I’m looking to get the storage of my bikes sorted, but I’m struggling with “how” and to do so efficiently.
I have a rather typical British garage (as in “it’s too small to be truly useful, what were they thinking when they defined this as a standard size”).
I have my trainer set up in there along with garden tool storage and the family bikes.
I’d like to make the most efficient use of space possible.
I have two further bikes myself, one more adult bike and three children’s size bikes (which will hopefully drop to two when I can persuade my daughter off the town bike, but will also grow in size as they do). So, realistically, I need storage for 5 bikes that is, ideally, space-efficient.
The height of the room and dimensions would only really allow two bikes vertically above one another on a wall. I had considered mounting them with wheels against the wall, but that chews nearly half the width of the garage when you factor in my saddle height. It is probably still the most efficient method I can think of so far.
Alternatively, at a push, I could put in a shed or storage unit outside just for the bikes.
As people are wonderfully resourceful creatures, though, there is every possibility one or more of you have come up with amazingly creative solutions to this problem, so, if you have, show me your storage solutions
