Three bikes on a Stolmen
Materials: 2 Stolmen telescoping posts, 2 Stolmen clothes rails, 10 Stolmen end fixtures, and 6 Stolmen hooks
Description: Well, I got the idea from this IKEA Hackers post awhile back.
I live in New York City and have three bikes, e.g. the top and bottom one are mine and the middle bike belongs to my lovely girlfriend. I felt the same way as the poster of the Ikea "Stolmen Bike Rack" in regards to a non-ugly bicycle rack, but also needed something for three bikes. Sooooo in all fairness, I just hacked what the Stolmen Bike Rack poster did.
We have 10'6" ceilings so the posts have no problem in their reach. It took awhile to strategically place the hooks to hang the bikes parallel to the ground, but that was the only real challenge. Just follow IKEA's pictogram instructions for assembly. The beauty of this "hack" is that all the parts and tools come from Ikea, even in the same section of the same aisle! The only components outside of IKEA was the adhesive felt pads for the Stolmen hooks to prevent scratches.
