Thread: How do you park?

  1. #1

    Default How do you park?

    Hi everyone,

    Thinking of getting a bicycle to go around the neighbourhood for some exercise. But before I buy it, CFO wants to know where I'm going to park it in the confines of my small HDB apartment. I am therefore asking you all for ideas on:

    1) How and where you normally park your bikes? Void Deck or outside your front gate? How safe would it be
    2) How do you normally secure it? What locks/chains I should be getting
    3) Is it possible to keep your bike indoors? Do you recommend any kind of mounting?

    Any ideas would be great!

    Cheers,
    Sean.

    if u parking outdoors, get the cheapest bike..remove all quick release fixture with fixed type..a long chain will be nice to secure front and back wheels..

    Buy a season ticket and park in the car park..haha . Seriously, if the bike is expensive you may want to park inhouse, if it cheap then park outside the house and buy a chain to chain it lor

    Looks like if I want to get a resonably good bike, have to park inside leow. But must find some space. Just looking for storage ideas and possibilites.

    Have my end on a GIANT bike. Original price of 590 was reduced to 390. I would be sorry to buy it only to loose it to the karung guni man..

    I park mine in a spare room. There are too many things to steal and to chain it all down will look quite strange. quick release front and rear wheels, speed + cadence sensor, expensive carbon parts, etc.

    I just lean it against the wall, but looking to get either a work stand (like the ones the mechanics use), or a system where you have a metal pole going from your floor to the ceiling and movable hangars like this...

    All the bicycles in my house are kept in the balcony. I have a small stand that will hook up the rear frame, lifting the rear wheel off the ground, for my own bicycle. I'm thinking of getting a bicycle rack that supports itself by anchoring the ends to the floor and roof. This way I can hang 2 bicycles, one on top of the other.

    My bicycle is way too precious to me to leave it outside the house....

    I remember my friend has a rack at home to hang the bicycle near to the door. The rack was fitted to the wall. So after he cleans the bicycle, he would hang it on the rack.

    The rack sounds good. Something like a tripod for bicycles..
