    Putting a bike in the basement?


    Just curious how difficult this is...

    I'm looking for a new apartment, and it seems like finding a garage is going to be expensive and/or difficult. If sticking it in the basement isn't that hard it would be a nice solution.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Putting a bike in the basement?

    It depends what type of access to the basement you have. I wouldn't want to go riding in and out of a bulkhead, lol. My basement level has a ground-level door....so I just put a little ramp outside and ride it right into my spare livingroom. I can't use it as fulltime storage, only in the winter...because I have to ride through the back yard, past everyone else's units (hehehe) to get to mine.

    Got a rubbermaide Big Max shed 8'x8' just snaps together held together with 12 screws and is pretty sturdy. Fits the bike nice during the summer

    Putting a bike in the basement?

    Thanks for the advice guys. I appreciate it. I think I'll look for a place with a walk in basement if possible. I don't mind keeping my bike outside during the summer, I just want it indoors for the winter.

    There ya go. I've stored bikes outside for 4 years no, with no problems because of it. You just have to work harder to keep it clean, that's all.

    Putting a bike in the basement?

    I keep my two bikes in the basement so the wife can park in the garage. If you can find something that is easy to take the bike in and out why not do it. The bike will stay clean all winter.
