I've got the same problem. Really high ceiling in the garage. It takes an extension ladder to reach the ceiling. I ended up building a 10'x12' shed in the back yard. It cost just a little more than the home depot hooks, but it's great for the mountain, cruiser, tandem and kid bikes. The road bikes still go in the house.tpcrider said:Thanks . My garage cieling is about 15 feet and I can't reach it with out a step stool.
So screw the $0.59 jobbers into the wall instead of the ceiling. Walls have studs, and if there isn't a stud where you need it, bridge two or more studs with a horizontal 2x4 and screw into it.tpcrider said:Thanks . My garage cieling is about 15 feet and I can't reach it with out a step stool.
The wall hanger looks like a better bet. Anyone else have any experience? What about any potential wear to the rim?
Hanging bikes by the wheels won't hurt a thing. Don't you think that any wheel capable of holding your weight (and the bike's weight) while riding will be plenty strong enough to hold the weight of just the bike?MShaw said:I've always been a bit leery of hanging bikes by the wheels. Don't know why. I've never done it in the 19 years I've been riding.
