|Any opinions/advice on a good indoor storage stand for 2 or 3 bikes? Thanks for your time.|

|Check out the Velo Cache 4 Bike Column, Model VC-40B from Ultimate Bicycle Support. You can see it here: http://www.ussbike.com/ultimate/product.asp?dept%5Fid=2&pf%5Fid=13985 I have the 4 bike unit and alos their repair stand. The storage stand is beautiful, functional, and a pure pleasure to assemble it all fits together so nicely. It's made of strong metal, it's very stable, it's adjustable. I've seen it used in several shops as their display racks, it's built pro quality. I've never seen any other stand anywhere near as nice. It costs $200.00 which I think is a bargain as it will likely last forever. Or at least as long as I can still ride a bike. The bike cradle arms are completely adjustable even for wacky framed full suspension bikes. Mine holds a Cannondale Jekyl, a Novarra Buzz city bike, a Schwinn Peloton Pro, and a 70's Trek touring bike. I have zero complaints and all praise for this rack.|

|I see that Performance has the basic unit on sale for $100, and $20 each for extra (it ships with 2) mounts. I'd say it's a steal at that price.|

|I live in an apartment where space is limited and the Velo Cache would take too much room because of the feet. Also, as it's a rental, I can't drill anything into the wall.
I use a Sports Solution metal rack which I got at Colorado Cyclist. It basically wedges itself between the floor and ceiling. I have it mounted in a hall so that only two bikes will fit. I suppose I could fit four bikes on if I mounted it in the midde of the hall.
It's a well built unit, breaks down into a relatively compact size and shows some thoughtful engineering.

|If it is for a garage or basement, Home Depot sells a fold up bicycle storage rack for $5. It is one of the metal ones you just screw into the wall. It is like the one Nashbar and Performance sells for $20. I do not think they would look great in a living room but they are functional and will get the job done for your purpose.|| |
