I'm in the middle of reorganizing my garage and want to try something different with the herd. Anyone have an inspirational setup?

I like hanging them up. They're out of the way, it's easy to clean under them, and they don't fall all over the place if you bump into them.

I ordered them at my LBS. Saris makes three models.

There's the Bike Trac (in the Work pic), which is the cheapest ($40) and is carried at QBP, so any LBS can order it.

The Locking Bike Trac (in the Home pic) has a loop to U-lock the bike to the rack. At $80, it's a commercial product and must be ordered form Saris directly. Not all LBSs have a direct account with Saris. Trek and Specialized dealers can order through their dealer distribution.

In between is the Cable Locking Bike Trac. I don't own one so I don't know the pricing. It's also a commercial product.

I like the Bike Tracs indoors because, A) they look nice, and B) the trac keeps wet wheels off the wall. In the garage, a $5 hook from the hardware store will work just as well.

I use this for my Road and Mountain Bikes

If that insanely long address doesn't work it is from Target and called a Gravity Stand. I have it bolted to the wall, have old socks over the hooks and lock them to the stand. If some A Hole wants to steal my bikes he could but he will have to work at it.
I hang my kids bikes from the ceiling using one of those pulley systems.
I post pics but I can never get the damn things to work,

My CF bike and my wife's CF fork ALU bike we keep in the dining room on a floor stand. It's not space efficient, but the wife approves. The D.R. is never used and sectioned off so they are "hidden" for all intents and purposes. It's just too hot in the garage in the summer here in FLA. I just don't want to take a chance with the CF in the heat.

The other 6 bikes are all ALU and I keep them in the garage. On the floor with kick stands of floor stands.

I know you wanted pix but my storage is anything but space efficient.

I know you wanted pix but my storage is anything but space efficient. I will post pix and instructions for building a floor stand from PVC pipe if anyone is interested. This is just for holding a bike without a kickstand. You can use it for RD adjustments, but that's about it.

At the moment they are in the living room with all the boxes that still opened from our move. Hmmm, difference being the bikes are getting ridden, but the boxes are still sitting there needing to be unpacked and put away.

We have bikes just leaning against book cases, walls, anywhere we can find space. I think we have a dozen bikes in the house now.

I've been playing some sort of rack/hook system made up of ABS pipes and foam pipe wrap for the contact areas. I was going to attach the entire thing to my wall.

I just use good old fashioned hooks all in a row along one wall. It allows for shelves underneath and room to walk around the car.
