    I have a relativly small space to store my bike. It won't fit horizontally, so I have to hang it vertically.


    Is it ok to just screw a large hook into the ceiling and hang my bike by the front wheel, or will this warp the wheel?

    Make sure the hook is into something solid,like a ceiling joist.

    what about.... (this idea is borrowed from john forrester) attach two strings via a hook at your ceiling, with a near-shoe-lace at the oder end.
    The you pass one lace around the seat, and another around the bike handles, like this:

    How about getting a Wilier, then like most works of art you can hang it above your fireplace when you're not riding it.
