screwless Solution Needed for Hanging Bike in High Space

Postby eamonn123 » Tue Sep 06, 2016 8:36 pm


I have a challenge if anybody is up for it!

I bought a new bike today.. light enough/10.5kg. I live in a small one bedroom apartment with my other half in London and I dont wish to leave bike outside. The best place to store the bike is in a vestibule /porch area that is already 100% used up on the floor but that has v high ceilings. The area is small maybe 7 ft x 2ft but is 15 ft height I need to find a way to support/hang bike for storage up there. As the bike is light and I am tall I will easily be able to lift it up and down.

Main complication is that because it is a rented property and landlord is [difficult] I cannot use any screws.

On the plus side there is a long shelf running along the space at approx 7ft height. The shelf has a depth of maybe only 8 cm, so far too small for bike) but it is very well supported/strong and can easily support weight of bike.

Im pulled out my hair trying to find a solution on the net. The obvious solution for me would be like a shelf extension/increasing the depth of the shelf. I was hoping to find some kind of 'peg' like extension that would bite onto the shelf with a lateral piece extension but none appear to exist. The other option would be plastic /moulder holder.. Think of the phone holders in cars but bigger for bikes. I envisaged this would clip on to the shelf again. Unfortunately once again doesnt appear to exist...

any ideas or help appreciated.
