Purchasing bike racks for a restaurant/cafe in Canberra

By barbiekini - 30 June 2011 17

I want to install bike racks in our cafe/restaurant to help cater for the cycling crowd.

But I have no idea where to start looking. 

Does anybody know where to buy them, or of anyone who can make them to order?

What’s Your opinion?

By the way @puggy and others, the Restaurant/Cafe/Bar is called Siren and it is located in the Gungahlin Town Centre on Anthony Rolfe Ave, right opposite the Police Station. Should be open in about 3 weeks.

An ‘Australian Standard’ for bike racks ? Really? Ridiculous.

Go and ask one of the bike shops in Lonsdale Street.
At the Bike Shed, (at the northern end) , they had a fab shop in Queanbeyan make them up for them. – They told me who made them …I have forgotten …Go and ask them- Glen.

Thanks so much for the tips everybody, I’m sure I can find something suitable from all these recommendations 🙂

You can buy a 5 bike freestanding rack on ebay for $170 delivered.

I’d be inclined to find a welder/fabricator in the yellow pages. Find the design using google images, give him the wheel width you want, and the number of bikes you want it to hold. I’m sure a fabricator could put something together quickly. Then have the thing powder coated (cash in hand) at a place in whatever colour they have in the machine at the time.

Where is is cafe/restaurant? I’d be a keen customer, as long as I see my patented “No brakes, no service” sign. Die fixie, die!

this one should be pretty cheap – TAMS obviously aren’t using it…

… Or this rack would be good – and should be cheap as!

I just Googled “multiple bike rack -car -towbar” and ads for suppliers popped up on the left hand side.

The results also told me that there is even an Australian Standard for bike racks (AS 2890.3-1993, Parking facilities – Bicycle parking facilities)

If you have the right area that would allow it to work (without people running into them or hitting their heads on them), I like the hanging bike racks, as at Cafe Racer in Melbourne.

I’d investigate the TMC option as well, but I know my old workplace has used pre-built options are available from Bicycle Victoria see

Id suggest the Tuggeranong Metal Centre, they can make up metal items such as that. Another possibility may be to contact CIT or a college that has a metalwork department and see if theyre interested in having the students do the job..

Alternatively, find a mate with a welder.
