Just looking to see what others have come up with for cheap homemade bike stands. Not work stands, but just devices to keep bike propped up in the garage. Need ideas to better organize all my bikes. Thanks:)

Bar ends and a seat. No Joke. You can use it on the trails too.
:lol:

I bought a workstand 10 years ago - used it maybe 2 or 3 times. My neighbor bought a mondo Parks shop work stand - he uses it to hang tires and tubes on. When I see him working on his bike, it's either upside down or leaning against the garage. :lol:

I have an 8 X 12 shed in my back yard where I store my bikes. I use big plastic coated J hooks. They cost about a dollar each.. The back wheels are on the floor and the front wheels are up,secured by the J hooks. One wall is filled with bikes, well,only 5 but room for 3 more.;) The other wall is shelves from floor to ceiling where I store bike parts and camping gear for my twice a year bike trips.

The bike that I'm currently riding is always stored in my garage,leaning against the wall.

I made this stand from a bunch of scrap metal and a pair of vise grips. I think the base is from an old washer/dryer. :rolleyes: Works good. Top section is removable to clamp in my bench vise for working in my shop. You could make something to hold the top section on a wall to hold your bike. Just trying to help/give ideas.

These are all great, especially the vice grip one. However, I need a solution more like what bike shops use to hold all the bikes up that are on display on the floor, like the kind that the rear tire is put into. Not a work stand. I have 4 bike and can't hang from ceiling or the wall and am tired of leaning them all up on each other which makes getting one out a real pain and usually cause scraps and scratches due to pedals.

Really nice work bench but where's the bike storage rack the OP is asking about? I see your bike leaning over against a cabinet.

No worries, though. I have a hard time reading the OP's posts too.

Here's something built out of pvc pipe for a truck bed but you could design and build something similar for the garage floor. Could also be built out of 2 X 4s.

Just buy the ones the bike shop uses. Got a nice one there for $40 bucks.
