    Do you ever move your bike to the living room

    ...so you can look at it while watching tv?

    Combination of thinking about riding, and admiring the engineering coolness of it for me. I cant be the only one...

    My bike is stored 3 feet from my bed. I stare at it and whisper sweet nothings as I doze off. This is a huge bonus, as my girlfriend often thinks the whispering is directed towards her.

    The ladyfriend wasn't too happy that time I commented on needing to scrub all 32 teeth, though...

    I don't. Mine stay in the garage because there's more room than in our living room.
    The living room has become my wife's sewing room, but I'm fine with that. She supports my hobbies and I support hers.
    One of my bikes gets to spend the winter on a wind trainer in the bedroom though.

    I keep mine in the hallway leading to the front door. It's the last thing I see on my way to work in the mornings and the first thing I see when I get home.

    I keep my dirt jumper in the living room since it doubles as an urban assault bike/short commuter and it gets used a bit more than my all mountain rig. My all mtb has its own corner in my bedroom along with all my gear (xc helmet, full face helmet, knee/shin pads, camelback etc) and a spare wheelset and other misc, bike items. If someone breaks in and get past my pitbull then they deserve my bikes lol. I also have maps of all the local trails on the wall in said corner. My bikes are a bit spoiled.

    I have a vintage Moots Mountaneer ('86) and Ritchey Commando ('84) hanging in my living room. The bikes I ride stay in the garage, they are always dirty.

    My XM8 lives in the lounge as I don't have enough room in my garage for 2 bikes at the moment (too much junk).
    I don't crash, I just have slightly uncontrolled dismounts!

    Mine is there since day one, placed so I can see it from my bedroom. Sometimes I move it next to my bed (when guests come, I do not want them playing with it "uuuu can I try it" no you may not you silly...).

    My wife just moved her new bike inside to the living room, next to the TV this evening, so I can help her do a few upgrades.

    Surfboards are in the way.....

    I don't need to move the bikes anywhere in the northern house since I can go downstairs and stare at them all I like but in the shore place, the surfboards take up the extra space in the living room. I do sleep about 18" from my road bike which is the only necessary bike in the flat coastal plain.

    The surfboard situation will only get worse when I get a SUP next spring.

    Thank goodness my wife is understanding.

    Mine as well as my girlfriends reside right next to the TV! Mostly because we live in an apartment without a garage.

    Two in the living room, three in the basement. The living room spot is closest to the front door and I don't have a garage.

    I used to keep 4 or 5 in the bedroom, but that was in college. They stay in the garage now.

    A while back, I rode one up the front stairs and did a loop through the living room and kitchen and back out, just to show a friend I could clean the front stairs. Probably won't do that any more after we replace the carpet.

    I leave it in the garage, I do however, find myself standing out there staring at it lovingly. Sometimes I wipe it down real gently and caress it.

    I've always wanted to do this when I get my own place. The girl wouldn't mind it either, in fact she would be down to bring hers inside too. I wouldn't want it to be tracking in dirt though.

    No. It proved too dangerous for the walls when I tried to ride them around in the living room. I see a bike, I want to ride it. Seeing my bikes in the living room after a few cold brews allows me to hear their pleading to go for a spin.

    Attempting to bunny hop the bike under a ceiling fan: bad idea.

    Mine and the wife's bikes have their own bedroom. Of course they have to share the room with all the climbing and camping gear, but everything works out.

    baha ha. i have to keep mine in the livingroom. no garage here.

    me and the stud have literally sat on the couch and stared at our bikes for two hours and talked about them. we make fun of ourselves about it too. i swear it almost becomes sexual, like "that curve of the downtube is so sexy"

    Mine is in the living room. But not so I can look at it while I watch TV. The real reason is so I can watch TV while I work on it. I also have my 5 dirt bikes in the house for the same reason.

    That house for sale? Don't worry about cleaning up the yard. Well maybe get rid of the swingset, the trampoline and the pool. I need room for a few bikes.

    Haha, this is good stuff

    All of my bikes live inside the house, but most are either in the workshop room or the foyer. Being 120 years old, the basement is too dank to keep anything nice in, and I don't have a garage. My one retro bike lives in the living room more as a decoration but my MTB or road bike get moved in from time to time..

    Being apartment dwellers, our bikes are right behind the living room couch.
    Yes, kinda nice to pinch the tires, or stare at them when I'm fed up with all the crap on the tube after about ten minutes.

    Looking forward to having a garage again someday though. Would be nice for my lazy male self to just chuck the muddy f---er against the wall in the carhole. Now every ride involves "THE RIGAMAROLE". Poaching the building hose if I can get it, or garbage cans w/ water and rags out in the hallway. To be fair, my wife loves to clean the bikes when we ride together.

    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!

    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 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.

    Yup. Why wait? My wife and I live for today in case there is a bus with our names on it.

    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.

    Mine is stored in the living room.
    It is either that or outside

    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...

    I could hang my bikes on the walls in place of a TV and sit

    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!

    Hahaha. Yes, my baby never leaves the bike stand next to my bed (except for 3 hours everyday for my mountain rides). She's so beautiful.

    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.
