b. Or buying a good quality one from the local hardware shop.

Buy two very sturdy hooks from the local shop. Measure the bikes you have from the two points between the wheels, and mark a space on the wall with a pencil. Then install the two hooks on the beam above and hang the bike by its wheels on the hooks. If the bike is really big then use a block and tackle to set up a hoist system. Then hoist the bikes up to the ceiling, and finally wrap the rope around the cleat hook.
The same method used for large bikes can be used to store canoes, kayaks also. Be sure to attach the kayak firmly before hoisting it up. Using two block and tackle simultaneously will stop the kayak from swinging around while in storage.
