15 Best Garage Bike Racks to Organize Your Space
For city dwellers with limited storage options, a bicycle rack is a great way to clear the hallway and free up some floor space. There are several different options available, each with its own benefits or drawbacks depending on your requirements.
The different types of options include ceiling, wall, or floor racks for single or multiple bikes. Some need to be wall-mounted while others are freestanding for apartments that don’t allow drilling.
The best way to store bikes in a garage is usually wall-mounted to keep them out of the way of cars. In apartments, free-standing bike racks help to keep bikes from falling over and vertical wall mounts save a lot of space.
1. Delta Cycle – Jumbo Hooks
Double – Ceiling bike hooks / Single – Wall bike rack
This upside-down bicycle hanger might be the cheapest and best way to store a bicycle in the garage!

The combination of two hooks should hold up any bike weighing less than 30lbs once the bike hanging hooks are properly mounted through the ceiling.

It’s cheap, easy to use, and quite versatile. The only downside to it is that the distance of hooks for one bike might vary for another if you are going to use both of the hooks for a ceiling so make sure to check the wheelbase before.
