I made a rack out of PVC pipe.
a $6 wall rack for the best bike,hung high enough to allow another bike to be parked under it. Kickstands (I know, not cool, right?) on all the bikes – makes storage easier and flexible.
& hooks in the ceiling for the “parts” bikes and ones that are yet to be put in working order.
In my garage… a Trek Hybrid, a 80s Schwinn 3-speed, Trek mtn, Giant Mtn, 70s Schwinn tandem. A Target Schwinn hanging from the ceiling along with a Fuji Mtn bike that needs put in working order.

We decided just to lean our bikes against the wall because the only bike stands that get really good reviews are too expensive. Many seem to be unsteady or poorly made (slippage, unbalanced, cheap parts), based on user reviews I have read. Would love to hear about a really good experience someone had with an affordable model.
I like when people are trying to challenge me, and I appreciate that you maintain a fairly active dialogue with your readers. Couldn’t agree any more. Your advice is great.
