For some reason, our posts on ways to hang bikes on the wall are extremely popular, if only to give people an outlet to complain about the cost of stuff produced by artisan designers for small markets, when they really want to pay IKEA prices.

But even I had a bit of trouble defending this one, although it was cheaper than most I have shown. Commenter Chris noted:

Wait, what? $90 for a couple lengths of closet rod from the hardware store, plus whatever mysterious mounting hardware they use? I love how they don't describe the mounting hardware, picture it, or tell you whether or not your walls will work (Some will, some won't! Send us your money and find out!)
