Hi, I'm Travis at Mad Dog Cycles here in Provo. We're taking about how to put a bike hook in your garage, like this, to hang your bicycles up on the ceiling. Now first you want to get one of these hooks, most bike shops do carry these. You can find them at your local mass merchant hardware stores, they're very inexpensive like a dollar ninety-nine each. As you can see we have rafters showing here, some garages will be sheet rocks and you want to make sure you hit the appropriate stud. You see how we put this one right here into the stud, we screwed it in there and we spaced them out to just enough to where if you were to put it on, if you have a lot of bikes like we do here, you have, you know, one going up and the other handle bars going down so you can squeeze a lot more together that way. A little bit harder, if you have fewer bikes it would be better to space it out just enough. Also, you can actually mount these hooks on the wall, and then hang the bike down in case you have really, really tall ceilings, and if you do have tall ceilings we have hoist systems that you can get too.
