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.
