DIY wheel hangers

These little guys are the best space saver since I started hanging frames on the wall. Usually my house is covered in bike parts (and that's still true) but the eight wheels at the foot of my bed were always in the way. Yesterday I finally got sick of 'em, and noticing the unused space in my closet went to town on some spare hangers. Easiest mod ever.

Just cut the hanger in to pieces with any old tool. Then bend 'em to the desired shape. I find it's easier to make lots of little bends than a big curve at once.

Then hang all those spare rims that need to be trued where your "nice" shirts are supposed to be (if you actually had any). Sure there are other ways to store your wheels, but this one only cost me a 5 cent hanger and 15 minutes of my time. I like that.
