Indoor cover.

What is everyone using for a indoor cover? Did the search function and not much showed up. I like keeping the bikes covered during winter. Thanks.

I bought a generic nylon cover from Wal-Mart. It breathes a lot so condensation will not build up but it will keep the dust etc off.

Do any of you guys roll the bike over cardboard or a plastic floor cover?
Concrete holds moisture right? So moisture lifts up to the bike...

I do. I put a plastic tarp down 1st.
I raise it with a flat scissor jack under about the middle of the frame tubes, put 2 fitted blocks under each end of the jack and let it down and rest it on the jack and blocks.
1 year i had another cruiser outside in winter. rolled it over a tarp then pulled it up like a taco shell around it (open at the top -then put a breathable cover cover over it).
IMHO: Depending on where it is stored, there is some helpful effect to a basic vapor seal helping block ground moisture.
I am obsessive...Winter storage I like it off the ground, no weight on tires, shocks, etc
Moving it around once in a while if stored on the ground don't hurt I guess.
