We went into fantastic detail on each of these ways we found to store your family’s bicycles. Check out that article here. Sometimes a combination of bike storage methods works best. Little ones can use kickstands, and everyone else can use off-floor or shed storage. Below are our top picks for the best bicycle storage ideas, including ceiling hooks, wall hooks, wall bicycle mounts, floor bicycle racks, bicycle kickstands, outdoor yard cover and a bike shed!
The Best Bike Ceiling Hook
Gladiator makes the best garage slatwall organization system. But you don’t need their wall storage system to store your bicycle on their Advanced Bike Claw. Install this insanely well-engineered bike hook directly into a ceiling joist. The Advanced Bike Hook opens and closes around tires up to 3 in. wide. It safely supports up to 50 lb. Check out this well-designed and engineered bike Advanced Bike Hook on Amazon.
The Best Bike Wall Hook
If you’re storing several bikes or just want some good rubber-coated screw-in hooks, I really like the Richohome Heavy Duty Bike Hangers. This is about the cheapest way to get bicycles off the garage floor. This one package of gets you 8 hooks. They are 6 in. long by 2.6 in. wide. Do check that your bike tires and rims will fit in this hook before installing. These are overall good garage organization hooks that hold up to 100 lb. each.

The Best Bike Shed
This is the Suncast bike shed with 5 ft. wide doors, steel-reinforced double-wall resin walls, and 378 cu. ft. capacity. The resin construction is easy to clean, never rusts and requires no maintenance. Four skylights allow in natural daylight. The floor is 8 ft. wide x 7 ft. deep. There’s plenty of room for the kids to park their bikes, and to retrieve them again. Use kickstands or floor stands for the kids’ bikes. If you have a huge stable of bicycles, consider using wall mounts like this one. You do need a flat dry surface such as one made with concrete patio blocks. View the shed on Amazon.
Super easy to put together, used screw driver and that’s about it! Looks freaking adorable, like a little guest house. We put 18 inch concrete pavers under it — Amazon reviewer

The Best Outdoor Bike Cover
The best outdoor bike cover for family bicycles is the YardStash Bicycle Cover XL. Not all bike covers protect children’s bikes. The YardStash cover’s drawstring and extra wide size ensures you can cover and protect children’s bikes from the weather. This cover has both drawstrings and a buckle to seal off open areas.
The YardStash XL is 82 inches (6.8 ft.) wide, 30 in. (2.5 ft.) deep and 44 inches (3.6 ft.) tall. There’s room for two or three kids’ bikes under this cover, depending on the bikes’ dimensions.
This is the bike cover with multiple strategically places security holes to pass through U-Locks or security cables. Plastic breaks down in sunlight, so the YardStash is UV protected. The huge cover folds down into a carrying pouch which is included.
The Best Bicycle Floor Stands
The Delta Cycle Floor Stand organizes bike storage so that both of the bike’s tire’s are on the floor. This gives it a kid-friendly design that other floor stands might not have. Using some stands, one or both tires are in the air. That design is too difficult for children to use.
The Delta Cycle Floor Stand works with any kid’s bike, even with fat tires, disc brakes or fenders. It’s a sturdy floor structure that adapts up to 8 in. wide. It’s easy to access. Should you see the need to move the bike around fairly often, there’s a Delta Floor Stand model that includes its own wheels. Check out the Delta Floor Stand on Amazon.
The Delta Bike Floor Stand (above) is great for adults’ bikes, too. But if you’re looking to save some valuable garage floor space, then you will do better with a vertical bike floor stand. It’s too hard for kid’s to pick up their bikes, so this one is meant only for the bigger kids and the adults.
The Feedback Sports Velo Stand is a space saver bike stand that works with all size bicycles. It will work even if the bike has disc breaks, fenders and fat tires. This is the stable and sturdy bike floor stand that holds two bicycles in the space of one. There is no installation and it’s a freestanding design. The maximum weight limit is 80 lb. The arms are adjustable. There’s a soft rubber coating where the bike frame meets the holding arms. The Velo floor stand comes in black and silver. Check out the latest price here.
First off, [the Feedback Sports Velo Vertical Floor Stand] is good-looking piece. I got the plain aluminum and it’s just gorgeous. It would do justice to the interior of anyone’s house if you wanted to keep it inside. Besides the brushed aluminum pole, the other bits are heavily powder-coated, so they’re slick and should stay beautiful and corrosion free. It’s solid as a rock, with no wobble I can detect with the two vertical pieces screwed together. — Amazon reviewer
The Best Bicycle Kickstands
Kids outgrow everything we give them, so it’s a nice feature when you can get something that grows with them. The Raskullz bike kickstand is adjustable from 12 to 20 inches. As your child and your child’s bike grow, push a button on the kickstand to increase its length. This kickstand is hefty, has a gripping rubber foot, and it comes in three colors: black, lime green and mint/pink. The lime and mint have a nice retro feel to them. Check out the latest price on Amazon.
For a reasonably priced adult’s bike kickstand that’s packed with thoughtful features, you can’t go wrong with the BV Adjustable Bike Kickstand. This is the kickstand that works for 24 in. to 29 in. bicycles. You lift a latch to allow the kickstand to glide up or down to your desired height. Close the latch to lock the kickstand height into place. The foot is coated with a non-slip coating. The kickstand won’t slip or sink. Check out the BV kickstand here.
To summarize, this kickstand is rock solid, will fit most bikes on the market, can be easily adjusted without any tools, and works amazingly well even on mountain trails. I wouldn’t hesitate to buy one for every bike I own simply because of the ease of adjustment and how good of a stand this is. If you are on the fence about buying this, don’t think twice. — Amazon reviewer
The Best Bicycle Wall Mount
Nothing can take up garage floor space like a bicycle. Wall stands get the bikes off the floor. It can be difficult to find a wall stand that properly holds onto a bike, though. The reason is that fenders, disc brakes and fat tires change the width of what we’re asking the wall stand to hold. Rather than compromise on grip, Steadyrack offers three different wall stands: the Fat Rack, the Classic Rack, and the Fender Rack.
With any rack, you need to leave space on the floor to get the bike down. Steadyrack minimizes the floor space you need to allocate by allowing you to push the bikes toward the walls. Just as thoughtfully, the rack swings toward the wall when not in use. This is highly preferable to a non-swinging rack that you walk into once in a while. Each rack holds one bike up to 75 lb. This is really an adult bike organizer since a littler kid would not be able to lift their front tire into the rack.
The Fat Rack holds bikes 20 in. to 29 in., with a 3 to 5 in. width. The Classic Rack and Fender Rack hold bikes 20 in. to 29 in., and up to a 2.4 in. width. Check out the latest prices: Fat Rack, Classic Rack, and Fender Rack.
