|Can someone recommend a bike storage rack such as the ones sold by Performance or Supergo? Are they solid? Any experience with them?

|Best luck I've had is with a 49 cent laminated hook from Home Depot, srew it in to you ceiling/rafter and hang your bike.|

|Thanks for the tip. I have 4 bikes that I want to store and
save as much space as possible so that might not work. Any additional thoughts?

|All you have to do is alternate the way your bikes hang. Hang them by the front--rear--front--rear wheels and you save a boatload of space. Or you can break out the powertools and copy one of the wooden rack designs that lean against the wall for 2 bikes. I've done both; and even screwed wall leaning racks into wall studs to hold 4 bikes (2 on each arm).
Tools are your friends, not you foe. Use them...

|When you use the hooks do you hang it by the frame?
Is it ok to hang by the wheels?

|theyre solid, but a waste of money IMO.
The hanging hooks are a good idea. Personally, I prefer closet-rod hangers. Cost $1 each (two needed). Just screw into stud or anchor into drywall. Toptubes go into rodhanger. Can even mount a little shelf for helmets, shoes, etc.
