Bike storage recommendations

Hi,

I've done some cursory searching but haven't hit a thread that addresses this, so here goes.

I now have four bikes in my garage, along with two cars. I don't intend to have more than four, but I never really intended to have four either. I'm wondering about storage devices--especially ones where you can hang bikes from the ceiling--unless that's a big no-no.

So I'm all ears on hearing what others have tried and/or recommend.

TIA.

Lowes, and Harbor Freight both sell a pulley device that allows you to hang a bike off the ceiling of your garage, they work well. I'm sure your LBS can get one for you, but you'll pay more.

Four bikes hanging in the garage. Two bikes on the garage floor. The cars are in the driveway making the house look occupied.

Thanks! Just checked HF and they have them for $9/each. Almost 100% positive reviews too.

You can buy hooks that screw into the rafters (no pulleys). Easy enough to hang a bike by the front wheel. It helps quite a bit.
