How are y'all storing your bike racks? I have a single 1UP and it folds neatly and stores anywhere. However, as my kids bikes have grown, gone are the days when I can wedge them in back of the SUV. I recently picked up a Yakima 2x tray rack and it folds flat but is still huge. I was thinking of a pulley system to the ceiling or hanging it on the wall. I've got a decent bike storage worked out but this rack is always in the way now.

I have a non-pivoting one sitting on my workbench.  I don't have a wall free to mount it.  Was going to mount it to a fencepost outside, but since then, I modified my 2 bike rack into a 1 bike rack that stays on the car.  It's yours if you want it.

Yeah, I'll take it if you don't need it. I'll PM you.

I have a corner in my garage where I keep my recycle bin.  Used a 2x4 with basic bike hooks in it as a holder.  The hooks mainly keep the rack from falling over, rather than hold it off the ground.  The receiver part of the rack wraps around behind the recycle bin (when in the garage).

Life pro tip: get a remote control power outlet for about $15 on Amazon. Plug the fan into that. I leave the remote on my workbench, when it gets too hot I can kick the can on without having to break away from what I am doing. Also helps because my fan is mounted near the ceiling, pointing down.

I’m a big fan of utilizing my overhead space (the little that I have). I hang scrap wood, tires, and yes, my Thule T2 classic from the ceiling. I just make sure that I use lag screws driven in to pre-drilled locations in the joists.

Made a first go at an angled mount for my new wheel holder tool. This makes tubeless maintenance WAY easier. Pleased with the angle/usability but it's not quite "shop grade" enough for me. Plus my kids like to paint wood while hanging out with me in the garage and if they find out I used their rainbow block...

The weather was so nice today I went for a ride, came home washed both of my bikes and then made a rack for my rack(s). I sold the Yakima I had earlier in favor of 1up add-ons. 70% of the time I run my single rack, 25% of the time I run duals and 5% I run 3x.
