bike storage solution

    Renovating old house in Dublin 8, which involves back extension and landscaping of back garden. Large front garden not being touched by builders.

    I am a cyclist and will be living with cyclists and want secure storage solution. Any suggestions welcome! Thanks!

    A house near us has a small shelter in the front garden. And 4-5 feet high and with a green roof. Almost completely hidden from view by the front hedge. Bikes seem to be locked to the corner posts. I think it looks like a great solution but maybe not for a very high value bike or in a particular theft prone area. A few others near us have combined wheelie bin covers and locked bike shelters of varying degrees of attractiveness depending on the finishes used.

    Thanks! I'm going to probably go with bike stands in poured concrete out the back (or bolted into concrete).

    I'm in the same situation, looking for a bike shelter thats not a big shed.

    I came across bikeshel the other day

    Bike Shel for Protective Bicycle Storage

    Not cheap and would need a concrete base

    About €1,500 for a 4 berth in basic black colour and €1,000 for the 2 berth in black
