So, I think that these are a great space saving idea. I really do. My wife dictates all terms on the appearance and care of the inside of our home. I'm not even allowed to let bicycles touch the ground, or the walls, or any object within the house...while on their way directly to the basement workshop. Or else...well...I don't want to think about it.

Oh man, that sounds rough. I've got my Trek TX700 on a bike stand up in our loft for all to see - my wife could care less.

Those hangers look pretty clever. You would definitely want to hit a stud or use a good expansion anchor though. For the wall, it would be pretty simple to pad with a chair leg felt pad, piece of wine cork, scrap of carpet pad...even a post-it note would probably work.
I just use hooks in the ceiling joists in the unfinished basement.

My walls weren't long enough to where I could hit a stud and the expansion anchor that came with them sucked
so I went to Lowes and bought some that would hold up to 69 lbs. and they are rock solid.
