Wheel storage idea

I've joined the wonderful world of gravel bikes where it is de rigeur to have two sets of wheels, one to wash and one to wear, isn't it?

I've been pondering where to store these and the issue of rotating stored tyres as they have sealant in them.

It dawned on me that there is a missing product - I want a wheel rack where I can have a rear thru-axle attached to the wall, pop the rear wheel on, then fix a front thru-axle on to that and hey-bingo - compact wheel storage that doesn't mark the rims takes up one wheel of wall and you can spin the wheels to pass the time or redistribute sealant.

Time for a crowd-funder?

    These would be ideal for security in the garage, and out and about for our bikes lost two in the past.

    But if it doesn't look like a car's going to pull up, you find someone in the same-coloured top as you and make them give you their bike.

    Agreed on that, he was definitely part of my first week plans! Not to mention my French riders team - that is in tatters without Le Coq!
