We just moved from Japan to Austria and our bike stable has grown to 3 bikes already. More specifically, we have
1 hardtail that doubles as a commuter,
1 road bike and
1 commuter bike (my wife’s).
In the future, we’d like to get our daughter a bike again.
We have a storage shed (with outlet and all) that measures about 2.25 x 2.25 m^2, and I am pondering over the options. As an interim solution I ordered bike stands that look like this. But in the long run, I was thinking whether it’d make sense to buy something like this or this Topeak stand. At least my mountain bike and my wife’s commuter would essentially be in daily use.
Since we are living in a rental, I’d like to refrain from drilling holes or make other permanent modifiations.
Not wanting to drill into the walls in rented flat which doesn’t have the width for something like what you’ve linked to, I went for the BikeNook so I could squeeze in a gravel bike. I didn’t expect much of it but its been surprisingly good/stable and I bought another two for my TT bike and road bike.
My son took 4 bikes to college (road/mountain/cross/beater for around campus). We were able to put one of them in secure relatively far) off campus storage, the beater with a lock with other student bikes near the dorm. He has a single, so was keeping the other two (XXLs) in his room. BikeNooks worked out very well.
