(The over-45 crowd here knows what I'm talking about). I'm setting up on a concrete patio so if it's just dirt I'll let it fall and sweep or hose it away later, but when I expect to drop some lube I toss down a short strip of plywood (about 18" by 48") and let the excess drip down onto that. I've had that piece of wood forever, we use it as a spray paint table (set up on sawhorses), we've set up fireworks on it, and done all sorts of other toxic things so that little strip of wood is probably a Superfund site by now. But it keeps doing it's job and it won't go into the landfill before I do, so I figure it's a reasonably ecological solution.

    Oh...I live in California so other than a bit of rain and cold every now and then, weather is not much of a factor in deciding to work inside or out. I know it's a luxury compared to where a lot of you guys live.

    My shop is really small, maybe 10x12; in fact so tiny that our mountain bikes are living somewhere else.

    Here goes:

    Here is my single car garage that houses a car every night. Due to this; i'm restricted to the perimeter and can't have a permanent work stand like I’d love to have. All other bikes are tucked away in a little 'cove'. I have a tool addiction.

    I'd be curious to hear your opinion of your DT Swiss truing stand. How does it compare to the Park truing stand?

    It is a very neat and accurate stand. The dials on it are super precise and it all feels like it is swiss made. I do feel the Park is quicker to use (installing wheels, getting it adjusted for different wheel sizes) and the Park offers the auto dishing (when setup properly). For me, my eye sight isn't great and I like the ability to use just one arm when trueing a wheel and go by sound, whereas the Park often requires sight once the wheel is near straight as the arms are close to the rim on either side (I know this can be fixed by sticking something in one of the arms, but it's not as good). Getting a wheel super super straight is definately easier with the precision the DT Swiss stand offers.

    With that all being said, I got it for a joke of a low price and it didn't cost me all that much more than what the Park would have. If your talking normal pricing; the Park wins hands down.

    A peak at my wheel building hand tools:

    Heres my home shop... wedged in the dark corner of the basement. Just moved into this house a month ago, so theres no shelving or peg board set up quite yet. I also need A LOT more tools, i only have the basics plus a couple specialty tools. Fortunately i work at a shop, so im not in a rush to buy everything.

    Here's my garage setup, with room at the far end for a small work out area!

    Our garage is 20' wide by 30' deep. We park the van in there most of the time and leave my sedan in the driveway. I've been doing a lot of miscellaneous projects lately and not cleaning up after myself very well.

    I'm about to start the "winter cleaning" and put up a bunch of new light fixtures.

    Here's a couple of photos of my workbench and wood storage rack not long after we moved in.

    Maybe some public embarrassment will motivate me to getting it put in proper order...

    formerly known as a seat post

    Hey Sasquatch, here's another shot:

    The &quot;What's your shop look like?&quot; thread-img_0790-%5B50%25%5D.jpg

    Nothing too ingenious - cut the seat post short, drilled a hole in it to match with a tapped hole in the handlebar and screwed those together. I threaded and bent a couple lengths of aluminum rod (from an old bicycle rack), tapped the upper two holes in the handlebar, and added the nuts so nothing would work itself loose. The bottom legs are from a curtain rod - (the fancy bends were there to start with ), and fit in place where the saddle rails would go. Adjust your "seat angle" as required and you're good to go.

    Here's my set-up. Just finished the workbench. Custom made all-welded frame under it, and a solid wood top. The wooden wall is a bike rack and divides the tandem garage in half. Commuter bikes on the other side.
    Stoked.

    I posted a pic of my truing stand here:

    The wood top is actually a door! I spent a long time looking at different options. Pre-made butcher block tops are like $300, and they can warp. Plywood's a bit cheesy. Found this on craigslist for cheap, with no holes in it at all and mint. Routered the edges 1/2" round, and varathaned it.

    Yeah, love the makita. Have an 18v drill to.
    The red thing behind it is a lego smartphone stand for music!

    A door? That's genius! I don't have a wood top because butcher block cost a fortune, but I might be able to swing a door!

    Great idea and awesome execution!

    Just make sure it's an old-style solid core door. Most are hollow nowadays.

    My garage is still a mess, but I finally built my bike rack and tire storage.I think the bike rack will see some revisions or possible a whole redesign. Not 100% happy with it, but it will do in the mean time.

    I just built a new countertop and put down 1 layer of 3/4" ACX plywood and then installed some 2 1/4" Oak Hardwood Flooring (3/4" thick) on top. Light sand and coat with Polyurethane. Very sturdy and dense.

    Props. That's a great option. It will give you the nice look of a butcher block, without the cost, and nice and flat, and repairable.

    My favorite workbench has 2x4 joined together, it is super solid and cheap. This is my heavy duty bench but not the one that I use for bikes that much. The white bench is my bike bench.

    Bikes live in the garage 3rd bay, against the wall. Directly in front of the third bay is a 'half bay' work area where all the damage is done. It's my little corner of the world (literally) and my MTB sanctuary. The only thing left to do is to put a small flat-panel TV (in place of the large photo) on the wall so I can watch football while wrenching on my bikes .

    Look up the '$6.50 Bench Repair Stand' thread in Tooltime area. All the details are there. Yes, pedals clear the vise.

    I recently did some upgrades to my home workshop in the garage. Its still a work in progress but the bulk of it is done.

    This is what I started out with when I bought the house last year......


    I re-wired the entire garage, added lights and outlets, installed plywood walls, patched the giant hole in the floor, I also reworked the setup to use the space to its maximum potential.



    The work bench area


    More of the work bench and tool area, I also have a computer setup in the shop for easy access to manuals and such.


