What to do with the bikes
I have a one car garage and now have 4 bikes with a 5th coming very soon. Please post pictures how you store your bikes in the garage so I know what to do. Right now I have a rack that holds two bikes and I have individual racks that will hold bikes but I'm not going to have any wall space and getting the truck in the garage is getting tighter every bike purchase. For the winter I wouldn't be opposed to hanging the road bikes on the ceiling just not sure how? Please post pictures Thanks

The obvious thing to do is move some of them into the living room. That should solve your problem right there.
I have separate storage rooms in my house as well as a tiny shack, and some space underneath my porch. Otherwise, 5 bikes would not fit in the garage with the tractor, toolboxes and benches.

On a (somewhat) more serious note, if some bikes are going into deepfreeze for the winter, partially dissemble them (take off wheels and pedals) and store them flush to the ceiling, in the attic or wherever they might go. A partially dissembled bike could even be stored under a bed.
I've seen a few of these...don't know how well they work though. Might be worth a shot at $70...

The secret to mountain biking is pretty simple. The slower you go the more likely it is you’ll crash.

I don't hang my pugs up simply because it is too heavy for me to pick up! So it sits at the front of my van against the wall.

No pics but mine is sort of like that ^^^. Except the bikes don't hang along the wall, they hang out from it. I can get them spaced pretty close together that way. To really solve your problem park the truck outside like I do. Gives you plenty of space for a workshop in there, and also frees up more room for more bikes because we all know you're not going to stop at five.

A green machine! Brings back so many good memories....
I don't use Strava. Don't need an application to tell me I am slow because I already know.
True, that. BUT if you live in the northern tier, trying to get everything de-iced before you can get out of the driveway isn't that much fun.

Hooks are cheap and tough.
This is my combination ski rack/bike rack. 7 bikes and 16 pairs of skis. It fits in 11 feet of wall space.

Hang them. I have two and planning on two more. Like you, I can't get rid of my babies.
So I use these things called 'kick stands', not sure if you heard of them before.
Rockman has a very nice solution there.
Life will pound away where the light don't shine, son...
