My only question is, will I be able to install it in an underground parking garage? Anyone have any expierience with this? Yes I know I have to ask the landlord, but I just want to see if anyone has it done it in the underground parking of their building?

Thanks

hmmm I dont understand? isnt an underground parking garage just a big garage? I dont see any logical reason why you couldnt install it in there as long as you dont take over anyones parking stalls doing it?

Its not the actual physics of installation I'm worried about. Its if I will actually be allowed to do it. I just wanna know if people have, and if they had any trouble getting permission. Obviously its gonna vary between buildings, but a little forsight never hurt anyone.

prolly have to buy it from a dealer/vendor of his. Then Jay or one of his crew will do the install. Go for the 'axle guards' also...a few bucks more but then they scum can't take your back wheel off.

definitely talk to your strata or landlord first since you will be drilling into the ground

Yea Jay aka Twin Grins is the owner/manufacturer of the bike brace. Im just a happy customer.

I think to this date Jay said my strata was the hardest one to get approval. I had to go through so many hoops to get approval. I had to submit pictures, submit dimesions, I had to agree to placing a cone in it when the bike is gone, etc. Their concern was that when the bike is gone someone may trip over it and sue the strata. But I said how is that any different from someone walking into a pillar? So we agreed on the cone. Then they dicked around for a few weeks and I started to get worried cuz my new ride was coming in. Well from previous experience I used to push the bike in my basement and I found out that it voids everyones fire insurance, not just mine. So when it came down to it I kept that ace in my back pocket. I basically had to play hardball and told em if you dont approve of it, I will just keep the bike in my basement.... im sure the other owners would rather you let me install it than void their insurance. I got approved the next day. :D

Best couple hundred bucks you can spend on your bike IMO.

Ditto, about Jay (Twin Grins). His service is top rate, and the product once installed will definitely help you sleep better at night.

Stratas are a pain in the butt. No matter what you do someone always has way too much time on their hands and will undoubtedly complain. So begins the long drawn out letter-writing campaign. Maybe just install it out of the way, ie. as close to the wall as possible, and wait to see if any reactions come. Jay can remove it as easily as the installation.

Definitely do a search like Adam suggested. There was a good thread about what can happen if you drill holes in certain types of concrete and the ensuing shit storm.

hey Steve, good to see you have upgraded to a Suzuki Swift :laughing


Don't forget you can always mount the Brace to a wall. With my single-sided swingarm and low mounted rear brake, this was the easiest mount for me - and my neighbours, who like the fact they cannot trip over it!
