Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Need a little more info regarding your situation. Do you mean in a small apartment? Do you have to store it outdoors? In the garage of your house? Etc?

Im in the latter of that situation and most of my several bikes are in the garage that has a high ceiling, with three of them being suspended from the overhead with one of those ceiling-mounted pulley contraptions that you can get for around $20 US dollars.

Agreed with Dan above, a little more info is needed, but if storing indoors and space is an issue, I've used one of these in an apartment before with pretty good results.

Id be interested to see what good ideas people have for outdoor storage. I have a garage but its not a garage and we have a shed for bikes but its full. So I have 3 that stay outside under those fabric bike covers from amazon. Something better would be nice though. For now some of the bikes are stuck with being under covers. If it was dry here Id be fine with that but we live near the beach so even being covered eventually rust comes back especially on my vintage bikes

Can you not build a small bike shed that is a little more weather resistant? There are plans for free for something like a 6x6 or 7x7 shed that you can insulate.all over the internet. A friend of mine built one next to his wife's garden shed. I believe it was 7x7. He insulated it, put up some wall wheel mounts and it keeps his bikes nice and dry. He lives out near the beach in very humid Florida and has not had any issue with corrosion.

I agree, leaning against a wall will be most economical.
