Sturdy enough to hold two bikes, and handsome enough to store them in your apartment, this cleanly-designed floor stand keeps two bikes upright for secure storage. We’ve all had bikes topple and kickstands fail. And when the bike falls, it damages the wall, the floor and, at worst, the bike itself. Securing it with a stand is the smartest way to prevent mishaps.
The actual footprint of the stand is 23.5 W by 14.5 deep inches, taking up little space, while providing storage for two bikes. Bikes fit in holders without tools, hinges or fuss. The frame is made from lightweight, yet sturdy, tubular steel and rubber pads prevent the bike stand from sliding or scratching floors. Priced at only $39.99, this bike stand provides a lot of utility without breaking your bank.
The kiddos asked and old St. Nick delivered — a shiny new bike, that is. But depending on where you live, it’s not exactly bike riding season. So after dad gives in and lets them do a couple laps around the living room, what do you do with the new ride until the snow thaws?
Well, I’m glad you asked. There are lots of things you can do to make sure your fresh wheels are in still in new condition when the summer sun comes back.

Mom’s happy because she doesn’t have to scrap her windshield before work AND because bikes are out of little ones sight, out of mind until summer.
