Okay, if you have been riding any amount of time; just like anyone else, you will need a spot to store all of your bicycles. While a household is typically happier with multiple bicycles, where are they supposed to go? Velominati said it right when they declared Rule 12, but can space be an issue that causes some people to limit the number of bikes and/or bike accessories they own?
Not everyone has a basement, garage, tool shed, or entire barn to store their bikes in… but some do. Let’s take a look:
Wow. Just Wow. I’ve seen fallout shelters that have used less materials and invested time. Either this person is banned from his home quite often, or his life is spent around housing and servicing his bikes.
WHO EVEN NEEDS THAT MANY SADDLES???????
Okay, I can understand this. A few bikes, and a nice little hand-built workspace. Very respectable.
Simple. Good use of garage space. Do they even own or need to own a car? :P
A well used portion of space with ceiling hooks, and a little workshop, Nice.
Now we go into the basement bike residences. Lets just hope it doesn’t get spooky :o
Well, at least the bikes are out of the way, and are not being exposed to the weather. Right?
This is an example of a safe, but cramped bike storage area. I can only imagine the coversation went something like: “Honey, can I move a few of your storage boxes, and have my bicycle down here, please?”
How many readers are in apartments or dorm rooms where space is tight? What do you do then? Do you keep your bikes in your bathtub when not showering, then in the livingroom when not playing Guitar Hero? Living in a cramped space can really force you to limit how, and how many bikes you store. It may even limit you from buying that third bike that is really sweet and under MSRP by 40%.
Its like an entire herd of bicycles came over for dinner…
In the vacuum closet? I guess that works.
These people all are sensible and keep their investments protected from rain and weather. This is just one more way people inadvertently show they are serious about their sport, or they care about their belongings. Either way, it is fun to see where folks stash their bikes.
Readers, I now ask you to submit your photos of where you put your bikes!
