outdoor verticle bike rack

I know it probrably does not exist. But I am looking for a bike rack that can store bikes with the front wheel up, space is an issue. There is room for about three bikes to be stored in a conventional rack with both wheels on the ground but a verticle rack would probrably increase that X 2.

Any Ideas. The $ky is not the limit on this. and these are for Walmart type bikes. This is outdoors too.

Add 2x4's as needed.

There are plenty of pics in this thread, which at the moment is just a few threads down the page from this one.

Thanks for the replys. I didn't see any outdoor verticle racks (as the title of this thread suggests) in any of those pics/links of the other thread. Looks as if I might have to go in the direction of AllenG's suggestion. although I think 2x4s might be a little too ghetto for this place.

I have a "good" problem at my apartment building, last year there were 4 bikes chained in some out of the way places. Now there are 15 bikes all over the place. I think they may even become an issue with fire inspections. The space is very limited on the property. One thing is that I have some "extra" parking spaces that I might shift over/convert to bycycle rack parking areas.

Right now I am just looking for ideas etc. I have some budget issues and I also cannot ignore what I have seen in the past: most people get a new bike, ride it for a short time and then do nothing but store it.
