  • DIY Bike Rack for $20 / Bike Storage Stand & Cabinet for Garage

    If your shock leaks due to hanging, that means the seals need to be replaced anyway. If oil is getting out, dirt is getting in. Hanging this way is actually better for the seals, as it lets the lube oil in the fork lower sit at the seals, keeping them from drying out, & helping with stiction by keeping the sealing surfaces well lubed.

    I did mine this way, but I spent a little more on the hooks with a plate on them, & for the last bike of the 3, I used a velo hinge instead of a normal hook. lets me swing the last bike out of the way to easier get to the middle bike. I fit 3 bikes over a casement window, & might even be able to squeeze 4.

    to be clear, I mean I put my hooks so that I could alternate front wheel up/back wheel up/front wheel up.

    Awesome 'ible. One little niggling point: some basic pics of the finished shelves would be cool. Might be some stuff in the video, but I can't watch the video(at work) & it would be cool to see the finished product.

    FWIW, I've tried one of these, & your statement "but it is faster than most other hand held saws" hasn't held true for me. a $30 folding Corona wasn't just slightly faster, it was night & day. I'm all for repurposing & being able to make tools instead of buying them, but in this case, $30 is well spent on a saw that will get the work done in 1/5th the time.

    Bike Chain Cleaning and Maintenance

    Contrary to the recommendation of the other people in these comments, chain manufacturers recommend that you DO NOT use strong solvents or chain cleaners to clean your chain. All modern chains are impregnated with high quality grease from the factory, & deep cleaning removes that grease. you can never really replace it afterwards, & it's a better lubricant/protectant for the rollers than anything you can add once the chain is assembled. Wipe the chain off, with a mild solvent sprayed on the rag if needed, then put a drop of lubricant on each roller to help with keeping stuff out of the inside of the roller, & call it good.As for lubricants, TriFlow is a terrible chain lube. There's lots of decent lubes, but I prefer synthetics as they tend to have the advantages of both ...see more »Contrary to the recommendation of the other people in these comments, chain manufacturers recommend that you DO NOT use strong solvents or chain cleaners to clean your chain.

There's lots of decent lubes, but I prefer synthetics as they tend to have the advantages of both wax & oil lubes, with none of the drawbacks. Purple Extreme is my favorite, but Du Monde Tech works great as well.
