    Hanging the Fatties

    Currently in Big Sky in our small condo. No garage, not much room, but got these wall hangers from Amazon. $15 each and they fold up when not in use. When we're not here with the bikes will make a good ski clothes rack.

    I have also included pictures that will appear upside down in the Northern Hemisphere, but will possibly better for our Aussie and Kiwi friends.

    Pretty cool. The fat bike is the only one I want to hang in the garage, the rest can go in the shed

    Big Sky, Australia?

    I use the large Park wood screw hooks in my garage ceiling. I know you don't have a garage. I do and there's no way my wife would allow me to bring a filthy fattie (of either type) into the house.

    Yep, Einstein's theory was just proved. Evidently 2 black holes hovered over Montana.

    The room is too small for the camera phone to capture the whole wall, thus the necessity to use the brackets in the first place. I could probably cut a hole in the adjoining condo wall and ask to see if I could film from their unit. If I was into selfies, I could probably use a go-pro.

    Hopefully that photo works. The fat bike now goes where the mtb on the left is, but I don't put the front wheel on it.

    One of those hooks protrudes from the wall, and I put the stem on it. Works great.

    That looks like a very good alternative for more than 2 bikes. We only have the 2 and they now protrude into the room 26". If we hung them from the ceiling they would have jutted out 43", plus the fact my wife would have had a hard time getting the bike up to the ceiling by herself. She can easily lift the lower bike off the racks. Thanks for adding to the thread.

    Thought a link would be appropriate and a price reduction to boot.
