Those who’d like to hang a child’s bike in the garage should opt to place it on the wall or a bike stand rather than the ceiling so that the child can access it with ease. An adult’s bike can be placed on either the wall or the ceiling. Be sure to use heavy-duty hooks with a plastic coating that you can hook right onto the tire and turn the bike upside down. These types of hooks will function as a solid means of support and they’ll also prevent your bike from accumulating scratches.
