    So, I don't keep it in my living room, but I told the wife I had to go out to the garage the other day and she was like "why"? I was silent and she said.... "oh, you're gonna go be with your bikes." lol yep

    The only time my bike leaves the living room is when I go ride.

    My house has a big mud room, so all the bikes live in there with all the associated gear (clothing, helmets, shoes, tools, etc). Yesterday I "rode" my road bike through the kitchen and living and out the front door when I was heading out on a ride. I'm pretty sure my neighbors think I'm nuts... but no way are my bikes living outside or in my garage!

    My 3 bikes live in the living room parked next to the front door.

    I've got a nice little spot for them.

    we have 3 roadies parked in the dining room...because, who dines in the dining room? I've got mine broke down on the dining room table right now, while I'm waiting for my new wheels to be built

    the MTBs have to live in the garage, as I'm not very good about cleaning my bike after a ride...wife won't allow me to track dirt and mud through the house. That is where she draws the line.

    My bike is out in the garage and that's where it's staying. It's always really dirty, even if I clean it. Also I don't want it falling over on the kids or getting dirt on my new carpet. I guess I'm an abusive owner because all I want to do is take my bike out and ride it as hard as I can. Some might call that abuse. I call it tough love.

    I'm sure you meant to say "do you ever move your bike out of the living room?"

    I used to have my bikes in the living room until I got married and have a son. Son's toys is all over the living room and no longer suitable place for my bikes. I have the garage and my bike shop in the basement for my bikes.

    Hmmm, not really enough space in my living room although I used to keep my bike in my apartment living room back in the 80s when I lived in a complex.

    Mine used to stay in the living room full time but I've since moved it to the bedroom. Didn't like all the attention it was getting downstairs when we'd have parties.

    I keep my bike inside my dorm living room...it's too beautiful to leave outside on a dirty community bike rack.

    This, I don't like washing my bike all the time. But if it magically stayed clean I would probably sleep with it too...then again I like it dirty anyways...

    It's there until I convert our downstairs spare bedroom into more of a utility/storage room.. already got the green light from my wife to get rid of the queen bed down there that gets used maybe 5 nights a year and replace it with a small futon. Our laundry machines are already in a utility closet down there so makes sense to me!

    I usually have one in the living room that I'm tinkering with but it does distract my attention while watching TV. The other 7 bikes stay in the garage but a couple of them get alternated to the living room every now and then. I've also learned it's not a good idea to try to ride up the stairs after a few beverages. Luckily, my chic is cool with all the bikes. Hell, she even slept with one of them. I guess she likes carbon too, lol!

    YES!!!!! and then i get told i'm being ridiculous for bringing it inside instead of leaving it in the dark damp lonely garage where its all alone and could get stolen even though i have a lock on the garage door and a extra bar just in case they get the door unlocked.

    All 4 hanging on vertical bike racks in the living area as I have no garage. Even if I did get a garage, no way I'm putting them in there.

    For now, since I still have the luxury of living with my parents, having a hardwood floor in here, and a door in and out of the house in my room, I just wheel it on inside and it's right here with me. Both bikes actually.

    They take up a lot of room in my room though, and block a lot of things. But like hell they're sitting outside. It's one thing to ride them through inclement weather, but I'm not going to leave them out in storms, or what not.

    My girlfriend just moved in with me while we look for a new (larger) place. My three bikes and her one live on the wall in our bedroom! I get to look at my bikes every night before I fall asleep.

    Ours are in the living room, live in a condo. Only have a 1 car garage and its full of car junk, and a junk car. I don't trust our outside storage area enough to put them out there.

    When we lived in an apartment bikes were allowed in the house, then hung in the spare bedroom, then when it became a nursery / kids room, then got moved around to not be near the crib / bed...When we got into a house with garage space, bikes are only allowed with they are brand new.

    I can sometimes sneak them in for a night and pretend they are not in the corner of the dining room and she may also pretent they are not there but they always end up out in the garage.

    I have my FS in the hall between the kitchen and foyer most of the time. It's there now as I type this. SS "beater" is on the porch for spontaneous neighborhood romps with the kids. HT is in the basement where I can eye it up while jamming or recording, along with my mid-school Redline bmx resto-mod. Unless it swaps places with the FS.

    When I was living solo my HT slept at the foot of my bed, near my bass rig.

    I bring all of our bikes in at times depending on the weather, but I also just bought a bike maintenance stand so now I can work out in the garage as well.

    Right now, I have a mtb, a road bike, an extra set of wheels, 2 tubes and 3 tires in the living room. The guest room has the other mtb and road bike, it also happens to be the "parts" room. And yes, my wife is ok with it

    I dont "move" the bikes to my living room,I keep them there.

    Well let me re-phrase that.

    My Trek is in my bedroom, I have my DB 29er and Roadie on a trainer in my living room.
    I want more bikes but I really do not have the room for them

    Haha yeah! I try to park it in the living room after every ride. The wife tolerates it for about a day then shes after me to get it back to its hole (guest bedroom/bike storage) upstairs...lol I'm glad I ride a heavy old cro-moly hardtail cause she cant carry that one up the stairs like she can my roadie. The roadie gets ferried upstairs while I'm at work.

    *Sigh* the trials of living with bike-illiterates...I'm working on her though!

    I live in a 700 sf one bedroom condo so two of my three bikes live in the dining room and living room along with my girlfriends half the time. The repair stand is set up as well most of the summer in the living room and my living space tends to look like a bike shop with tools and spare rims and boxes of parts sitting around everywhere. I'm just fine with that though I'm curious where the new Downhill bike will fit come spring though...

    Both my bikes are actually kept in the living room.

    My main one sits in the unused area behind the couch and the other sits in front of the fire place. Neither makes it look cluttered at all.
