I spent less than $3 and an hour's time getting this done with the "help" of a two year old.
Step 1: Gather Materials
- 1/4" x 3-3/4" Lag Thread Screw Eye - Qty:2
(Other sizes will do fine, just make sure the
carabiner fits the eye and there is
sufficent thread to hold the bike up)
- 3" Carabiner 150 lbs rated
(Again other sizes are fine, just get one
with enough strength to hold the bike and
perhaps a swinging 2 year old...)
(I had some old webbing on hand, but nearly
any decent webbing will do)
Step 2: Make Hang Loops
Step 3: Attach Eye Bolts
Step 4: Hang It
- Flip your bike and loop the webbing / carabiner around the rims. Be carefull that after wrapping the webbing your tire doesn't spin and foul your derailer and brakes or chip that new frames paint.
- Lift the bike by the webbing and clip the carabiners into the eye bolts. Don't underestimate the weight and awkwardness of your bike when you lift - It gets easier.
