Bike Storage

All the storage ideas I see on Pinterest for hanging your bike up in apartments, etc show men's bikes. I have a Woman's bike with the down-swooping bar, originally designed to make room for skirts and modesty, but it does make it easier to get on and off!

I need to store it indoors in my new apartment, which means basically up off the floor somehow, so I finally designed my own hangers--nothing special, just rods that will hang from the studs and hold the bike in appropriate spaces in the pipes.
They can be regular rubber coated utility/bike hooks, or pieces of dowel or long bolts covered with pipe insulation.

Since we have 10-12 ft. ceilings, I'd love to put it on a pulley to get it really out of the way.  We'll see.
