    I don't have that model...i have a Park PCS-9 stand. It's great. They all do similar things so you'rel ooking at more conveniences as you pay more i.e. QR clamp release vs a threaded model on the cheaper ones.

    Kind of hard to find fault with perfection. Does it always look so clean and organized?
    When you find some extra pennies. upgrade your Park clamp to the latest & greatest, a
    100-3D. It is amazing at how much more ergo-dynamic and adjustable it is. Put a shine on that apple of a shop. Great job! Someday.

    Glad to see I'm not the only one that needs light to see. For my 20x20 garage I found 7 4 foot 2 bulb florecents and another over the workbench to be just enough.

    Good lighting is a necessity for me. In our 20x30 garage I now have ten dual bulb 4' fixtures on the ceiling, four single 18" fixtures over the workbench, and a movable halogen light over the workbench.

    I remember my dad telling me you could always tell the lighting was good when you don't cast a shadow over your work.

    Thanks guys, it gets the job done. Obviously it's rarely that clean.

    The Park 100 3D clamp is somewhat intriguing. But its main advantage (having smaller jaws), I can achieve by trimming-down my existing ones. Many years of using this one has established muscle memory that I'm in no hurry to change.

    I'm a pscho about having enough light as well! This room has about a dozen 4'-two-bulbers.

    Added a shelf over the pegboard for parts storage and a hanger for non-folding tires and spare wheels.

    Marpilli, I really like your tire/wheel hanger. Think I have to add that to my shop space...

    Thanks, I stole that idea from someone else (in this thread, I think).

    It was $10 at Home Depot. Great investment, if you ask me...

    ^^^ Ha, yeah... It couldn't hurt. That's what my pile-o-tires looked like before I reorganized my garage. Some of the tires in your picture are folding tires. For all of my folding tires (and tubes) I folded them down and put each in a large heavy ziplock bag. Put all of the bags in a bin and shoved the bin on top of the cabinets.

    The hanger is for the tires I can't fold down (and wheelset).

    I searched back through the thread and found the photo that inspired me to use this hanger. Thanks, samdemo!

    Here's my shop

    Well, sort of. I designed it and helped build it. The owner is a good friend and did what every client should do: shut up and do what I tell him. The cabinet layout in the shop area is based on my personal shop space but has more drawers.

    It's ProBike Tucson. They have 650b, 29er, and road stuff. The owner is a good friend and riding partner, he hired me to design the space. we had many good miles riding along discussing what the shop would be like. These shots were taken during opening weekend, so it's a bit messy.

    My own basement shop has an L-shaped bench, with one side for general work and the short side of the L for ski tuning. Bike tools are in a rolling chest under the stairs. Like most of us, my shop is used for general household repairs/projects as well as bike repair. I used horse stall mats on the floor, super-dense 4'x6'x3/4" sheets of rubber. I can roll heavy carts on them as well as stand for hours without a sore back. Small parts are easy to see against the black rubber, assuming I keep it swept.
