TBH Andy it's surprising how involved you get in things like this. I work in Civil Engineering so know what to do but finding the time is the problem. Luckily I have lots of mates with various trades locally and got them involved to get it finished

I designed it then got an architect to draw up my building regulation plans, then once I had planning permission sorted, I got a mate on-board to help me and  knocked down the old garages and outbuildings

It looks like this from the back, it's effectively a granny flat which we have moved into while we spend the next year or so rebuilding the house. It doesn't look it from the front but the footprint is nearly 100m2 so quite an udertaking

Still love the garage the best though..... :smitten:

Didn't know you're working in Civil Engeneering, but it's quite obvious that there are - besides finding the time some propper skills necessary. I wish you all the energie you need for all the work that is left to rebuild the house.  :daumenhoch:

Mick I actually use some proper brackets that are totally adjustable as they have a heavy duty arm at each end that swing out to any angle so the bikes can be positioned any position you need :daumenhoch:

I'll grab a pic when I get a chance as I can't remember the brand :-\

Amazon have them but they're not cheap as you will struggle to find them now

The rest I hang up with these fixed type, but they're not the best tbh

Thanks Spen! :daumenhoch: They look good but sadly, are out of my price range. Thumbs down Have been thinking about something like the hooks below, though worry about waking up in the morning to find all my beloved bikes lying in a crumpled mess on the floor!! I guess you get what you pay for!

Mick, it depends if you're riding the bikes or not as you need a bracket that can offset far enough from the wall for a BMX as your bars are usually about 26-30" wide. If you want to display a pony, you can turn the bars and even swap the pedal on one side to be out the way and use much smaller hangers :daumenhoch:

As you can see from the state of my kid's Redlines, it's a miracle they actually get hung on the wall but I need the space for the cars  :buck2:

You don't mess around, do you! :bow:

All my bikes are riders rather than wall-hangers, as it were. Actually, I want to hand them from the rafters - literally in my case as I now live in a 150 year old house with big ol' wooden beams. Here's where I want to put/hang them:-
