Alternating handlebars in/ rear wheel in will save a lot of space, but they won't be as easy to get out.

We have a couple folding racks at the shop that will take 2-4 bikes, and I think we have an extra that we don't use. I've also made racks for my own bikes for shows, and making a rack is pretty easy. How many bikes? And how little space is there?

I'm trying to figure out a good way to park my bikes in the garage so I can get them in and out without a lot of trouble. I'm considering building a rack to go on the floor and support them by the back wheel so they remain upright. It seems that staggering their arrangement would make it possible to get a bunch of them in without the pedals and bars clashing. Maybe putting them in alternate directions (facing in and out).

Has anyone come up with a satisfactory solution/arrangement? Approx measurements? I don't want to reinvent the wheel.
