12 Garage Bike Storage Ideas
Store your bikes safely and create more available space in your garage with these bike storage solutions.
Bikes stored safely and easy to get to in your garage are more likely to be ridden. These bike storage solutions offer something for everyone — whether you ride your bike nearly every day or just take it out on weekends when the weather is nice.
Lock It Up
The Ultra-Space Saver Single by Dero is savvy storage with piece of mind. With this rack, you can hang your bike vertically and off the floor, and you can use a U-lock to secure the bike to the wall.
DIY Bike Shelf
Make an industrial-style DIY wall-mounted bike rack that will show off your bike and keep your riding gear organized. Get our instructions on how to easily configure a rack with pipe fittings that works best for you and with custom touches.
If you're seeking bike storage that can move easily — whether you're rearranging the garage or moving houses — look for a solution like the Gravity Bike Rack by Racor. It holds two bike frames and attaches securely to the wall through a drywall screw.
A Fit for All Bikes
Finding a storage solution to accommodate different types of bike frames can be difficult. The Velo Wall Rack from Feedback Sports makes it easy with sliding arms to fit any frame.
Get Your Floor Back
Upgrade from the pulley system and hang your bikes up high with an electric lift, like this one from Garage Gator that hangs up to eight bikes.
If you have floor space, consider an inexpensive bike stand like the RAKK from Feedback Sports. It holds the bike by either the front or rear wheel without scratching the spokes or rim. It's compatible with all types of bikes.
Hang It All Up
When hanging bikes in the garage, wall track systems are an attractive and easy-to-use solution. The Gladiator GearTrack Bike Rack shown here comes with track and four hooks: one for a kid's bike, one quick-release hook for an adult bike, and two hooks for helmets.
One of the obvious problems with storing bikes is that they take up lots of space in the garage. Solve that problem using Steadyrack's Classic Rack. Hung close to the floor, bikes can be wheeled into the rack then swiveled toward the wall to save space.
Do Double Duty
If you frequently work on your bike, why not choose storage that doubles as a repair station? Look for lightweight stands that hold bikes by either the frame or seat post, like the Bikehand Bicycle Repair Stand.
For families of avid cyclists, the Rubbermaid FastTracks system with Vertical Bike Hooks provides ample wall storage for hanging multiple bikes. You'll need the FastTrack rail, hooks and hardware for a complete setup, but hooks can be purchased separately.
Need to park 4 or more bikes? Here's an easy DIY project that will keep the bikes upright and at-the-ready when you need them. Follow our step-by-step directions. And enjoy a driveway and garage clear of clutter.
Budget Bike Storage
If you don't need anything fancy and just need to get your bikes off the garage floor, opt for heavy duty bicycle hooks, which you can find at most hardware stores. These are from Blue Hawk.
