The plan is to make a better one for here and give it a nicer finish then I want to make a row for in my garage - if you go up then down you can get a lot of bikes in a small space.

    That involves a fair amount of plywood, but it's a very nice design!
    I wonder how is going to cope with bikes that may have a less-than-perfect weight distribution?

    How well has this system worked for you? I've really wanted to create a free-standing wall mount, as I have plaster walls and really don't want to drill into them. I had thought about hanging somethign from the picture railing, but wasn't sure it would be sturdy enough to have 100+ lbs. of bikes and gear hanging off of it. This looks really really interesting though, provided it actually works...

    Here is my solution. 1/2" pipe threaded into flanges fastened in a horizontal 2x4. Pipes are wrapped with bar tape to protect the wheels. 40" on center. 2x4 lag bolted into studs

    In the 5yrs it was on, it never moved. The key is to have the weight evenly distributed and make sure it goes vertically down.
    The floor and ceiling were ok, which is odd for an old British house! I would have not done it on a saggy floor, that would have been a disaster.
    See what's the conditions of your floor and ceiling, the latter is important because that too can flex and make the poles not tight anymore. Those poles (IKEA Stolmen, apparently discontinued but there are similar of other brands) are adjustable in length, and once set there's a bolt at one end that gives the further stretch to make a tight fit between floor and ceiling. You could always use one-piece poles but you'll have to make a damn precise cut on them, and properly bolt on both ends.
