Does anyone keep their bike in a small shed? I live in a unit so there's not much room inside or outside and I really need to move my bike out of the loungeroom. I'm looking for a shed that's about 1.8m wide 0.8m deep, but the problem seems to be that there's nothing available between 1.5m and 3.0m wide. It's looking like I'll have to get a 1.5x0.8x1.95m shed and stand the bike on its back wheel somehow.
Bunnings have a great range of small sheds, try there special order desk.
Bunnings was the first place I looked actually. They do have a lot of small sheds, but nothing that's quite big enough to stand my bike in. What's the special order desk though? Are you able to order custom-sized things from there or something? Might be worth a try ...
you can also get hooks like that with a swivel .. so the bike(s) lay flat against the wall. I saw a few at the tour village this year
AS Trappy said try Stratco, I'm fairly sure they have a bench height shed with sliding doors. Alternatively try Sharmans on Nth east road, not really shed people but sounds like you really need a bike cupboard.
I lived in a unit and got a 3X3 bu 1.95 tall I would go as big as you can it is surprising how much stuff can be suitable for putting in the shed
I keep one of mine (the Mongoose) in its original shed again after it returned home: a 1.5m square shed, with the bike placed diagonally (door at end of one wall), with the front wheel under a workbench.
How big is big enough for n+1 bikes? Answer: ((3n+3)+x)m2, where x is tha space desired for workbenches, stands, tools, pumps, parts storage (wheels etc.), and working space.
Unfortunately I'm pretty much limited to 0.8m in depth (or width, depending on the door's location).
Do you know Howards Storage at Mile End in the large shopping complex? I saw there a year ago 4 things for holding bikes, including ladder style and pulley system.
CELL bikes have a special on at the moment for a ceiling mounted pulley system though if you're renting this may not be suitable.
Next Generation Gym Memorial Drive have bicycle lockers in the basement car park, they are rectangular with a lockable door each end and an internal diagonal partition which allows a bike to be parked from each end. They've had them for a about 2 years so it might be worth enquiring where they got them from or take a photo and see if you can get a fabricator to make one up for you. Nth Adelaide aquatic centre also have lockers. These are upright and from memory they have a sprung wedge in the rear corner that you slip your wheel(s) into though attaching a hook to the ceiling might better suit those with fragile/expensive wheels.
