We use a combinations of used Bicycle Display Fixtures (http://www.bikecollectives.org/wiki/index.php?title=Bicycle_Display_Fixtures) a ceiling full of hooks for wheels and some bikes (we just took a 8' 2x4 and screwed hooks into them, and then used two chains to screw into joists) and tall saw horses for temporary storage(hang bikes by seats).
If our ceiling was higher, we would build a loft.

Hi all,

I'm sure talk about storing excess bikes has come up, but I haven't
been able find any messages of such using the search function, and
there strangely doesn't seem to be anything on the wiki.

We're about to move our shop into a new space, and with its high
ceiling there's room to build a perimeter mezzanine level for storing
extra bikes and other stuff.  Some of us are a bit nervous about
having one built of wood (resuming building code allows), and are
instead thinking of buying a custom steel set-up(expensive!), or
keeping the bikes on the floor (taking away room for other things) or
outside in a container (not doable at the new location).

I'm still into the mezzanine idea, as is one of the other members.
I'm wondering what other shops have done for their storage needs.
