looking for feedback on how everyone stores their bike racks?

Mine are on the floor, they're kind of out of the way. I'm yet to come up with a better solution.

I hang mine on a hook from the mezzanine, or leave it on the camper

Yeah, you'll need it at those pressures. I have not and will never take any notice of these controlled pressure test experts.  ;)

I'm going to Derby in March with a mate, fingers crossed with COVID. I thought I'd drag the MTB out today and take it for a blast on the local trails. All the road riding I have been doing has made me soft, my bike handling was atrocious. Need to get some more time on the MTB before the trip.

Fitness and pedalling was ok, hill repeats working there, it was more the roadie 'oh is that a pebble I need to get out of the way' mentality, rather than the MTB just send it mentality :)