    The tool board


    The well stocked storage area, complete with TV and DVD above for watching bike and/or dirt bike related videos


    Anti-fatigue mat


    The bike storage area, room for 4 bikes


    Details of the storage hooks, the 2x4 that the hooks mount to is screwed into the wall studs with some seriously heavy duty hardware


    I still need to add some finishing touches, and more mats would be nice.

    Here's mine:







    When I bought the house this was some sort of officey kind of room with a bunch of built-in cabinets and shelves... But the garage is a pretty small single and with the car in there for the winter there's no space for a proper work bench or anything, so I tore it all the office stuff out and built a separate workshop. Sorry about the road bike - all my mountain bikes are at work.

    The newest addition to my shop area



    I already had the stand..as you can see it isn't bolted down to the floor yet, but decided to make a clamp for the stand.



    Had to shove the base under my truck tire to catch a decent picture with a bike on it.

    My little workspace, that has never once been dined in. Park stand stays folded up unless I need to use it. The fish have a panic attack every time I take a bike down from the ceiling.

    This thread makes me too jealous, I had to stop looking. My shop is a corner (or the middle) of my room and a couple of small toolchests. My parents have a three car custom garage with a ceiling mounted winch (from an 18ft ceiling) and everything I could need... Oh to be young enough to live at home..

    This thread inspired me to get out in the garage this weekend. Limited options (apartment garage) but I could still fit a car in there if needed.

    (Crappy blackberry pic is crappy)

    I just moved but here is my shop in progress, it's almost complete. I also have two doors to the outside compared to my last bike room it was in a basement without outside access. I'll post some final pictures when it's complete.

    Mine...

    Built the bench last weekend. Smallish but simple and clean. Total cost was around $50. Park bike and wheel truing stands and a complete tool set are on their way. Nice to have a workspace but the drawback is I can only fit one car in the garage now.

    It was my first MTB as well when I was a kid! I couldn't toss it so now it's my wall art. I used cement screws to mount it to the wall

    Mr Clean: Thanks, It took me like 2 weeks to get it organized like that. I went for the solid wood backing instead of the peg board so I wouldn't be limited on how I could arrange things.

    2_WD: Thanks! I've had a few bike rooms in previous places and this one has been a work in progress for years and now it all finally came together

    here is mine when I had just finished building it a couple years ago. the first pic is before anything was put in it and the second pic is during my twin boys birthday party last year. the other pics are of me working on it. It was a hug project for me to do myself and I wouldnt do it again.LOL. its 26x36 with a 10x36 loft upstairs. We are mainly into motocross so that is why there is a motorcycle lift in the floor.

    pretty soon, it is gonna start having alot of mtb stuff in it. I am impatiently waiting for my new bike to get here!

    it was called trafficmaster and home depot used to sell it. it was way overpriced! I got lucky and was on craigslist one day and found a guy who had a total of 720 sq ft of it plus a ton of the edging(thats what i used for my baseboards too. LOL) and I ended up getting him down to $650 for all of it. it wasnt enough to do my whole so the first 8-10 feet when you come in the shop is concrete. I wouldnt have got it if it wasnt fo the price because it seems like everyone was wanting like 6-10 bucks a sq ft. for the stuff if i remember right. its been awhile so it might all have came down in price.

If you are into enduro you might know one of my buddies son. his name is dustin mullins(actually he goes by charlie in the enduro and gncc series). also, one of my other buddies is scott plessinger. he one the gncc title twice back in the 90's. I like off-road to but was always drawn more toward mx myself.

    Yea, I did some head work on one Charlie's YZ250f practice bikes when he was racing for Yamaha. His old man was here at the shop a while back looking for a KTM 350.

    oh man ,how cool! was that when he was getting support from randy hawkins team but didnt have an actual ride with them? charlie(we all call him moon) is a heck of a guy. I suppose you know teddy too? how about bob knau? we all used to ride together going to s-tree and 909 and stuff. you have a ktm dealership? scott had one here by me but closed it up and is now down in georgia running paradise mx park. I just bought a 12 350sxf myself. I havent even got to ride it yet. if you see charlie tell him "bone" said hi. see if he gets a smile on his face.

    Here's mine. Still a work in progress. Need hooks for the peg board and a shop light for above the bench. And I need to bring all my tools in from the garage.

    Here's my humble cave.







    Not much, but its Airconditioned, has its own toilet and sure has loads more space than my already cramped garage area. Just have to fix a leaking ceiling.

    Off subject, but how is everything going in Wilmington these days? I was an Aircraft Tech for Airborne Express in Wilmington back in the early 90's (lived in Hillsboro). I know a huge chunk of the local population worked at Airborne so I'm guessing it had a substantial impact on the local economy when they shut down operations ... any idea if the ABX Airpark is still being used for anything?

    Great idea using an old china cabinet for tool and fluid storage!

    Yeah I actually realllly like that setup, Small and simple! (Don't hate on me for saying this..but) I really don't need a whole garage for bikes, I enjoy a space just big enough to work in comfortably

    Some really nice setups here...

    Will have to take a picture of my (modest) setup at some point - though it's not as neat as these.

    Wanted pegboard but it's hard to get here now, so settled for MDF and mounted tools up resting on screws (at ~45deg angles).
    It works, but it's not as smart.

    I used plastic-dipped hooks - the L-shaped kind, which you can find in any hardware stores.
    Much better than plain screws.

    Hmm, I did have a quick look at our local store but there wasn't really anything suitable - screws does work fine (quite a few tools are at angles, but that's ok by me).

    Thanks. I am currently shopping around for a decent work stand. How does it work for you? Does it do what you expect it to?....I guess I am asking for a small review of it.....
