How to Store Your Bike Indoors

3 Chic Ways to Store Your Bike Indoors

Now that we're heading into Summer, many of us are pulling our bikes out of storage or investing in a new set of wheels. There are so many chic bike designs on the market right now (I'm in love with my Public bike), and bicycling is a great way to enjoy the weather and get some exercise. However, many of us live in smaller apartments that don't have extra storage for bikes. Luckily, if you don't want to lock your bike up outdoors, there are some great options for hanging your bike up inside your home.

My favorite design by far is Chris Brigham's Bike Shelf. Chris notes, "While visiting many friends' small apartments here in SF and more so in NY, I noticed that there is a void when it comes to elegant bike management. Bikes always get in the way — either in the hall or leaning up against a bookshelf or something. So, I decided to design something to fix that problem." The Bike Shelf is available in solid walnut and ash at Knife & Saw ($300 for walnut, and $270 for ash).

I adore the shelf's simple, sleek lines, and beautiful wood. Here's a closer look.

Keep reading for two more options.

This Wall-Mounted Bike Rack ($85) is a more economical option. It's made from reclaimed wood and will work with nearly any bicycle frame. It must be mounted onto a wall stud for stability.

Another even cheaper option is Urban Outfitters' Folding Wood Bike Shelf ($49). No reviews are available at the moment though, so if you've tried it, let me know how sturdy the shelf is.
Do you have an ingenious way of storing your bike? Tell me about it in the comments.

Ah, good point. You might have to look into storage methods that hook onto the tire, like this one: (bonus, it's super inexpensive).

It looks as though the bike needs to have a crossbar in order for these options to work. What if your bike doesn't have that crossbar?
