Clang bang bong

I have so many bikes in my small apartment that I can no longer open the bathroom door all the way. Do I have a problem?

If you are trim enough to fit through the partially opened door, no problem.

I sympathize, my place is small and I also have too many bikes.. not usually enough for your problem but it has actually happened before to me >.< I assume wall hooks are out of the question?

Hooks on the wall and ceiling will pack them in tighter than sitting on the floor.

you can lay some other wood with smaller screws into wall studs, then
screw the thicker lag screw hooks into the wood ..

spackle covers past sins well..

You definitely have a problem... your apartment is too small.
