    Or you can just flip the bike upside down on the floor, it's more stable this way than swinging from a rope.

    It really doesn't swing it was stable, I've done it upside down for years, this worked much better, and the heighth can be adjusted easily.

    There's a couple companies that make bike racks like this for people who live in lofts, except they're on pulleys so you can pull them all the way up into the rafters.

    I don't like storing any of my mountain bikes with open circuit hydraulic brakes upside down or on their side for extended periods of time. Elixirs seem more resistant to issues with this than Juicies though.

    Spent $40 at home depot on some pulleys, rope, and a couple tie downs to make a nice quick block and tackle system for hanging kayaks from the garage ceiling this winter...Figure you only need half the leverage for a 30lb bike as opposed to a 60lb or so kayak, so you could probably rig up a nice system for $20 or so yourself...
