cumbersome. While we’ve got photo albums and old kid’s schoolwork coming out our ears, they conveniently stack on top of each other and neatly fit into boxes. I’ve got my bikes stacked on top of each other to the ceiling but the darn things won’t fit into any boxes.

Well, that’s the problem with bike storage, isn’t it? Bikes are inherently unwieldy. They’re conveniently two dimensional and suitable for stack-ability until you have to deal with the handlebars and the pedals.

But getting some order into the garage is essential for sound mental health, if for no better reason than to reduce California State’s mental health budget.

    Does anyone make a hook to hang a bicycle in the overhead that slips over the top of a two by four/two by six ceiling joist? I do not want to permanently mount the hook (screw it in) but would rather slip it over the cdeiling joist and be able to move or remove.
