Thinking of storing the bike(s) outside for easier access in the garden. So few questions... •Will they rust outside with a cover over them? •What type of cover should I buy, from where (in UK) •I plan to lock them to a wall, can't be seen from anywhere, what/where can I get a fixing for a wall to lock the bikes to. Thanks

1.Covered or not, steel and aluminum will corrode if stored in a non-temperature & humidity controlled environment...i.e. outdoors. A cover will help to slow that process and give you more time to clean and lubricate the parts likely to rust.

3. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/us/en/oxford-brute-force-ground-wall-anchor-lock/rp-prod8495 There are many other types and styles of anchors available to you. Google up "Wall Lock Theft Anchors" and/or take a trip down to your local Home Depot, Lowes or favorite UK hardware store.

Well currently they are stored in a shed, which although maybe rain proof, is still not sealed, as in air/cold/frost could get in. They are not expensive bikes, just family ones, but I'd use them more if easier access. I can't store indoors, the reason I asked the question. Thanks
