Mission Apartment or New Bike Shop?

Is this a picture from a new bike shop? Reader Olivia explains:

…this deserves some public recognition! a bike rack that my two friends built in their mission dolores apartment.

I know at least two apartments (you know who you are!) that would benefit greatly from this sort of arrangement. The commonly-used doorway bike pile is not a scalable system. It’s designed for quick deposit, not retrieval.

Got a better way? Send us a picture or explain in the comments.

    Nice job. However can we just talk for a moment about the absolute absurdity (among many) from planning code chic with respect to the simple front street access to basement conveyance storage — aka the good old fashioned garage?

    All the car nazis are trying to eliminate this basic feature without understanding (because they are bug-eyed and clueless) that garages are great for bikes, and the assumption that somehow its a win for cyclists to have to carry their bikes upstairs and hang them on hooks.

      It’s not that garages are bad; it’s that a parking space rents for a mere $100 a month or so.

      Take two parking spaces, turn them into a “studio apartment”, and now you can rent it out for $1200 a month.

    You can get all of those bikes on a rack half the size if you rig up something with sliding hooks and stagger them (front wheel up, rear wheel up, etc.).

    I will rent you a spot for $100 a month, on the street in front of my house.

  6. Hey superb website! Does running a blog similar to this require a massive amount work?
    I have virtually no expertise in programming however I
    had been hoping to start my own blog in the near future.
    Anyways, if you have any ideas or tips for new blog owners please share.
    I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just wanted to
    ask. Thank you!

  7. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website.

    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very hard to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a great job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.
    Superb Blog!
