U.S. Department of Energy reports that 25% of people with two-car garages fill it with too much stuff that they can’t park a car inside
Getting bicycles organized can be a daunting experience. When I was a kid, as far as I know, there weren’t any fancy gadgets for getting bicycles off the floor and out of the way. Today there are tons of great options depending on your budget, style, and bike usage. Here are some of the favorite tools used by organizers:
For the family with many bikes:
This bike rack will keep bikes together where they are easy to access. Children can easily pull bicycles in and out to ride.
SportRack Bike Valet
For the family that doesn’t ride often:
Save some floor space and get those bicycles off the floor with hooks.
We like the Rubbermaid Fast Track system because you can add and subtract hooks as needed. These hooks clip onto the Track after the Track is installed. The hooks are available for horizontal or vertical storage
Rubbermaid Fast Track
For one or two riders:
These shelf/hook combos give you a way to hang the bike up off of the floor and store your helmet, gloves, and other gear.These run less than $50.
Racor 2-bike storage rack
For the person who does not ride often.
Maybe you’re storing the bike for someone else. This pulley system will get the bike completely out of the way so you have room for your own things. It Runs about $99 but I have seen it on sale on Amazon for as low as $29

For the apartment dweller or people without a garage:
This system and similar ones provide storage without having to install anything. The run about $100+
