Bike Shelter

Good evening everyone. This is my first post on the forum. I need to get my bike out of a friend's garage and stored outside my house. Does anyone remember the name of the wooden "up and over" bike store/garage that was on display at the show at the NEC last year. It was wood and worked on a pivot lifting the roof to allow the bike in?

I liked the idea and it would be just the job. Thanks for your help.

Mike :unsure:

I can't remember the name.

I was allowed to try lifting it up and down, to see if I could manage it without my shoulders popping out. I thought it was one of the best ones I'd seen as it's so solid and we live in a really windswept area, so the canvas jobbies are no good here, even pegged down.

Might have a look at that meatl one, too. I'd still like to park mine under cover if I can find the right shelter.

The only problem I can see with the metal ones is the width. Once on side stand you wouldnt have much room to clamber out :unsure:

Beelady,

Being a vertically challenged chap, I tried the one at the show and it was really easy to use and looked okay. I think it was quite cheap too! Like you I live in a bleak weather area and the tents would be useless here. I'm also told that it may be necessary for planning permission to put a metal shelter up in my front garden as it counts as a permanent structure - which it seems does not apply to wood????????

I can't find a list of the exhibitors last year because the firm would be on that!

Mike
