    I don't have a good answer for you as far as a ready made one, but some PVC pipe, 4 "T" connectors, 4 90* elbow connectors and 4 end caps and you can make your own with some time. Cost will probably be on par with the one from Nashbar, but will be made in your garage, not China.... you don't even have to glue it, so if you have kids, let them get involved and make a family project out of it..... Now you have my wheels turning

    Thanks guys that's a great idea. Also, not being a plumber, is it the Splices I would need to make wider? And how wide would you make it?
    Thank you.

    The tire your are running on your ride whether it be Larry's, Endomorphs, Nate's, BFL's, HuskerDu's or Black Floyds and what psi they are likely to stay at will predicated the length of the straight PVC pipe cuts.

    Measure the width of the tires at the psi that your storing it at regularly and add an 1.5" to the straight pipe and cut. On 1/2" PVC fittings the extra 1.5" will be what is inserted into the female portion of the Elbows and T's. PVC is dead easy to work with, affordable and you can dry fit the pieces before any glueing if necessary.

    This is one of those things that makes you say, "Now why didn't I think of that?"
