    Best way to store my bikes on the garage wall?

    I have a to get my bikes out of the way in the garage.
    I am looking for the best way or system to store my bikes on the garage wall which are concrete block. Any ideas as to pros and cons will help me decide on what I should by. I have 2 road bikes and two hybrids.

    Wheel hangers work well. They're inexpensive and efficient, but your problem may be in attaching it to concrete block. You'll probably have to attach them with masonry screws.

    Another simple way is to install plastic coated hooks from the ceiling or roof trusses. Actually, I screwed a 2X4 at right angles to the joists so I could space the hooks however I wanted. Think a little about the spacing or the handlebars will hit one another. I use additional hooks to hang spare wheels and tires between my bikes.

    Yeah. There are masonry screws that come with an 1/8" masonry bit at Loews, Home Depot, etc.. The screws I've used are blue colored. Drill the hole in the block and the screws screw in nicely and will support quite a bit of weight.

    Rubbermaid offers a Track and hook system, in 5 foot sections,
    + multiple sorts of hooks ,
    so the space between bikes can also be utilized to hang up other stuff..
    they hang the bikes vertically from a wheel.

    After hanging, on the tracks hooks can be slid sideways,
    to flexibly, pack more stuff in a smaller space ..

    I've had several since 1999 but have settled on my beloved 2001 Litespeed Tuscany and my latest, a 2013 Cannondale CAAD 10.

    If you don't want to drill holes in the concrete, try something like this.
