Soapbox Saturday - Monkey Bar Storage

After posting about our garage clean out I received an email from Monkey Bar Storage.  They asked if I'd like to try our their garage bike rack.  It mounts to the wall and holds up to 6 bikes.  I thought this would be a great way to clear some space in our garage and I was really excited to get it on the wall.

It only uses 4 feet of wall space and it holds different types of bikes.  See the hooks that the tires can sit it?  It makes it really easy to load and remove them.

So here's what ours look like right now.  

I figure that we'll still keep the boys' bikes down for the summer, but this will be great when winter hits again.  Then we won't have to do a little dance around all the items in the garage to get the snowblower out each time.

So here's what I really liked about the bike rack:

- It was easy to install.  You can move the mounts to hit the studs correctly.
- The hooks for the bikes make loading and unloading them simple.
- It can save lots of space in the garage.

Here's what I didn't like:

- If you don't have high ceilings in your garage and you're mounting large bikes, they won't really be out of the way as much.  It would still work well with kid's bikes and a lower ceiling, though.

So if you need some extra space in your garage, you can find this bike rack HERE and you can find a lot of other great storage items HERE on their web site.

Thanks for reading.

Completely off topic, although I do like the idea of hanging toys/bikes in the garage to free up floor space. I noticed your child's strider. My son has one also but we can't get him to use it. He acts like it bothers his legs. Do you have this problem or have any advice to get him to use it? Thanks!
