Re: SHOW ME YOUR BIKE ROOMS!!

House not big enough to have a room dedicated to bikes, but the garage is a different story.  I'll have to straighten it out before I snap any pics.

cool stuff so far, love the Haro room.

I kinda agree with your wife. Dirty greasy bikes and parts really turn me off. Im a total survivor guy but I have no patience for "patina dirt". All of my stuff is thoroughly disassembled, scrubbed and polished up before going into my house.

Last time you were here there was a Tool Box in the corner. Since quitting wrenching I sold that one as my big box came home.

I kinda agree with your wife. Dirty greasy bikes and parts really turn me off. Im a total survivor guy but I have no patience for "patina dirt". All of my stuff is thoroughly disassembled, scrubbed and polished up before going into my house.

I'm right with you on this topic. But tires leave marks on the wall, which "never clean off completely" and hubs, bottom brackets, pedals and headsets ALL HAVE GREASE INSIDE OF THEM; EVEN SEALED AMD THREADLESS PARTS = "...captured and contained dirty, greasy things touching and even hanging on the walls right in the open to be seen by everyone.  You need a separate shed or something to put that stuff in and where you can work without messing up the ENTIRE house."  Pretty much sums up her appreciation of this hobby. 

Clean all your bikes and parts as much as practicably possible and my wife will still see them as dirty pieces of machinery.

But hey let's spend a couple Grand to buy a bunch of furnishings and such from West Elm (that WILL NEVER be worth 40% or more of the original purchase price; 40% is being generous I will add).

Re: SHOW ME YOUR BIKE ROOMS!!

It's not a very big room, it's more like a large closet and I have 22 Schwinn Predators crammed in there right now... Started to rearrange it a little, then got pulled away from it, so it still needs to be straightened out a bit...

True!! I never work on bikes in the house. I work on everything in my shop next to the house and then carry them inside and up the stairs to the bike room.

Was looking at house @ 5 years ago that sat on 1 acre (ish)....and in the rear it had a garage/shop like yours.   It had two large bays and a work/office/bathroom area to the right of the bay.
Garage doors were not as tall as yours though.
I fell in love with the house (SHOP)!!
All I could do was envision my set up... smile
Clean it up...paint...seal the floors etc. 
The plan was to have my home office (man cave like) there...plus store/display the bikes and park an old bimmer in it.

The house had multiple offers.  It was already $65k over asking price....and it needed @ $50-60k worth of work in the interior of the house (kitchen, bathrooms, floors, painting).
I passed.....but man do I remember that shop!
