Finally a good use for discount store BSOs.


Possible problem is that bike frames are shit easy to hacksaw through... being made with thin wall thicknesses to be light weight


Could fill up the old frames with something to deter hacksaw theft and weigh down the frames so they don't get moved as easily. Trick is keeping it stable, maybe with some end braces, but I like it very much.


I love it and want one!

One solution to the weight issue would be to pour cement into the frames. Would weigh the rack down and make sawing through it a fool's errand.


I subscribe to the idea of pouring some cement on the frames. That way, hacksaw thieves will really have a hard time cutting the metal pipes.


Thank you for information

Although I agree with the idea of filling the tubing with material to deter hacksaws, I'm not seeing how best to do that on the smaller framestay tubing, not practically.
Perhaps you'd need to flip the script? Make a form around the thinner tubing and put the cement/whatever AROUND the thinner tubing? The thicker tubing is easier to access to fill with de-theft products.
