    My current shop, in my basement rec room. Long term plans are to remove the carpeting and replace it with a rubber floor and redo the lighting and trim, but it works.

    Nice space. I would kill for heated place to work on my bikes. We haven't climbed out of the single digits all week. And as a former carpenter by trade nice work on the tool hanging.

    I had to make maximum use of the limited space I had to work with next to the furnace. (warm in the winter and cool in the summer!) The Park Tool Mechanics stands are custom mounted, one on the wall and one on the ceiling/floor joists.

    Stainless steel bench top.






    This is one of the best layouts I've seen in a while. ManCave award...

    Even a Pro Bike shop Mechanic would be envious. I'd love to see more detailed photos of the cabinet drawers. I think I'm going to try to duplicate your layout. I'd like to know how you mounted those wood pieces that hold the tools. and what's the back dark piece they are mounted to?

    You mean mine? The dark piece is a giant sheet of 18 gauge steel (cost like 70 bucks from a local sheet metal place). The holders all have multiple rare earth magnets recessed into the back that stick to the sheet metal, with a small square of fine sandpaper glued overtop to keep them from sliding. Works very well (better than originally expected, actually). They hold very strongly, but can be pulled off and rearranged pretty much however I like, which is what I was looking for without having to do pegboard (since I don't like pegboard).

    My dad is an amateur woodworker with a super nice woodshop and I do a lot of furniture building at his place, so the tool holders were little extra projects I would do between tasks on furniture. For the last year or so, whenever I went to his place to work on furniture I'd bring a box of tools with me and build a few holders when I had time. I still have a few things left to build holders for, but most of them are done.

    I can take another photo of the drawer if you want. Not sure what else there is to see. Its a big flat drawer with a bunch of little compartments in it. I built everything myself, mostly out of 3/4 maple ply (the benchtop and the drawer units) and 1/2" baltic birch (the European 9 ply stuff, used for all the drawers).

    thanks for the info. I'll start with the metal piece first. Then I guess I'll do a crash course in cabinet making. Don't have a clue about woods.

    I redid my shop some, I pulled the bikes off the floor and hung them and now there is a ton more floor space, I was also able to add a nice chair with all the extra room.

    What type of bearing are those installation bushings designed for?

    Thanks, were hoping they would be BB30.. The BB30 press bushings I have only fit on the threaded portion of my HHP2, not on the hex shaft portion. Quite annoying to have to spin the handle 20 times to remove them, kinda defeats the purpose of having the quick release on the other end.

    It's actually not a Cannondale, It's a custom made aluminum trials bike.

    Here's a picture of it when it was new:

    Everybody was correct about the hooks, they work well, I had to redo the rubber protective pieces on the actual hooks (waterproofing electrical tape with regular electrical tape over it). My Fargo fully loaded weighs in the mid 30's and the hooks are fine.

    Hey it's cool, I do have a Cannondale that's made in America too, but not a custom made frame like my trials bike! It's a pretty amazing built machine if you like handcrafted bikes, you don't see many hydroformed and CNC'd custom aluminum bikes out there often and this one is definitely a masterpiece!
