How do you store framesets?

I'm accumulating framesets (mostly vintage road framesets). Have 10-ish. Any tricks/tips on how to store them efficiently? I have hooks for my complete bikes, but that doesn't work for framesets.

What hub is this?

Anyone know what hub this is? Wheelset is a 26er rim brake. No marking on the rim, so that doesn't help. The rear hub is a Deore LX from around 2005, but the front hub looks older than that to me.
