when i lived in an apartment, i hung my bikes by the rear wheel from hooks in the ceiling. it get's them off the floor and results in more room then stands which start at floor level.
That stand is a good ideaPicshooter

I built mine out of Poplar.Good looking enough to get away with having it inside. Even built a few and sold them. But by the time you figure out the total cost, the stand you are looking at is a real bargain, even more so if you have sloping top tubes.
Hooks work well and are cheap. but if you ever wanted to temporarily or permanently relocate them, the stand is the way to go.

Scroll down to the RAKK Integrated Bicycle Display System.

The rear wheel is backed up into the rack where a spring loaded lever applies pressure against the wheel holding bike upright. No mounting on walls, compact, portable, minimalistic, cool!

I bought a bear craft storage rack. It's a pole that can hold 2 to 4 bikes. There's nothing wrong with the supergo product. i seen some people mention that the one that leans against the wall works great.

I own a condo, so I bolted mine to the sealing for better support. I'll just spackel the drywall if I sell my place. Seems to keep the bikes out of the way. Reason I didn't use hooks was trying to find your ceiling joist where you want to hang your bikes.

Good luck,

Get a couple of rubber coated hooks from the hardware store.
