Not sure exactly how tall our ceilings are at Bikerowave, but we use a long stick with a hook to hang bikes on the ceiling. Easier to manage than pulleys. 

We have two tiers of wheel/rim/tire storage on a wall. They hang perpendicular to the wall using. We have hooks that hang from a wooden rack - since the hooks can move side to side, we can always slide things to make full use of the space. Hook-stick helps reach the upper level of this.

Hi all,

We’ve just moved our shop, and the front part of the main room has an 18-foot ceiling! We are looking into an overhead grid system from which to hang the usual tires and wheels, but there’ll still be those tall walls…

So I’d love to find out what others may have done with a similar room. Hang stuff way up and lower it by pulley? Or just fill the upper half of the walls with art and cool old bikes?
