I have all of them leaning against the wall in the side garage. Once the weather starts getting cold and the snow starts to fly I move them to a spare room in the house basement.

Thjis would be me if I could get away with it. I had my bike just leaning against a credenza in our “dining room.” My wife wasn’t a fan, so I thought about storing it covered on our terrace, but worried about the weather. We live in a tiny 500sqft apartment in Brooklyn, so options are limited.

Luckily, our building has a fob access only bike room in the basement, which is where I store my bike now. Mine’s the Colnago.

In Transition...

Right now, my bikes are mostly in boxes, awaiting transport to TX.


Formerly, we suspended four from a Saris rack that had been left in our home by the prior owner.


The mountain bikes were on pulleys for easier up and down.


The two road bikes that were queued up for riding stood on the floor nearest the garage door.

Two more hung on a floor-standing rack in my bike workshop in the basement, which has been taken down and boxed for the move.

It's a bizarre coincidence, really. Yes, it's an actual thing that the USPS will provide materials for shipping cremated remains to their final destination. The materials come in a complete and well-thought out kit, and yes, there is special handling. These particular boxes were used and are now waiting for use in our move. No need to destroy or waste them. PG

I have seven bikes and I'm fortunate to have a large basement. There's plenty of room down there so I just set up an inexpensive dual sided rack on top of some inexpensive pads. If you have the room, this works perfectly: very secure, instant accessibility. My fatbike doesn't fit in it, though,

I live in a very small apartment on the 24th floo4r, so my bikes stay locked up in the corridor outside near the elevators.

I pretty much keep them all in the bike cave although in years past there was some overflow. Several methods. Basic 2 bike stands where I alternate then front to back to fit the most in. Then I have a few on the wall hanging by simple pedal hangers I got off Amazon. One custom bike hanger with built in storage, a 3 bike display from an old bike shop and finally two hanging on a wall using some hangers I made with old handlebars and pipe fittings.


The basic room.


Homemade hangers





The front is hinged and then there's storage inside


One of the pedal hangers


This stand holds 3 bikes. You can widen it as needed to fit the bikes and the supports for the BB are reversible so you can face the bikes either way.


Back in the day (last year) I had over 30 bikes stored in this room. Got a bit nuts.

There are 8 underneath all those covers. Tandem, 2 roadies, 2 utility, 2 mtbs, and a fg. The fg gets used the most so it has easiest access. That yellow jacket hanging there is my J&G rain jacket. It's pretty rainy here in Wellington, NZ.
