Bicycle Wall mount

So I have 2 bikes right now that I need to get out of my parents house and over here to my apartment. I really don't have the room for them inside but I do have a garage. Seems good except my garage floods when it rains (just like an inch or so) so I don't want to leave the bikes on the floor. Hence my post title, wall mount... for the garage.

Does someone make some sort of wall mount to hold 2 bikes (they are both round top tube), with a lock on it though? My garage door doesn't lock and I would hate to see them disappear.

Lowe's (home improvement store) has a section where they sell plastic covered screw hooks for hanging garden tools. In that section is a fold up frame to attach to a wall. It holds a bike by the top tube on its frame. They are about $15, I think. You could get two of those and attach them to a stud with lag screws.

Back in the 1970s there were light frames that leaned against the wall, held two bikes (one above the other), and had a foot section that angled out from the wall at about 45 degrees so the weight of the bikes kept the whole thing tightly against the wall. A person could probably make something like that without too much difficulty. Here is a picture of one available now.

Hit up Lowe's or Home Despot. They make a fold up rack that will hold one bike (so you buy two of them) They attach to the wall with screws, but if you put a big eye bolt in the wall you could lock to it. FWIW I did something similar at my wife's retail store. I went on the inside wall and mounted a substantial steel plate across 3 studs and have an 1/2" eye bolt sticking out thru the wall on the other side to lock up to.

Cool thanks guys I found those wall mounts at a local bike shop for $15 each. I also found a stand like twobikes mentioned but the darn thing was $80, probably worth more than the bikes it will be holding!

I just bought one at Lowes today, it was $4.96! I needed something to hang the bike against the wall, and above where my F150 Supercrew pulls in. You can see the crease in the wall where I pulled in a little too far (tight fit in the garage).

Thanks for the tip!
