Any o these should do...ironhorse1 said:I put this question in the new riders catagory because I'm afraid I'll get laughed at real bad.
When I get my new road bike home from riding how do I store it in the garage without a kickstand?
When I bought my first Bianchi road bike and asked the LBS employee how they install the kickstand. The look on his face was priceless. Thankfully he resisted the opportunity to shame me and instead patiently explained why this was a no-no.cmatcan said:never ever ever resort to a kickstand. you should be willing to stand in your garage holding your bike up while occasionally snacking from a mini-fridge and showering with a hose, waiting for your next ride before you make the biggest mistake of your life and get a kickstand. lame, lame, lame. thank god you had the sense to question this and seek advice.
Not true! They also like to fall over when they're on a kick stand. A slight breeze can do the trick, possibly damaging paint, levers, or drivetrain parts.crumjack said:The wall works great. You'd be surprised, bikes only like to fall over when you're on them!
Still balls, cups and cones in the hubs. - TFironhorse1 said:That's cool, I'll get/make a wood hanger and strap it to the garage wall. I'm 50 years riding bikes and so used to dismounting and puttin down the kicker. I've probably rode to the moon and back in my life and believe it or not I'm finally going to get a "high end bike". What no packing balls & cones?
