Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

So, how is everyone storing their bikes?

I just bought some of those cheap hooks to hang my bike from the ceiling, so I wouldn't have to keep it propped against the wall in my hallway. I'm curious, what do you guys do with yours? Anything fancy? post some pics!

just a standard hook in the ceiling. back wheel on hook, front wheel against the wall.
Having 7 room mates in a 1050 square foot apartment, with 5 bikes means getting as much stuff up off the floor as possible.

I use two hooks in the ceiling of my basement, one for each wheel. Keeps it out of the way and allows me to work underneath.

I definitely understand that...my roommates and I ran into that issue with bikes lining the both sides of the hallway, so we all bought some hooks. Our place looks soooo much cleaner now.

Usually just flip it upside down and put it next to my front door. No one uses the living room, so even though I'm blocking the entrance it doesn't matter.

i TOTALLY posted this a while ago and had the same idea. Have a buddy who does great wood work, and wanted a classy bike wall mount.

Love it!

Mine and my wife's bikes take up the entirety of what is supposed to be our office and my f/g leans on the wall in the living room next to the TV.

We've got a spare room at home that has been dubbed "the bike room". Plus, the Bikeage warehouse room is at our disposal for storage and building/working on bikes - even though I still tend to keep way too many parts and tools at home.

Two on the wall in the bedroom, one on the wall above the work bench, other three strewn about.

I live in a big apartment with little furniture.

Too cool, man! You could even bolt a clock onto the top of it, or something.

Also, I'm a fan of that tire clearance.
