    How do you store your bike? (Pictures please)

    I live in a small-ish apartment and have a small-ish office in downtown vancouver. I don't leave my bike outdoors unless it's only going to be there for a short time. What clever solutions do people have for storing their bikes indoors? I've seen all sorts of clever and beautifully designed things out there but does anyone actually own any of them?

    I have plenty of space in the garage; but I keep my bikes in the roomy basement.
    At work; I tried keeping my bike under my desk. But that was a pain in the bottom
    since I have to drag the bike up to our offices. Most of the time my bike(folder or
    roadbike) is left inside the locker/changing room:

    Sorry, I have no pics but here goes: one wall of Elfa storage system in our small-ish garden storage, with bike hooks for all our bikes. You hang the bike from the front wheel, as if you'd ridden it up the wall. We hang lighter bikes higher up, heavier city bike type bikes lower. Because adjacent bikes hang at different height, they can be more tightly spaced next to each other.

    At home, my bike is leaned against a wall in the front hallway of my townhouse. Because I can. Yeah, it's in the way when I'm going to the kitchen, but who cares, it's my place and I can do what I want. I had lived by myself for years, but now that I'm married, my wife (who also rides) is OK with it, she knows how much I love my bike!

    At work, my bike is on a hook in the bike room. Unlike most people, I hang it by the rear wheel, rather than the front. This is so water doesn't run into the lower headset race from the forks on rainy days.

    Looking for a photo from the bike room... Thousands of photos of my bike since 2009, but very few of the bike room, on the hook...

    Mines on her kickstand by the front door. My roommates Madone is on a wall rack. My other roommates medici is leaning on the couch, the gt Avalanche is in the corner by the *** safe, the women's khs 300 is leaning on the dining room table. The gt 29r, tandem and folding bike are in the garage along with another women's trek mountain bike.

    The crosscheck is at the bike shop. And my older mtb is at my dad's house. Maybe I'll bring it home this weekend.

    We have 4 people who own bicycles in this house. Our downstairs looks like a bike shop, paintball store and rc plane/Copter store.

    No wonder people say our house is a mess

    The wall hangers are the just cheap ones from Canadian Tire, the mountain bikes are on a stand we got used off craigslist. My wife's road bike is hanging from the ceiling since she's not riding it, and my touring / commuter usually hangs out on the tool stand. If we were to move I'd do something else (like what Piratebike has done, but if you're going N+1, then the bike storage seems to go the same way.

    Just on the kickstand in the garage, along with other family bikes. I'm not sure if I'll get a kickstand on my next bike which means I'll have to find a rack or something for it when it's parked in there. I'm looking to get some hooks for a couple of the bikes that don't get ridden (we should just get rid of them altogether).

    The garage is pretty big, but there's not much wall space because of things like big extension ladders on the walls, garden implements, etc. along the sides, and a workbench across most of the back wall.

    I have a Saris Bike Bunk in my wee studio apartment. I have two bikes on the bunk, with the third on its kickstand in front of it.

    Against the wall in the office vs. hanging in the garage at home.

    Mine hang upside down by their wheels from hooks in the garage ceiling during winter, and lean on kickstands *gasp!* on the garage floor when they need to be available to ride during good weather.

    Just in the garage on kick stand pointing out. Quick u-turn inside when arriving.

    If i had more than one, i'd prolly look into a rack, but i ride so often a rack would prolly get irritating.

    Sadly when my new bike arrives it will be locked & tied it so no one takes it..

    Hooks screwed to ceiling joists in the basement. Seldom used bikes hang by one wheel there, alternating directions.

    Hooks screwed to ceiling of tiny garage. Weekend bikes hang upside down there.

    The daily used bikes lean on each other or on kickstands in the garage.

    No bikes permitted in the house, sadly.

    My ex got the dining table in the divorce. All my bikes are parked in the dining room and each bike has a carpet runner to absorb the dirt.
