    I put this here because I have no clue where it ought to go- but I have purchased $26 worth of 1" PVC and "T" connections to create a bicycle/MAB parking rack. If this works, this purchase will create parking for four bikes with the capacity to add more. Construction starts this weekend- yes, there will be photos.

    as promised

    Here we are- it turns out I miscalculated by two lengths of pipe, but here you see the pattern. Easy to figure out- the uprights are 30", the spreaders are 12" and the rest is cut to fit. Figure 10 "T" joints and one 20' pipe per bike, minimum of two. This took me about a half hour to do and was no challenge whatsoever
