I made a bike wall mount out of a 2x6 and a bed frame.

My wife has gotten upset with me almost every day for a couple years now. She was tired of tripping on my bikes seeing them layed on the floor, etc...

So I made this!

I made it tall enough to where nobody in the house will hit their heads walking by. I wanted to make it simple, robust and easy on the eyes.

I stained the wood ebony to go with the rest of the kitchen theme and sanded all the rust off the bed frame angle iron.

I angle grinded all the rivets off and profiled the corners so they wont cut anybody. Hand filed it and then hand sanded everything. I drilled holes in the top of the angle iron every 6" and used beefy hardware to hold it in place.

The hardware mounting it to the wall are x12 4-1/2" screws with a 3/8" shaft. Super solid. Torx!

I found the wood at a construction site.

Hope this inspires you all to store your bikes on the wall where your wife will be happy! wink

My garage is usually insane with weird odds and ends. It's a pain for me to go in and out of there sometimes but your solution is as good as any! smile

My workshop is 2 feet lower than EVERYTHING else in the house, and I store my bikes in there. You would have to know where to look to find em. I actually want to "hide" the door into it so it looks like a shelf or a plain wall. I have a couple hooks and an area they hang out at in the back of the room. Then a full bench and lights, along with all my tools. Really it would be a pawn shop jackpot if some dingus got in there, but they would have to know what to look for, and hope I am not home. There is only one way out of it....

Nice. I use just a red utility hook for my road bike to hang, and the BMX stays on the floor.

I fucking WISH I had a garage.

Me too.

I have literally all of my stuff aside from clothing and a couple video game systems in this 8 foot wide by 16 foot long by 6 foot tall room that is 2 feet below everything else in my house.

What do you guys mean by 2ft below? Like a crawlspace?

Sort of. My basement is level with my backyard, and my workshop room is 2 feet deeper than it, in the middle of the house. It's hard to explain haha.

Here is a perfect to scale drawing of my house setup:

Well, I have half a garage if that counts smile

Wife parks her car there in the god-forsaken winters we have here, but in the summer....it belongs to the boys....(not shown Redlne RL-20-II or the 18" park BMX) Photo

Ontopic: Love the idea of the angle iron, I might hang a few in the garage this winter that way as the basement storage area is getting pretty crowded

I want a separate two storey building with a two door garage at the bottom, a massive roll chest and work bench. The 2nd floor is my music studio. I'm realistic, I'll never have this.

Move to the countryside and build it yourself wink That's exactly what I'd be doing if I wasn't planning to emigrate.
