    Nice checkers! Clean and practical garage. I'd be lucky to fit a car in mine.

    That's why I have the other two bays, you know, for the clutter.

    And then you get to pick your color. You might need to etch if the concrete is really dirty.

    - a bike
    - a stand
    - a free standing vise
    - a toolbox with only the stuff i need

    Pipes10, very nice setup! Can you tell us what hooks you are using to hold your bikes? What prevents them from wobbling side to side and maybe a fall? Just gravity? Does the hook somehow stabilize the wheel? Thanks

    The wheel sits in the hook while the other wheel rests on the wall.

    I got them all on sale. The tops were $49.00 and the full height ones were $125.00 if I'm not mistaken. I believe the bases go on sale for $99.00.

    They are on sale every few weeks for half off if you are looking to get some. They aren't very heavy duty but they do the trick for sorting out the garage.

    Some sweet, inspirational setups in here. Lots of good ideas. Mine is still a work in progress. I did do a peg board but still keep most of my tools in the tool box or drawers.

    That seems to be one of the biggest decisions. Hang the tools or keep them in storage.

    Used a bumpout in the garage for my workshop. Also, installed a 2 stage air compressor and plumbed that to 4 locations for my air tools and a drop-down over the bike stand.

    ^^ very cool setup rockman (& nice large space).

    Would be interested to see how you plumbed your pneumatic setup.

    I used these sweet clamps with the copper pipe. It's a nice clean look but pricey little buggers.

    You got everything sorted. Lots of room to be organized with an open concept such as that. Very clean stuff.

    Grey one on far left is 2010 Turner 5spot since recycled for new RFX. Others are:
    1997 Moots YBB converted to singlespeed.
    1991 Bridgestone MB1
    1997 Specialized S Works wifey's wedding present to herself
    Voodoo Bizango kick me down from Joe Murray


    I've got a 1993 Ventana Santana Tandem but my wife and daughters won't ride with me anymore. They prefer their own bikes. Had some other bikes but they were stolen.

    The "What's your shop look like?" thread

    I took a corner of the garage and just assembled this work bench I got for Christmas. I also already have a Feedback Pro-Elite work stand. Not perfect, but it's mine.

    In the blue box is a Park Tool AK-37 tool kit. I just need some peg hooks to get the tools out of the boxes. Craftsman for other general use tools.

    Yea. I'm pretty sure she got it at Harbor Freight. Light bar was included in the box as well.

    Thanks!

    My shop in progress. Still need to do some finishing touches and get some more lighting. Best thing of all is I can work on a bike even when both the truck and car pulled into the garage.

    Very clean and organized, good looking shop, but are those golf clubs? I thought the only good use of a golf course was cross!

    The "What's your shop look like?" thread-img_2847-1-.jpg

    Here is a picture of my messy shop. Gonna clean it out over the weekend and repost some after pics. This was part of a large remodel of the house so I gotta do what I want with the garage from scratch.

    - The workbench or table top is actually a repurposed door from the house and installed with two large triangular brackets
    - The walls are actually wooden floorboards and re-stained to that color
    - Chandelier was picked up at a flea market
    - Spin bike I picked up for $150 for the days I can't make it out to the trails
    - I use the Gladiator organization system and it installs easily and incredibly strong
    - My quiver includes a Santa Cruz Bronson 2015, Specialized Camber 2012, GT Fury 2014, Trek Emonda 2015, and Bianchi Europa 1993 as well as an old Trek Hybrid. I think I got everything covered for now.
    - I have a Park stand that I use mainly for maintenance and light repairs. I take most of my larger repairs to the LBS as I want to show my support and simply don't have time or the expertise (though I'm learning)

    Looking to put some more organization where I can hang up my tools as I hope to accumulate more. I also donate a lot of my old parts to goodwill or smaller bike shops hoping that they can recycle the parts.

    Loving this thread and hoping to keep it going!!

    I just moved and even though the house is bigger, I lost much of my garage space........my mother-in-law moved into the finished basement, so the two car garage is holding more crap..."SIGH". Anyway, half of the garage will be my man/bike/tool cave. I am planning it out now. My first question is bike storage.....hanging your bike vertically along the wall...... don't know if that will affect my full-susser suspension (fluid in the fork/shock).....will it place tension on headset bearings, etc? I have considered the horizontal mounts, but won't be able to store as many bikes. OH THE AGONY! Already sold one of my bikes so I will have more space! very sad day.
    I love 'Murica!

    Sus should be fine... maybe good for it actually. It can help by "oiling" the seals. Hydro brakes on the other hand may suffer if they're not bled well.

    Anyway, good luck with the new cave and be sure to post up with any progress.
