    Have seen some clever racks made out of Solvent Weld waste pipe and fittings.

    Pretty cheap to make, and totally customisable to the shape and size you need for each bike

    Halfords sell the big padded hooks for about £3.
    Put them on the wall, about 6′ up & 18″ apart. One bike hung from front wheel, next one the rear etc.
    Works a treat. Put them high enough & there’s room underneath for boxes etc.

    All made from PVC Solvent Weld Pipe.

    Cheap as chips.

    There’s loads of different designs available online.
    Or design your own that suits exactly what you want.

    I’ve made a few things in the garage for storage out of PVC pipe, its great stuff, and good fun too 🙂

    If you need it to be a bit heavier to make it more stable, put an open T piece somewhere, and when it’s all built put the open elbow highest, and fill the whole thing with water, then seal the open end with a glued in stop end.
