When it comes to de-cluttering your life, having the right bike storage shed can work wonders for those with bicycles. You don’t necessarily have to rush out and buy a new shed just for your bicycles. Often just getting your bikes off the floor and overhead is enough. You can hang them on the walls of your garage or tool shed, or even suspend them from the ceiling.
If you cannot afford to build a separate bike storage shed, companies like RAD Cycle Products offer a bike hoist to hang your bike from the ceiling. You don’t need a ladder or a whole lot of money. For as little as 15 dollars you can buy the RAD hoist.
For about the same price, Everhold makes a wall bike mount that utilizes a 4-point mounting system that fastens to sturdy framework or studs. You can easily turn a tool shed into a bicycle storage shed with either one of these options.
For those with deeper pockets, or people who just don’t have the garage or tool shed space, you’ll want to check out these bike storage shed options.
If you’re wondering why you should spend the extra money on a shed specific to bicycles you should read this. Just because you can hang a bicycle from the roof doesn’t mean it is a good fit for your garage.

If security is more of a concern you will probably want a more solid structure that not only locks from the outside, but the bicycles themselves lock to the structure for double protection.
Whatever your needs are, there are many different setups to choose from. If you’re going to store your bicycles in a garage you can either go with an inexpensive wall mount system, or if you don’t have the wall space, a hoist style system that gets your bikes off the ground and overhead.
