    Bike storage solution needed

    Since I bought my Giant OCR1 in April, it's home has been leaning against the workbench in my garage. The 4 other bikes living in our garage have kickstands and/or hang from the rafters. What I really need is a bike rack in the garage. Any suggestions on how to store bikes neatly? Doesn't have to look great, just keep it safe and accessible.

    I have this rack. It is free standing, and will hold 4 bikes total, 2 on the top rack and 2 on the bottom.

    DG has the ideal solution and why keep an OCR1 in the garage. It should be in the lounge with spotlights highlighting the features of the bike. DG has a double stand to keep his bikes on. In fact he has two of them to keep all 4 of his bikes on. Just a pity that when he gets his new bike- He will have to get a 3rd stand.

    Actually, I never got the second stand because the seller flaked out on me. But I'm still looking for one!

    Screw some hooks into the ceiling and hang 'em. Better for the bikes too.

    I have nine bikes. I use these

    for the ones on the floor (usually about 4) and hang the rest.

    I like the idea of keeping it in what we would call the living room, but my wife may object - and I'd still require some device to keep the bike upright, although leaning it against the sofa would be better than the workbench.

    I have hooks all over the garage rafters, but that's for the bikes that don't get ridden or for winter storage - I don't want to hang my bike upside down every night (like a bat).

    Wall hooks are out - that would require wall space I like the nashbar stand that thomson posted - would double as a repair stand.

    One against the fireplace, two behind the couch. If the stable is up to four, then one is parked by the front door.

    Get a bike hoist if you have high enough ceilings. I got a couple on sale at Target for about $20.

    I think you should consider a room addition to your garage. A bike room, for example.
