Living in the city might mean having to live in a smaller space than you would like. While bikes are convenient and eco-friendly, they are prone to being stolen and will take up valuable space in your apartment when brought inside. We compiled a list of products and methods that you can employ to store your bike efficiently and stylish. Let’s look at how to store your bike indoors.
There are many permanent bike storage solutions that mount to walls or ceilings, but if you’re renting this could prove problematic. Here we’ve focused on functional and readily available solutions, but it’s worth keeping in mind that putting a little ingenuity and a trip to the hardware store to use is always an option. Also, for many people the floor remains the cheapest and most suitable option.
Let It Hang
If you’re extremely tight for space, consider investing in a wall mount to turn your bicycle into a decorative piece when you’re not riding it. There are wall mount options for every aesthetic sensibility.
Ideas For Stylish Bike Storage At Home For those who want to combine the compact, space-saving power of a wall mount with the additional storage space there are a number of wall mounts with additional space for accessories. Starting at $300, you can find great sleek modern design and a shelf for cycling accessories or anything that needs a new home.

High Up In The Sky
If you live in a loft or just have really high ceilings, you can set up a bike lift. At less than $30, it’s a cost effective solution, but it’s also extremely stylish. Your friends will definitely be impressed when you lower your Schwinn from the rafters at your next dinner party.
Alternatively, if you’re fortunate enough to have stairs in your tiny apartment, you can probably mount two bicycles under there. This is another impressive and efficient way to store your bike.
