11 Space-Saving Indoor Bike Storage Solutions — Annual Guide 2017
Finding space-savvy ways to store your beloved bicycle can be difficult. While some are blessed with ample entryways or even a trustworthy communal bike rack to take advantage of, most of us are left struggling to find enough room for an umbrella stand; let alone our cherished cruiser.
Since storing bikes in a small apartment is no easy feat, we decided to round up some of the most space-effective storage ideas we could find on the web. From super sturdy ceiling hooks to surprisingly chic floor stands, here are 11 bicycle storage solutions that will work in any size of home—no U-lock necessary.
Not only will the Everbilt 3-in-1 Bike Hanger save you tons of floor space by forging vertical wall or ceiling storage, it’ll probably cost you less than your morning latte.
These heavy-duty bike storage hooks are top-rated on Amazon for a reason. Along with screwing directly into your wall or ceiling for easy installation, they also have a non-slip coated finish to protect surrounding surfaces from scratches. It doesn’t get much easier than this.
This comes with a convenient tire tray that ensures you won’t get tracks on your wall from hanging up your wheels.
An Amazon bestseller, the Racor Solo Vertical Bike Rack can easily fit inside a cramped corner or entryway but surprisingly holds up to 50 pounds.
Our Previous Lists:
Designed for bikes that don’t have a kickstand, this can securely hold almost any size of bicycle wheel. Plus, it has rubberized feet to protect your floors from skid marks.
Along with offering a shelf for extra storage room, the Pablo 2 Bike Rack folds down when not in use to save you even more space. Also, did we mention it can hold two bikes?
The Art of Storage Freestanding Bike Rack has sleek, adjustable arms that can hold up to two bikes of any style. Even neater, it’s designed to lean directly against your wall for extra support, no attachment required.
If you’re after a stylish solution for hanging your bike up, look no further than CB2. This rack is made of solid wood that’s been notched to hook onto your crossbar. It even has a built-in cubby box for storing keys, water bottles, and other on-the-go accessories.

Turn your bicycle into a work of art with this stylish wall-mounted bike rack from Pottery Barn. On top of the space you’ll save by keeping your bike off of the floor, it also has a cool wooden shelf that holds your helmet (or bag), too.
Made of solid walnut or solid hickory, this award-winning bike shelf is probably the most beautiful solution on this list (though certainly the priciest). Currently sold out (and in incredibly high demand), it seems like more on on their way, so keep an eye out!
