Default Outdoor bike cover

If you go to just about any furniture store, you can ask (or dumpster dive) for the padded "bags" that sofas and love seats come shipped in.

I work at one, so they are easy for me to get, and I use them for everything from my bikes to my big bike to my lawn tractor.

The kind you want is the heavy plastic with a closed cell foam liner.

If it's outdoors, (I keep my stuff in the "barn" and it keeps the bird s**t off of them) use some old chain (swingset chain or heavier) and fold up and tape the chain into the bottom edge of the bag. If using indoors as a dust cover, omit the chain.

Default Re: Outdoor bike cover

Great idea!!! I would tell eveyone to keep their bikes covered, or inside at night.
I keep all my bikes in our garage.
If you look at the pics of my Bomber bike, the wheels & fork were brand new just a couple of years ago!
Todays cheap chrome rusts very easy! (The original Schwinn chrome is holding up very well!)
