    I need a vertical bike mount. Can't make holes in walls.

    I need to store a bike with limited space. I would like to hang it on a wall vertically.
    Difficulty: I can't drill any holes.

    I already own a gravity rack and it has 2 bikes on it, but I lack the room for another horizontal solution.

    my ESP seems to be out of service today, so not knowing what is what, why dont you buy some 2X4s and some drywall screws and create something maybe something that wedges against the floor and the ceiling??

    Make it wide enough for 4 so that you have a place for n+1 or a friends bike.

    You can use this as a pattern for a four-bike vertical rack, substituting inexpensive hardware store hooks and 2x4s or 2x6s for the metal. The rack itself is 75" wide and 25" deep, although with bikes on it, it can be nearly twice that depth, depending on saddle height.

    In my experience with only road bikes, I found I need only 16" between the hooks horizontally, but then I need 12" between them vertically. Although if you alternate hanging them front wheel, back wheel, front wheel, back wheel, you can move the hooks closer together both horizontally and vertically.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    There's also this:

    It'll hold up to 6 bikes. I've got 6 on mine;it takes up about 50x54"(the rack's footprint is smaller,but the wheels and bars stick out). If you only hung 2-4 bikes on it,it wouldn't be too big a deal to get them on off. Also has the advantage that you can easily move it if you redecorate or want it in another room.
