    When it's time for one of us to move out....you got a spot!

    Then we would actually have someone that could work on them too! :-)

    Blue Moon is the best beer in your fridge.

    I have eight rides, do I get two rooms?

    I believe we have 2 full boingers. The rest are either rigid or hardtails. No 29'ers in the quiver-sorry.
    As for bottles being so last year. Buttweiser was the year that never really existed at all. Come on now Pete....I think EVERYONE expected at least a little more from you than that!
    Regarding the Bonfire...It's my only "road" bike with gears. I have the Pista (fixed) and the green Voodoo (ss with just over 3:1 on her). The Bonfire will hopefully get me back in shape.

    WOW! The most impressive thing, however, is all those really nice bikes hanging in there without parts and stuff.

    Jeez, I;m speechless.

    Beer list please?

    I can recognize the Corona, Newcastle, Blue Moon, and is that Amstel Light? But how about a run down of what else is in there?

    Very impressive garage. Is your Seven a SS?

    LOL! i know the feeling. i moved about a year ago and had to figure out a way to pack up my tool bench. i still haven't really got it set up but that's because i keep telling myself that there isn't any sense in setting things up since i'm just going to have to move it again when the workshop is built.

    hmmm, where is the phone number for my contractor....

    You guys have motivated me to get my workshop into shape. It has great potential but the house itself has taken up most of my time....time to show it some love!

    The handle is a souvenier from Mexico and doubles as a beer security system, since nobody would think of taking Cervesa Bud.

    That's a 7.9 gallon keg of Drake's IPA. The fact that the beer in the outlet line isn't clear is one of the shortcomings of the security system.

    My garage was the first thing to get finished, but then again we hadn't moved in yet.

    I don't know what I was thinking - my guess is the asbestos in the linoleum in the house went straight to my brain. Sheet I'm giddy to get home and get crackin and a kegulator would be a perfect finish piece! Now if I can only find a Micky's tap...

    Questions for 32seventeen

    32seventeen,

    Accolades on the use of the small area and the meticulous placement of everything. Got to agree with *rt*, I want my work area to some day look as good as yours!

    Three questions in the attached picture and one extra one;

    1. Tape cabinet on the right? Did the IT dept have a down sizing sale? Ours did in the late 90's. I got 4 metal shelves, 2 large recycle bins and two swivel office chairs, all for $4. The cabinet reminded me of two of my long time buddies who started out as tape-apers (pc incorrect 80's term?) before moving on to be network gurus.

    2. Sand blaster or bio-hazard red box on the left?

    3. Those yellow disc template looking things in the middle, bike maintenace related?

    I see the wheel dish tool, but not the spoke tension guage? In a drawer or don't use one?

    Again, inspiring work area!

    Downtown Brown (referring to the beer, not a bag o' shwag)

    Haven't seen that since college out west.

    It's just 12"x12" VCT (vinyl composition tile, the stuff that you see in grocery stores) that you can get at Home Depot for around $.70 a square foot.

    About 10 hours to install in that pattern in a deep three car garage.

    Do you have four of the same color grouped together? I guess you have to put down an adhesive first? Thanks Pete, it looks great.

    Yes, It's an IBM tape cabinet, my dad found it at a second hand shop for cheap and we both bought one. They are awesome cabinets, they were built to last.

    2. Sand blaster or bio-hazard red box on the left?

    It's a blasting cabinet, I do a bunch of restoration projects and it's must have. Check out my latest restoration, pic attached.

    3. Those yellow disc template looking things in the middle, bike maintenace related?

    Those are just stickers on the front of a drawer, I think they came on Cannondale boxes. I had that drawer bolted to my bench at a shop I used to manage, and the builder used to stick them on the drawer. Dam thing won't come off!

    I see the wheel dish tool, but not the spoke tension guage? In a drawer or don't use one?

    You missed the truing stand on the right....yes, I have a wheelsmith tensionometer. I have a bunch of lesser used, bike related, tools in the drawers. You can't fit everything on a tool board.

    Again, inspiring work area!

    Thanks, I am glad you enjoyed the pics. I don't know why, but shop pics are some of my favorites.

    Nice garage!

    Andy,

    Kick-arse garage, man. The garage of my dreams!

    I would qualify to be a candidate for a roommate; 6 bikes.

    Now, can you sneak into Terminaut's garage and take some pics?

    With all these pictures of really nice looking garages (some would better qualify as well-equipped bike shops) can anyone give me some advice as to where I should set-up shop? Here's the dilemma,

    Garage- No. Up here in Canada the temperature drops to -40C and colder, I'd rather not leave my bike out in those conditions. No, the garage is not heated.

    Shed- No. The backyard is way too small as is and the largest shed I could fit back there would be cramped at best.

    Inside- Doubtful. There is one place in my house that does not have carpet, lineolium or wood (kitchen, and I'm not wrenching in the kitchen). There is a closet for the furnace/air conditioning that is concrete but I can hardly fit a bike in the door. The entire basement is finished and carpeted.

    So where do I wrench on my bike without worrying about ruining the house?!?!

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Cheers.

    hey, it is great winter training, and as far as the holds, look closely and you see the tape markers, not all are used at once. the worst part is that i don't have much space to work with.

    I have actually been in Tern's garage and it is more of a matter of crawling in than sneaking in. He just collects too much stuff. CD's, Frisbee's, Darts, car wheels and every other thing that can be done outside the house.

    When are you heading down again?????

    What about on the ceiling of your rooms?

    Cheers.
    We used to store our surfboards on the ceiling of our rooms when I lived walking distance to the beach. Maybe you can find a way to "lay them down on the ceiling?"

    Good luck!!!!

    Crap, if my wife sees this thread I'm in real trouble. I don't even recall seeing my workbench for a month or so. I'm gonna try and clean things up tomorrow, I'll try and take some before and after shots as incentive
