I've just moved into a new apartment - a tad small but I'm in the progress of blinging it up with some nice furniture & other stuff.

As it is, I reckon my bike (1/2 ti, 1/2 paint) will look well bling bling bo selecta kiss my face hanging over the mantlepiece or some such (and will rather handily save a bit of space). Anybody have any ideas on 'tasteful' ways to do this - the only options I've seen so far are bike stands or rather utilitarian shed/garage type options.

I'm guessing/hoping that given the bike bling on display on this site, someone will have done this before!

Cheers.

I thought the wooden display stands Kuota used at interbike were quite tasteful, inexpensive and easy to make. Especially coming from my eye as a carpententer, industrial designer, interface designer, graphic artist, and all around anal-rententive sphincter-boy... (did I leave out Super-Poseur...?)

Finish plywood, veneer, some harware, and lexan plastic. quite nice. I would actually expand on this design, and lift it off the ground with some curvature to the bottom, and perhaps an oval plate that sits flat on the ground. Maybe angle it nose down like 10°

Actually make that 3° tilt... this thread peaked my interest, and I went back to my folder of images I shot at interbike.

This quick adobe illustrator drawing kinda explains what I had in mind using the same materials as the above pic. Classy, no? I bet I could make a batch of these and sell them... :D

This is WW, not carpentryforum.com. Maybe if you made if from carbon and 6/4 Ti + list the weight, then you'll get some comments :wink:

Are they expensive? They could also double as cyclocross barriers.

Very nice, I had been thinking of something similar lately.

These guys have a much pricier way of doing the same thing:

That thing really looks cool. Cause the bike looks like flying... But with watching some "homeimprovement" episodes I thing you can do something similar like that out of wood by yourself...
