This is a stupid simple bike "stand" that I've used in my garage now that no one has bikes with kickstands anymore. I have the big hang-from-the-ceiling hooks but that isn't very convenient sometimes (especially for a seven year old).   Great for airing up the tires, etc.

This one is for my daughter's bike and I have one higher up on the shelf supports for my bike.  I have my air compressor and a few bike tweak things stored close at hand.  It works screwed into a horizontal or vertical surface as long as the strap is snug.  This would probably work on a sturdy bookshelf if you were an apartment dweller that just needed to balance your bike more securely.

I got my double sided Velcro from an electronics / networking supply.  It is very handy for hiding your computer wires under your desk, too.

This is stupid? OK, I'm stupid too...

OK, maybe not stupid but not in the realm of rocket science.
