All it takes is one stolen bicycle to realize that storing a bike outside isn't the best idea for many urban commuters. With limited living space, bringing your ride inside might seem like a tough feat, but these four creative solutions prove that it's definitely possible.

Just take a glance around and see if you can make room for a rack in one of these under-used spaces:

Under the Stairs
The space under stairs is overlooked as a solution for design problems. Open stairs make the perfect spot for a bike-hanging installation that doubles as art and storage, as in this Philadelphia townhome from Dwell.

Between Windows
With innovative hanging hardware, like Cycloc's rotate-and-lock Solo mount (above, $100) or the flat-folding Endo (pictured at top, $54), even the slimmest spaces can become storage.

Suspended Out In Front of a Wall
Think you have no wall space for a vertical bike rack? Think again. The posters and paintings don't have to come down, as reader Ryan proves with his unique cable Bike Rack Wall.

Over a Door
Anyone who's lucky enough to live in a space with high ceilings is never really out of room. You just need to get creative, like Kevin and Dop did in their Uptown Chicago Loft with a clever pulley system.
