What can I do with my bicycle and bike rack for the car? My apartment building does not have any basement storage, so they have to live somewhere in the apartment. Any creative ideas?

-LeslieM, April 6, The Spring Cure Discussion Board

This is a common problem for many people who don't have the luxury of having a garage, or a basement, or even any outdoor space. My husband has a bike (I currently don't), and we've simply incorporated it into our decor. It props up on its side right by the window in our living room, and I've actually come to love the look. It's best not to fight it, and to work around it instead. If you need the space, the best option is to hang it on the wall. (We're partial to the Cycloc bike rack, but there are plenty of other options.) But even just propping it or setting it up in a designated spot can work. Here are a few photos to get your juices flowing:
