After 5 years in Brooklyn, it occurred to me that I was way over due to get myself a hipster single-speed bike. Unfortunately, if I stored it outside it would probably get stolen in the first week. And, NYC is not really known for it’s storage space. The only option is to stash it high up on an available wall.
I looked all around for a good wall mount rack, but it seemed that they either looked ugly and cheap or cost a whole lot more than I wanted to spend. So I looked under my bed at all the random wood scraps I collect and searched through the Ikea catalog. I think the finished product turned out nicely. It looks clean and simple and only cost me $4.
Whenever I do this type of thing I always think it would have been smart to have taken more pictures and documented the process via an Instructable or something. But while I am working I always forget or just don’t want to bother. Oh well.
