Why mess with a box within a box?

9 Great Bicycle Storage Options that work great in a Bike Shed
Idea #1: Vertical Bike Hook – wall mount storage for a Bike Shed
This simple bike hook from Rubbermaid is a great way to get started with organizing a bike in a portable shed.
Idea #2: DIY Bike Shelf – minimal and satisfying solution for a Bike Shed
If you’re the DIY type a few of these will look good on your bicycle garden shed wall. Check out the step by step instruction on the Liv Cycling website. There’s even room for more of your cycling gear on the handy shelf, and you can’t beat the price.
Idea #3: Ultra Space Saver Single Bike Rack – a fit for any wood storage shed
Now we move to Dero.com to look at the Space Saver Single. Dero also has other more complicated bike racks that, like this one, would work well in a public space because it’s easy to lock your bike in place. With the Space Saver Single simply buy as many as you need and with 4 quick anchors fasten them to your bicycle shed wall and you’re set.
Idea #4: Gravity Bike Rack – a space saving bicycle shed storage design
One great advantage of the Gravity Bike Rack is its freestanding capability. Because of this, you can easily move it when the need arises. No need to drill holes in your bicycle shed; just lean it against the wall, hang two bikes on it and let gravity do the rest.
Idea #5: Velo Wall Bike Rack – a small sturdy bike hook you can mount in your shed
More of a conventional bike rack, the Velo Wall Rack has a simple design that will hold your bike slightly away from the wall. Keep it as high or low on your bicycle shed wall as you wish. This is a great low-cost improvement over the typical generic hardware store hooks that bend easily. A very sturdy holder!
Idea #6: Rakk Bike Rack – a quick and nifty bike shed gadget
This floor style bike rack is a versatile storage solution with a spring-loaded arm that can fold flat when not in use. Simply place this rack on the floor of your bicycle shed, roll your bike onto the track, and the arm holds it firmly in place. A great choice if floor space isn’t at a premium.
Idea #7: Bike GearTrack Pack – a sophisticated option
Here is another relatively inexpensive wall mounted solution for your bicycle shed. This 48’ long track can hold two lighter bikes, as well as headgear. The special bike storage hook holds up to 50 lbs.
Idea #8: Steadyrack Classic Bike Rack – a premier bike rack for any shed
This unique but simple answer to bicycle storage was invented by biker David Steadman and his father-in-law, Ron. They envisioned a rack that would meet the needs of every cyclist; a space-saving design that keeps the bike close to the floor and doesn’t require lifting. This is one of my favorite bike rack designs. Each classic rack easily holds your full-sized bike and neatly folds toward the wall so the floor of your bicycle shed can be utilized for other storage needs.
Idea #9: Garage Gator Bike Rack – advanced bicycle shed storage solution
Now let’s look at the Garage Gator. If you’re a serious cyclist and want to keep most of your bicycle shed available for things like cabinets for your bike tools and accessories this is a great solution. This model has an adjustable 6-9-foot lift bar, 8 storage hooks, and a motor hoist with a 9.75-foot cable. Weight capacity is 220 lbs. You might think a contraption like this may be worth a thousand dollars or more, but the price is a pleasant surprise.

Barn Style Bicycle Shed – This would store a lot of bikes.
If your bicycles demand a fair amount of space, and you especially like the barn style look, then the high barn will be the choice for you.

Carriage Style Bicycle Shed – A space saving design that fits well anywhere.
This backyard shed has a unique, homey look with a very reasonable price tag. Accent it with your favorite colors.

Cottage Style Bicycle Shed – Best looking shed for your best looking bikes.
This shed has the advantage of larger windows, letting more light inside of your bicycle shed. The side walls could be utilized to hang some bikes; moving the door to the end of the building would also add more wall space to hang bikes.

For simplicity, value, and sheer versatility, this may be your best choice for a bicycle shed. The 6-foot-high walls offer great space saving opportunities for a bike rack or racks.
