If I wanted to buy some sort of scale to hang in my garage to weigh bikes, where would I go? What kind? How much?

Something like this might work for you, unless you've got some heavy mountain bikes you want to weigh:

I bought a Berkley Fish Scale for around $20. I think it goes up to 50# with 0.1# increments. If you do a search for berkley fish scale, you'll get a ton of hits.

Good Luck,

I too have a Berkley scale. It's easy to use and read and give consistant readings.

$29 seems to be the best price I could find. http://www.fishusa.com/tackleshop/catalog_product.asp?ProductFamilyID=%7B35D4A239-D68C-42A5-B04B-DA5CF3EC0B8A%7D

Go to a fishing store. They've got bunches of hanging scales for sale. I got a digital one that maxes out at 30 lbs. for about 50 bucks. (Or was it 25 lbs. at 40 bucks?) Fishing stores also have groovy Shimano Brand velcro straps...vastly superior to the straps they sell at bike shops and hardware stores. Bait you'll like 'em.
