Intro: Apartment PVC Bike Rack
For my apartment I needed a rack to keep my bike upright and off the walls. Nothing can be permanent in my apartment so I built a portable rack from PVC
Step 1: Materials List
I wanted to keep this simple construction
3/4" PVC and connectors was used throughout.
2x 10' PVC piping
6x: L Connector
6x: T Connector
Step 2: Tools
This was simple construction, the tools are equally simple.
*Saw: cutting things
*Sharpie: Mark the cuts
*Tape Measure: Measure twice cut once...
*Rubber Mallet: To "Persuasion fit" the connectors (who doesn't need a BFH)
The PVC pipes were cut in the following lengths:
3x 2" Connecting the U and TT
10x 11" For consistency all were cut the same to make nice right angles
2x 16" The long bottom pieces
The 2" pieces are used to make the "U" and "TT" joints
Only one "U" joint is needed
Two "TT" joints along the bottom
Start by making the double joints, there will be a gap until you hammer everything later on.
Make 2 "T" Joints with the three of the 11" pieces
Make the two bottom pieces 11" L 16" L 11"
All of the joints should fit together nicely.
