I have been thinking lately that I didn't want to clutter up the garage floor with all my bike projects like last year. I have two bays and my side has all bikes and bike related stuff to build my bikes. In the past I just remove my wifes car for the summer to her dislike. I got away with it but I felt pretty bad on rainy days she couldn't get out in her nice dry space. I have looked guilt in the face and have surrendered.
I hang about 20 bikes on the side wall but this rack is for the ones on the floor or some of them. Things working the way they do I'm looking to make another but to work this out right now with store bought stuff to get the bugs worked out and to make it easier for others to make theirs.
It really doesn't take but a few hours if you have everything ready. There is no need to stress out over this build, it's pretty basic in the build. Sizes can change to suit yourself but this is a good starting place to get yours up and running.
Step 1: Safety and Tools and some Fasteners
Safety is a must, pretty much standard stuff. I once saw an Instructable here with a picture of a guy drilling a flower pot while it was in his lap. One slip and.......you get the picture. Keep body parts where they're meant to be. Wear safety glasses, things may wack you in the eye. If you ignore this it may not be so funny. Well maybe to other people but not you.
The tools are pretty basic.
A circular saw with a good blade so you won't be fighting with it.
A cordless Screw Gun is nice but a variable speed drill is OK.
A hammer for any nails.
Screws and or nails of the proper length.
Construction glue is optional.
