Hey, nice rack.

A few years ago, Mike Lawless welded together a pretty cool bike rack that we used at many races. Someone borrowed it (?) and it was never seen again. I was on the verge of purchasing one, but, I decided to see what materials I had around the house, to see if I could make one. Well, lo and behold, I had everything but the hinges, and for those, I used a store credit I had for the hardware store. Total cost, $0.

The team's CFO (Jean), will like that. I had the wood, I had the paint, I had the eye-hooks and straps, I even had the cross-bar & brackets (extras from a commercial-grade garment rack). I may even have a longer cross-bar, but if I do, it's currently buried.

Anyway, the whole set-up folds down pretty small, and will easily fit in the back of a car. If anyone wants to borrow it for a race, you're welcome to, but I will NOT lose track of this one.

Let's see if this holds up!

  1. Amazing rack!
    I became interested in this bike rack. Incidentally, my family really liked the bike. I have 5 bikes. It makes me more and more narrow garage. So, I need a rack to be able to put them. By the way, how much it's rack?
