I hang mine on the wall sideways - take the front wheel off and turn the handlebars, what you lose in length you gain in girth.... fnar fnar

Get doors, windows, walls and roof secured first. Bike locks won't be a problem if they can easily get inside the garage. Once inside and out of sight they can take as long as they like to pick/break locks on individual bikes and tool cabinets.

Brick or concrete construction with a proper solid roof and steel or uPVC doors and barred windows (if you must have windows) are a must along with CCTV. You can get decent motion sensing cameras for £50 or £60 that connect to the Internet and email you when something happens.

I am lucky with our lock up there are a few companies already with CCTV and a guard dog as well. You would be sorely disappointed to negotiate all that and cut through the steel doors to discover all the worthless crap we have in there!
