    The Bikes have devoured my Car Space

    I have one hoist for one bike but I needed to get them all out of the way so I can shelter the car during these late season snow days.
    So here was my solution:

    Could you please add some additional pic ? I'm not sure how the bikes are hanged. Only through the black bar ??

    The Bike seat just hangs on the horizontal bar. When the bar is elevated the bike tips forward. I use bungee cords on the seat post to secure it.
    Like the Tri bike transition:

    Good idea.

    You could do a motorized version as well.

    A power winch was the original idea but it was more involved with additional costs and rigging a trip switch.
