    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 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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    My new vice!

    Here's my new Yost vice! Made in the USA, lifetime warranty, reversible, 6 1/2" jaws, and a swivel base. I got the price down below $250 @lowes. I rebuilt my dad's old reloading workbench to mount this on one end and a Baldor bench grinder will go on the other side. Ttyl, Fahn

    I was doing up my shed and found this thread very useful for ideas and inspiration. So thanks to all who had contributed.

    Here is the shed from the outside:



    Inside:



    I used a slatwall system for the wheel/rim wall and the tools





    Most of my tools have been collected over the past 28 or so years, so they look a bit shabby after living in toolboxes all those years.

    The spanner holder is an IKEA magnetic knife holder.

    The Park Tool one? That is a "portable" headset wrench from back in the days of threaded headset. The one on the left is a spanner for S&S couplings.

    Edit: that may have gone over my head. The correct answer is yes they are when used with metric bolts. They are imperialists otherwise.

    Soon to add a bench top bearing press, ultrasonic parts cleaner and a second bike stand. I currently have hanging storage for 9 bikes and about 20 tires. Still need to hang the retractable compressor hose.

    Seen that before. They're garage "condos" in Minneapolis. Start @ $39K + $100/month. That one is $99K (+ finishing costs)

    Just moved and the new place has a shop area. A blank slate for now, but I have the stand and beer fridge setup... the important stuff. Getting some ideas from this thread.

    A blank slate, a plan and some disposable income can be wonderful fun.

    Some of the set ups on this thread are amazing! I wish I had as much space as some of you.

    Mine is small but does the job and everything I need is close by!

    Are you concerned about security for the shed? It looks way more valuable than typical shed inventory (lawn mower lawn care)

    Shes locked up tight and I have been in the same park for years. I accidentally left the doors open for a whole day and nothing was missing.

    The "What's your shop look like?" thread-20170709_132854.jpg

    The Hubbard map on one wall and the Hubbard logo on the other. Drawers for the "important tools", bins for old parts, cables/housing, rags, manuals...On the walls are torque wrenches, ratchets, flat/philips/torx drivers, bike specific wrenches (bb, headset), cone wrenches, HS press/removers, derailleur hanger straightener...

    The "What's your shop look like?" thread-20170813_123834.jpg

    The truing stand is lower than the workbench to help when I had carpel tunnel. It slides forward and backward so I can put one of the stools there to sit on. There's also a "cutting board" that slides in and out under it so when I'm sitting there it fits between my legs. No more dropped spoke wrenches or nips!

    The "What's your shop look like?" thread-20170709_132427.jpg

    The stand is forward in this pic with the "cutting board" slid out. I have a small vice mounted with a spoke thread roller to the right.

    The "What's your shop look like?" thread-20170709_132442.jpg

    This bench is more for rebuilding wheels/forks/shocks. The press is removable with 2 wingnuts under the bench.

    I'm a bit jealous as I scroll through this thread.

    My 'workshop' is the back of my FJ Cruiser, and an Amazon cardboard box full of tools/lubes/etc. plus whatever location I'm at. Often a trailhead parking lot.

    For the more involved stuff, I have a small 1-car garage that barely fits my vehicle, so I park it outside the garage and use the floor in there (and non-existing A/C in Phoenix heat) to do whatever work needs done, then clean up, and pack everything back up.

    I do at least have one nice addition that doesn't seem to common. No space to put a full size air compressor anywhere, but I do a lot of off-roading and as a result have a 10lb CO2 tank that is usually with my vehicle. It does a fantastic job of giving me WAY more than enough air flow to get a bead started/seated.

    Damn I need a house and a full size garage...

    That's some serious leverage there on that Lee press. Might be easier to ream the pockets =)

    RCBS rockchucker!

    I use it for pressing out the bushings on rear shocks. I made a set of dies at work just for that. Maybe I'll post a pic later if I remember.

    Doh, the greens always get me mixed up. I'm all about the Dillon blue myself. Park Tool blue fits in very nicely as a result.

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

    As the starter of this thread, I'd figure I'd bump it to show some pics of the new "shop." We just moved from Boston to Vermont and wanted to set up a good shop space. Coming along nicely.

    Usually have one whole side of my split basement to play in, but I needed to be able to pull my car or truck in there, so cleaned out a corner separate from all the yard work/project crap on the other side.
    Very happy about getting a repair stand and rolling toolbox for bike stuff, recently, and having it all separate from my other tools. Just realized today that I can now move the bike around on the stand and go through my tools without even unplugging my lazy butt from the stool. Very nice compared to using a floor stand for the front or rear, hanging the other end by a strap, and digging through the cluttered assortment of tools that are always out on my other workbench.

    Finally got done overhauling one bike and moving onto the other... this is about as clean as it gets so I figured I'd snap a picture. Air compressor and washing station not visible.

    This is My Little Slice of Heaven just enough room for the bike. I do most of my bicycle work in the living room off of a folding table. Garage is more dedicated to motorcycle and car repair.

    Great shops everyone. I have to get my personal shop setup. It will be sharing space with my adventure motorcycles and stuff but no issues on space anyways.

    Will Do. I just accepted the job as bicycle tech at the local store. Awesome. Gone from being the vice president of a commercial construction company to spinning wrenches at sportchek, and I could not be happier! NO PRESSURE or stress from work anymore!
