Storing Different Sized Girls/Women's Bikes & Trailer

I'm trying to find a way to conveniently store (hanging from a wall or ceiling) a little girls hybrid bike, a teenage girls road bike with 700 wheels, an adult woman's folding bike, my Long Haul Trucker with 700 wheels, and a Burley Bee bike trailer. The women's bikes all lack cross bars which is limiting storage options. Is the best way just to buy some giant hooks and mount to the wall? Do pulley systems like this work well https://www.containerstore.com/s/gar...E&gclsrc=aw.ds ?

I have my wife's bike hanging on a hook on the side of the garage, back tire on ground, front tire in hook. I have/am using the ceiling mount systems, they work good. Just be careful of the hook ends, they can get bent and drop your bike. I currently have my tandem hung from a ceiling mount system that I took the hook ends off, put eye hooks instead; then uses a plastic coated cable and carabiners to hold the bike.

Which brand ceiling mount system did you choose?

I just bought a cheap one from a store called menards (Midwest lowes or home depot). I didn;t use the cheap short screws that came with it; I replaced those with 3 inch torx screws that I made sure went into studs.

Thanks for the follow-up and the tip on screws!

I've used the ceiling hangers for my daughter's bikes which are small and light and my 90's Hardrock Ultra because it an indestructible beast but resist hanging my wife's Verve 3 or my Quick 1. I also used longer screws to mount the assemblies and appreciate the carabiner suggestions. I'm hoping my next garage has more usable space around the parameter.
