I built a wooden freestanding bike rack for a single bike based off my dual-bike design
. I had some scrap 2x4s. but I needed to purchase a few new 2x4s for this rack. The bike hook is hung at 63.5", which is perfect for one of my bikes.
Lengths to cut 2x4s:
1 - 65"
2 - 61 3/4"
2 - 36"
2 - 28.5"
1 - 24" or more
3 - 6"
2 - 3-6" (srap pieces are fine, size doesn't matter as long as a minumum of 3")
Screws: 2.5" wood screws
Bike Hooks: Any bike hook system will do, but I picked up these
from Home Depot.
Corner Brackets: I used some for support but they might not be necessary.

. It is important to see how they did the hooks. One of my bikes rubbed the coating off one hook, so I repaired it with handlebar wrapping and electrical tape.
