    DC and Laffeaux are like the Odd Couple. DC even has a drip pan! How's the rollers working out, Laffeaux?

    Great pictures everybody. I love these shots!

    DC's shop is scary clean. I wonder what his sock drawer looks like?
    Zip ties? Not on my bike!

    Want:
    650B rims or wheel set. 80's vintage 32 or 36 x 135mm

    So which one of us is Oscar?

    The rollers are working out. It took a of tries to get used to them, but keeping my balance on them isn't too hard now.

    Haha, I'm so glad to see I'm not the only one without a workspace. We moved from a house with a two-car garage and now I have to keep my bikes and tools in the attic.

    That chart is perfect!! At least 50% of every job is trying to find the 5mm allen wrench that I put down when I took a sip out of the beer bottle.

    I can't figure out where the 80(ish)% trying to find tools comes from.











    I'll admit the allen ke drawer is a bit disorganized, but I have a set of Eklund T handles in a rack bolted to the side of the workbench which are my go-to wrenches, so I rarely have to dig through the ones in the drawer.

    Ha! That's great. I've had a goal for years to get my tools more organized. But never enough time to even keep my bikes dialed so therefore no time to organize the tools.

    Reminds me of the quote: "I'm way too busy to get organized".

    condo garage/dining room

    It's another Friday night listening to Pandora and surfing classifieds for VRC parts and even though I don't have a garage, I'll play as well as I can...
    I have to share my bike hobby with my reef hobby/business.
    Anyone trade bike parts for coral?

    I went with a friend of mine because he had to go buy water for his tanks. What.A.Pain! Very pretty though. Emotionless fish are high maintenance!

    I make my own water- way easier than buying it. Fish do have emotions and they're really not as maintenance intensive as a dog or a cat. I've been growing corals and doing maintenance for 19 years now so it's kinda easy to me.

    They have emotion?! That's cool! I'll have to check that out. Pretty neat about your coral growing though.

    Garage Shots

    Here is mine in its winterized state. When the bikes come off the wall in spring, it becomes a real mess.

    I know right? Bumpity bump. I love workbenches and kitchens. I need ideas on how to organize my crap better so you handy dandy dudes are really good at it.

    Is your garage heated? I thought it was a cliche that everybody in minn. had a canoe but apparently it's true based on a poll of one.

    There are a lot of canoes here. Mine is made by wenonah canoe just a few miles from home. I bought it used from the employee that hand laid the Kevlar and put a custom screening in the bow. He gets to buy/make a canoe a year for personal use and sale. Actually pretty cool.

    As for heated, no. Some do have a gas heater or geothermal floors. It's very costly to keep warm. I have a small space heater and a halogen light to pull out when I want to warm it slightly warmer. It is insulated but that only means it is frozen instead of frozen completely solid.

    We will be cleaning the garage soon if it stays nice. Pressure washing the floor to get the salt and crude out. Shuffling stuff around to make room. I plan on building a small shed to put the snow blower and other large seasonal items into a home.

    Those aren't windows. There's four 4-bulb fluorescent fixtures in the walls. Gives nice shadowless lighting. I've got the entertainment dialed. Cable, DVD, media player, and laptop all hooked into the monitor/4.1 system.

    Local and custom manufactured. I do use catalog stock hardware sometimes though. On that job I did to keep costs down. It was a 35 sheet job. That's a lot of melamine. 2.5 tons just about. That doesn't include the 40 some odd drawers.
