PVC Bike Rack???

I've got a 12' x 8' bump out on the side of my garage, which is currently loaded with bikes of all sizes (some 20", a 16", couple of mountain bikes, etc.).  I'd like to build a bike rack out of PVC to keep them upright and easily accessable, and to prevent them from toppling all over one another.  Anybody got something similar they can post up some pics of to give me some ideas?  Thanks!  big_smile

Re: PVC Bike Rack???

Nice!  I searched the site for "PVC Rack" and came up with a few ideas.  Either gonna go with something lik you've got there (but linked together in a row) or a triangle type.  How sturdy is the bike in that rack?

Re: PVC Bike Rack???

It's pretty solid.....Probably more so if you built  a row of them.

Having the project is what makes me happy, finishing it isn't something I think about.

thanks, they are a combination from a single to up to 6 slots. I use these at bike shows or for photo shoots. Otherwise i just pack them up in my garage when I'm not using them

Re: PVC Bike Rack???

I thought this was pretty creative.  Oldschuulbmxer hinged two side pieces from a crib together to make this two-sided bike rack at our BBQ.
