We have something like that at my work, but the hook that holds the tire is perpendicular to the track (like a hangar in a closet), so you can pack a lot more bikes along the length.

Just like the Cool Tools link, now that I see it.

We've been hanging our bikes this way in our basement for a couple years now, but recently I've been told by a number of sources (including Ye Olde Bike Snob) that hanging a bike by the wheel is a big no-no, primarily because it places all the weight on one small portion of the wheel. Is this a legit concern?

Bren

@Hand Panther...great question about storing by the wheel. It never occurred to me. This discussion on BikeForums.net puts me at ease: http://www.bikeforums.net/archive/index.php/t-3859.html

A bike mechanic on that thread notes that hanging suspension bikes upside down can sometimes cause leaks in the suspension, so I guess that's something to consider.

Leo Horishny

Not that there's anything wrong with these ideas, but an even cheaper, lighter and effective hanging system would just use angle iron with holes drilled in the one side and however many plant hooks you may need. Suitable for an area where the bikes would hang w/o blocking a usable space.

..i got a couple of old car cycle racks from the tip and fixed them onto the wall- 6 bikes supported by the frame and out of the way- like the idea of the sliding bike storage though...

Bren

@Leo the angle iron is a great idea! Still, I like being able to slide bikes out of the way...

Leo Horishny

Bren, no doubt, this is a slick idea, I'm just terminally cheap....
Coventry cycles idea is clever.
