Need Indoor Stand, What to Get?

Looking at buying a stand so I can store my bikes off the floor. I just moved in with three other cyclists and between the four of us we have six bikes. We want space for our four main bikes in the front and the others are going to be stored in the garage. What I'm looking for is one of those gravity racks that just lean up against the wall and that way a big rack doesn't take up the whole room. I'd probably buy two and just set them next to eachother. Anyways...don't know if this is exactly the right forum but any suggestions on racks? When I searched all I could find was people using trainers and bike repair stands...not just storage stands which I need. Thanks in advance!

I've got the same problem. Six bikes live in my apartment. They take up a lot of room.

This, or the same idea with a strip of wood across the top and the hook coming down at the opposite angle, in a corner, are pretty space friendly. Especially with shelving on top.

mec.ca sells a few different kinds of racks for bike storrage - you can probably find someone in the States that sells them. Here are links to some of the ones MEC carries:

Delta Michelangelo 2-Bike Gravity Rack

Delta Leonardo Single-Bike Rack

I like the Gear Up rack. Holds up to 4 bikes on one minimalist rack.

+1 on the Delta Michelangelo. Just search the forums for feedback on this rack.

Try searching for "bicycle" on "www.smarthome.com". They have a few products that are like what you're looking for.
