Take Advantage of Simple Physics
Use a Pulley
If you own a heavy bike, or lack the strength to lift it over your head, try a ceiling-mounted pulley system and let physics ease the effort. This bike lift by Racor is easy to install and use.
Let a Hook Grab Your Bike
Use spring action to grab your bike by mounting a claw-style bike hook on your garage ceiling or rafters. This hook, made by Gladiator, is available at Home Depot.
One-Up Your Bike Holder
Room for Accessories
Keep your bike and all accessories up off the floor in one place. The easy-to-install OneUp Bike Holder by Topeak does just that.
Non-Permanent Wall Rack
Freestanding Bike Stand

Tried and Tested Method
One of the easiest and least expensive ways to store you bike is with good old-fashioned heavy-duty rubberized hooks made to screw into a stud or rafter. Hang bikes with one hook for vertical storage, and two hooks placed a bike’s width apart for horizontal storage.
A Quick Exit
If you’re always on your bike, try a space saving bike mount that is easy to grab and go – the Bike Butler. A single attachment location on your seat post makes for a quick exit.
No Wall Solution
Don’t have wall space to spare? Try this floor-to-ceiling tension bike rack. It’s held in place by the tension of the central rod and can be installed anywhere with a solid ceiling and 7 to 10 feet of ceiling height.
Don’t Forget Accessories
Keep it all Close By
Don’t forget to store your helmet, water bottle, lock and other accessories close by. Secure a hanging mesh organizer from the ceiling near your bike mount to keep all related items in one place.
