      I thought I’d step up and share an idea that I came across, it’s a relatively easy and inexpensive way to make your own Bike rack using some pvc pipe.
      You need the following supplies:

      20 qty (1″ T’s)
      14 qty 1″ elbows
      2 qty 23 1/8″ x 1″ PVC Pipe Pieces
      20 qty 16″x1″ diameter PVC Pipe Pieces
      8 qty 12″x1″ pvc pieces
      14 qty 2 1/8″x1″ pvc pieces

      pvc glue

      This is alot cheaper if you buy a 16-20′ section and cut it down to size. I recommend a pair of pvc pipe cutters, they’re about $5 and worth every penny.

      Follow the image measurements to see how to put it together. You can cement it if you want to, or if you want it to be portable, you can leave it alone so it will come apart easily.

      It will easily fit 5-10 bikes, depending on what size the bicycle is. Obviously kids bikes have smaller front tires, it also holds scooters!
