How do you store your bikes?

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

How do you store your bikes?

For those of you with multiple bikes, how do you organize everything in your garage (or wherever you keep them all)? I have all but one hanging on hooks, but the ceiling is high and it's kind of a hassle to get them up and down. Been trying to talk the wife into parking her car on the street, but no dice... Pictures if you gottem, especially if you have a unique or interesting system.

I hang the 2 bikes that I am not riding by hooks in the garage by rear wheel. The bike I am currently riding leans against the workbench. When the weather gets colder, nice bikes go downstairs and my Jamis alternates from being on trainer to outside when there is no snow or ice on the streets.

I have one of the things that holds one bike over the other against a wall. My GF's bike and the MTB I just shove wherever is convenient.
