Considering the environmentally conscious side of cyclist culture, many bikers are likely able to appreciate the value of recycling discarded materials and making things themselves. The DIY Wall Bike Hanger is a project that may well appeal to much of this demographic, as it makes use of retired two-wheeler components and requires just a bit of time and a few standard tools.

Kyle Wilson walks the handyman through the process of taking an old pair of drop handlebars, dressing them with a protective wrap of an inner tube and plugging wine bottle corks into the ends. He also describes how this part is mounted onto a metal stem and wall flange, and offers suggestions for how to anchor the DIY Wall Bike Hanger against the wall with sufficient space beneath to park another bicycle.
