    Being nubes to road bikes we did not realize that CF bikes could not have a kick stand. I want to buy or build a bike stand for two bikes. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I just cant see leaning a nice bike like that against the wall.

    Well, you can buy something like this or build something like this. For the self made stands there are more at instructables.com Hope this helps out some, if not sorry.

    I built one of these for my bike... DIY Home Bicycle Repair Stand
    I think you would be able to make it work for two bikes... one above the other.

    PLEASE, don't stand it up against a wall! It cost a Comcast repairman $1400 to replace the frame on my 2 month old Giant

    Here is a link to the write up I made for the Bike rack I made a while back. There is a picture of the design I took my idea from in the post so you can see how it can be expanded to hold multiple bikes. I also included the measurements of all the parts. I has worked very well for me.

    Sleek looking rack, that looks like it works real well. I can see a project sometime in the future!
