    Storing your bike in Boston

    Hey everyone,
    One of the biggest problems I have with riding my bike in the city is trying to figure out where to put it when not in use. I have very limited space in my apartment and I'd prefer not to leave my bike outside to the elements. There are currently 3 bikes in my apartment cluttering any free space we have. Any solutions? My landlord does not allow us to drill holes in the wall.
    Thanks!

    get some of those gravity type two up racks that have a foot that makes contact with the floor, and a clamp or extension pole to meet the ceiling.

    I screwed J hooks in the ceiling joists and hung them upside down.

    My last 2 bikes have small wheels the wheel does take up more space when Bigger..
