Just a few days back, we re-published a popular roundup of rough n' tumble bikes perfect for city dwellers. Here's the thing: I don't bike myself in NYC. I'm far too neurotic having witnessed too many friends enter the ER and/or physical therapy due to messy biking mishaps. Plus, I'm afraid that I'd encounter this guy. As a result, I rely on my own two feet and public transportation. That said, I do admire a nice set of wheels and these built-for-the-city beauties give me a serious case of bike envy. 


As a design-obsessed apartment dweller with limited space, I often think of what storage options are out there in the event that I ever do grow a pair and invest in a bike to propel myself around my neighborhood. Turns out, there are plenty. Below are eight of my favorite bike storage solutions ideas for city apartments and other cramped-for-space living situations. Check 'em out.
