Damn just checked out your photo's of the mat,Seeing I've been been riding my pushbike to work for 6 or so years and only swapped the tyres, front to rear to even the wear last month it's going to take a looong time to have enough old tyres to make a mat.They Sharpei's in the back of the wagon?

Well is call "Have Many friends at Many shops", besides I don't even like road bikes so I will take me forever to collect them..

Here is another Mat that I made long time ago, this time made of Mountain bike tires.




Detail of the corners.

Actually I build my counters in a very pennytech kind of way out of necessity since the shop walls turn into a 45deggre angle from about 3' feet high..

I start by drilling into the concrete with my massive percussion drill, then install a 2x4 "header" (about 3 1/2' high) and start to build the structure from there, the rest is all hold from that 2x4.

I have "diagonal columns" at about 3' intervals to make the whole structure super sturdy, in fact I have stand on the counters many times and it does not move at all..


Here is a over all view of the counters, sorry I don't have more current pictures of this parts, but you get the idea...

This is another very simple use of resources, big halogen reflector from one of does pedestal lamps that everybody used to have (and burn many houses too) and a old cheap tripod.

The idea is to use the corner (but it can be use on a flat wall too) to minimize the amount of wasted space and also use the legs of the tripod to locate the lamp head wherever you need it to be, even pointing into the corner (sorry I don't have a picture of that.)


At the "corner" on the current shop, not wasting any space on my busy walls.


The light in use as today, great light spread, even it it produce really drastic shadows..

Okay here is another one that fits into "Garage theme"

Very pennytech "bike lift", well table..

The idea is that you load the bike on the lift like this and then use a "Car jack" to lift the rear end until the table is horizontal or you can just use a ramp to load it up, even if is pretty step.


Very Simple to make, mostlly out of 4x4 plus a small piece of 1/2" plywood..
I'm a pretty bad carpenter but you get the idea, everything is made on a "Interface" level, so the glue and screws are secondary.


fully erect


It holds the Big Pig just fine..


Only improvement it needs in my opinion is a "real" wheel holder, because is a pain to strap the handlebars by your self (but it can be done)

Okay for now I'm out of trick, so please share your if you want to keep this topic going, or at least say something interesting..

Oh more Pictures HERE
