    My house was built before people had cars. A garage would be a luxury.

    Your garage set up?

    I recently moved as well and have been experimenting with the best way to maximize space and convenience. At the moment, I’ve got this:



    I have the vertical hook setup also, but getting the bike in and out is sometimes awkward.

    I know my garage ceiling is not like most, but I think this solution would work in most. I needed a way to get them up and not have wheels hanging low enough to walk into. Maybe $8 of hooks from HomeDepot per bike + a step ladder to take one down in max 10 seconds. They even fit above the garage door when it's opened.

    3 bikes on the wall behind the cars, and room for a 4th. Plus a couple wheel racks.

    Hey, there's bikes in the picture! LOL

    It's a hydraulic lift, just pull the car out from underneath, put the ramps on, lower the car on top and drive it off.

    A combination of these:
    https://www.sierratradingpost.com/de...shelf~p~9288t/

    And these:
    https://www.amazon.com/Willworx-Supe.../dp/B006Z0QB1Q

    allow me to store 5 bikes in a limited amount of space in the garage (the fifth bike is hung from ceiling with old fashioned screw hooks).

    The Delta wall rack should never cost more than $15 when you buy it at Sierra Trading Post and use a coupon... lot's of places sell the same piece of hardware for a ridiculous ripoff price of $40 (REI comes to mind... don't get me wrong I love that place and purchase plenty there but in this case Sierra Trading Post price wins).

    My setup is not the best with regard to getting easily to every bike, obviously the most used 2 bikes are on the outside. But it does well in terms of using up volume.

    My guess is you are hiding a cherried out 1986 Plymouth Reliant K-car under there

    If using wheel hooks I have found it best to alternate which wheel the bike is hung from. Doing that allows the bikes to be hung nearer each other without staggering the height they are hung, since the bars aren't forcing the bikes further apart.

    They are much easier to load the bike than hooks, and they fold up and can be angled left or right. Bit pricey though
