comment Suggestions for outdoor commercial (security/parking) stands
@Ian - yes. The area is not a car parking space, but an area with reasonably unusual constraints (which aren't really relevant to the question so were omitting to keep it general for hopefully wider interest). Sheffield stands are good, but still require a relatively wide footprint (i.e. a bike length) in comparison to some. It could be that we use a mixed solution - @Gary.Ray points to an interesting alternative we hadn't thought of before this question.

+1 "you will get much better 'value for money' if you buy pre-built" true-dat. But, of course, is rarely why people build their own.
