Asgard Bike Storage - Access Cycle Store Review
"There comes a point in many cyclists lives where even they realise that they are pushing it with the amount of bikes they have in the house. A very tolerant wife had let my collection grow but even I knew that things were getting cosy indoors. And a load of redecorating prompted a search for somewhere outside to store some of them.
Living in London it was always going to be a balance of cost, size in the already small back garden and security offered. As ever the internet gave lots of options but Asgard seemed to offer the best balance between the three.

My first recommendation is not to attempt anything in weather like this".

You know when things are right, the tighten together nicely and there's a satisfaction in knowing that the connections are tight".
Linked with this is the fact that the screws tap out the threads that they are being screwed into...... <more> Read the full Access bike store review here.
