Bicycle stands - advice/suggestions needed

I'm going to be moving into a new apartment in a few months time and will be taking my two (by then likely three) bikes with me. I've already decided that the bikes are going to be kept in the spare bedroom and looking for suggestions on what type of stand to get for them.

requirements:

- 2 bikes (both likely to be roadies)
- stable design for light maintance work
- space saving as much as possible

I have seen these 'gravity' design racks and wonder/worry about how stable they are: http://www.nashbar.com/profile.cfm?c...eid=&pagename=

Actually was looking more for a storage stand/rack. Guess the heading was a bit misleading. Need to find a solution to store a couple bikes in the corner of the spare bedroom / study in the apartment so my soon be be wife doesn't try to kick the bikes out of the place.

I just bought this rack from Performance, and I can attest that it's beautiful, simple design, compact, very well made, easy on the bike's finish, stable, and holds two roadies perfectly. Gotta love it.

i have a small one-bedroom apartment. I live with my gf and my dog. Not too much space left. This is what I use



the one holding the K2 mountain bike is a simple rack i bought from Target for 10 bucks.

The second one holding the roadie is a Delta rack that's designed to hold the bike by the wheel perpendicular to the wall. $14.99 at LBS

At Lowes, folding, $4.96

You need to find a stud or a use a good toggle bolt. I use mine for minor maintenance.
