Up, Up and Away!

Finding a place to store larger items, like bikes or scooters, can be a challenge in a packed garage. Sometimes it can be hard enough to fit the car in the garge, nonetheless all the bikes and sporting equipment you also want to store there. By making the most of unused space with a pulley system you can create a clutter free garage that doesn’t give you a headache every time you open the garage door.

When storing a single bike there are a few good options, like the Mounting Bicycle Storage Rack, which is specially designed to make hoisting items up above a breeze. Once the bike is in position it can be locked in place to keep it out of the way when not in use. The Bike Hoist is another good option, coming complete with padded hooks to ensure your bike doesn’t get scuffed while in storage. Holding up to 80 pounds, the Storage Pulley Hoist is a great choice for heavier mountain bikes, it also features a safety release mechanism to ensure that bikes stay in place during storage. Whether you’re looking to store kids bikes or a nice road bike, a pulley system is a great way to keep them safely stored and out of the way.

To add the amount of storage you need you can even align as many of these racks as you need to store all the bikes in your collection. These rack aren’t just for bikes, they can be used to store all sorts of things you’d like to get out of the way. Use them to store everything from boats, to patio furniture to ladders.

A cool new Bike Rack makes me Happy, but a Mean Blog Lady bums me out.

I don’t know about what is happening to me here, but I am under attack by a weird INTERNET BLOGGER. That’s the worst level of attacker you can ever have, a step below fire ants or bed bugs or crabs. INTERNET BLOGGERS, when they get agitated, are tiny, and annoying, and they burn, and they keep you from doing what you’d rather be doing, which is writing about Bike Racks. Somewhere off in some sad corner of the internet, Wine Racks Blog tells all about Wine Racks and this chick Wineracks Molly I guess is really excited about those Wine Racks. Most of the weird blog is boring and stupid and dumb and retarded. Also spurious. But when you get down to the nitty-gritty and add up the pieces of feces, I’d say this Molly is mostly delusional and scary. Check out this post… this lie cupcake with ca-ca cream filling she baked up:

As you know, I’ve recently become aware of the blog that is called Bike Racks Blog, the blog that is known as the most dangerous site on the internet. I recently tried to have a conversation with Mr. Larry Wilson, the proprietor of the blog, but of course, I should have known better. You can’t reason with madmen. But still, I wanted to reach out, even though people advised me against it. I guess it seems naive, but I wanted to try to understand the person that would post such things like Cold, Chilling Holiday Nights demand you chill out with some stone-cold Holiday Deals!? Here is a transcription of that interview.

News Flash: She made that up. She never spoke with me.
BREAKING NEWS FLASH: I’m mad as hell, and Bike Racks Blog is going to war.

Yes, you guessed correctly… when Bike Racks blog is pushed, we go on the offended. We fight back to back, serving up hot angry soup. We strike when its less expected. We attack like clones and stick like a tack. We unleash Biblical levels of allegory. IT IS WAR, Wine Racks Blog. WAR. But please don’t worry long-time readers: attacking dumb hate blogs will not stop us from doing what we do best, which is finding the very coolest in Bike Racks, usually at Stacks and Stacks, usually at a very reasonable price, usually awesome. But we can’t forget that we were slander-libeled and libel-slandered by a libelous-slanderous herky-jerky wino. So the FIGHT BEGINS!

First thing I did was a reverse traceroute ping to locate the IP timestamp and compared reverse traceroute paths with traceroutes issued from the destination ping hops seen in directly measured traceroutes along the same ping path. It didn’t take me long to zero in on the computer Wine Racks Blog posts lie posts from. And it didn’t take me long to camp out on the street in front of the house where the computer Wine Racks Blog posts lie posts from is located. And it didn’t take me long to photograph the idiot.

That’s her, Bike Racks Blog League of Bike Rack Fans. So let’s GET HER. Let’s visit her site and leave comments and tell her how great THIS site is. Let’s type “Bike Racks Blog” into Google as many times as we can to get the #1 spot on Google Trends and embarrass her and blow away her traffic. Let’s not purchase any Wine Racks and kill the Wine Rack industry and then leave her nothing to talk about. Then she’ll have nothing to talk about but ME, so she can change the name of her blog to Unhealthy Obsession With Bike Racks Blog and then I’ll sue her for copyright violation.

So hey, do you need a bike rack that can accommodate many styles of bikes, in case you need to, I don’t know, convert them into one big flying justice death machine doling out beeatch bombs of megaton ninja vengeance? Then this is the one for you. It’s a really sweet Garage Gator Motorized Storage System. Garage storage for all your heavy toys has never been easier with the Garage Gator Motorized Storage System. The keylock safety switch allows you to lower or raise everything from bikes to gold bags, canoes to kayaks and much more. The Garage Gator is perfect for garage organization as it frees up floor space. 5″ model holds up to 125 lbs. 10″ model holds up to 220 lbs. Comes with a standard 110v plug and all hardware needed for simple install. But I digress…

It’s on friends. It’s on like Tron. Like Donkey Kong Marathon. I declare war on Wine Racks Blog, and I will not stop. Ever.

Molly better realize she just woke up the sleeping giant white whale, and THIS giant white whale she won’t be able to stop with just a slingshot and three magic beans.
