Someone mentioned security in the garage; I hang my bikes as I mentioned, I run a long cable through my bikes and lock it. Cable is not real high security but they have to break into my garage, then cut the cable, a lot of work to do with a high risk of getting caught as time elapses while my alarm is calling the cops.

Something for storing lots of junk in .... in fact you can keep virtually anything you like in them except for a car.

Dont be this guy. 8 bikes, 4 on a Harbor Freight t-bar dolly, 4 on J-hooks, + 2 cars and laundry, in a two car garage. Thinking about a Tuff-shed.

4 hooks that hang bikes from the rear wheel.
1 bike hung by both wheels


I made wheel hooks from wire coat hangers and put fuel hose over the hook to protect them. I have enough for 8 wheels.

the back of my garage has an enclosed workshop type area. I keep my bikes in there. I made a few stands with pVC pipe and board. (from a seth's bike hacks video)

my father in law almost everytime they visit says that we have a huge garage for era our house was built in. I like the extra space.

He's probably OK for now ... I'm guessing he's got another wall the opposite side of the room and then he can start with the ceiling

I don't think I have enough wall space in the new garage so I'm thinking of using this:

^Anyone use something like this? Has good reviews and the price is right...doesn't seem like it could work for 6 bikes from reviews, but I just need it for 4...

Yep, that's what I use. I hang the bikes upside down by the wheels with the bikes facing opposite directions for handlebar clearance.

My trick to keep my property in my garage from being stolen is to shut the garage door when I'm not in the garage. And lock the door(s).

Of course, I see many of my neighbors that leave their garage doors open all day and into the night. It's like they've never lived in a city or had anything stolen before.

@FiftySix my neighbors do the same. I have two different ones whose garage is open all the time.

I keep my bikes in the house.Garage doors are the most proficient way to gain entry into your space/house.All bikes are stored on the wall like pieces of art without wheel sets.I use a roller that attaches to my chain-stay for the chain.My only problem now is storing wheel sets without damaging the spokes in my garage.I have a few ideas that I’ve been tossing around in my head.
My reasoning is if someone breaks into your house they may pass up your beloved frame-set since it has no wheels, same if they got into your garage it’s just wheel sets no frame can’t ride it.

I have three of those HF cycle trees. The one in the garage is the old style that I've had for 15 years or so. They each have 6 bikes on them. I haven't found a better way to keep as many bikes in as small of a footprint.

Six bikes fit without taking up too much wall space.
