Purchased a $25 trailer hitch from Northern Tool and mounted sideways on an end cabinet.
Used my auto bike rack that was taking up room in the garage. Hang my bike from the rack for easy maintenance.
Most car racks have straps to limit movement. This also utilizes something that most of us have laying around. When complete, simply remove the car rack and retun it to the spot where it was collecting dust.
