Outdoor Bike Storage Shed

by belinda342

Want a way to keep your bikes safe and protected from the weather, but don't want to spend a fortune? Check out this portable outdoor bike storage shed.

Most bikes will rust if left out to the elements. A sad but true fact of life that. But what is a person to do? There aren't many of us with the space inside our homes to bring our bikes in.

Well, with an outdoor bike storage shed, your bikes can be protected from all the wind, rain, and snow that happens throughout the day...and night. Your bike will not only last longer, it will look nicer too!

Bicycle Storage Shed: The Details

This portable (and now easy to assemble) shed is much like a tent.  It is constructed of a heavy weight UV and Weatherproof Polyester material.  

If you are concerned about keeping your bikes safe from theft, simply assemble the shed close to a pole or fence.  There is a velcro opening in the back that will allow you to secure your bike to the outside pole.

When completely assembled, this shed will comfortably hold 2 or 3 adult sized bikes.  Of course, if you don't have bikes to store, there are plenty of other uses for this handy shed as well.  Garden tools or pool supplies could have a handy home here.



ProActive Company Improves Design

I love it when a company listens to its customers!  This company did just that.  Customer reviews were pretty good for the original YardStash shed, but some buyers complained that it wasn't all that easy to set up.  Some said it was downright difficult.

So in August of 2012, the manufacturer implemented EZClips.  This makes the set up a breeze.  One person can now easily assemble the YardStash II in well under 20 minutes!  Now that is progress...and great customer service.


3 Tips to Stop Your Bike From Being Stolen

  1. Always park in your bike in a well-lit area that is well populated with people passing by.
  2. Always use a good bike lock.  The U-type of lock is best, as cables can be cut.
  3. Put your bike away in a safe location at home, and LOCK it.  Yes, even at home.

Another tip that might not help you keep your bike from being stolen, but that might help you recover it if it is:

Photograph your bike and record all of its information, such as make, model number, and frame number.

Great idea for those who have no room for a storage shed. I also like that you included a blurb about keeping your bike from being stolen.

This is a great and affordable idea for those of us who don't have storage. I can just see this on the backs of patios and decks of apartments everywhere. Great idea thanks for bringing this to our attention. :)K

It's outside under a tarp. I like this idea. And I just got the bike and still need to get a lock. Yes, even at home.
