turning the handlebards 90 degrees really helps to reduce the ammount of
space a bike will take up. another trick i learned from bikes not bombs:
remove the pedals! they often get hooked on one another, stuck in the
spokes, etc. then yeah, pile 'em or hang 'em (you can get rubber-coated
hooks from any hardware store - thread them into some thick ply wood
(better thank 2x4s because they don't split) and mount the plywood to the
ceiling or walls).

as for finding space to keep your bikes, we're just starting to sort that
out. i've found that there are people with empty garages, corners of
wharehouses, parking stalls, etc. if you can't afford to rent, let people
know you're looking for space and you might get lucky and get some
donated.

good luck!
