    I no longer have a garage. Girlon, that looks more like a basement.

    I bet your wife loves that... (or whoever)

    The photos of my Brodie are from our dining room as the house we bought is being torn down (to get rebuilt) and I no longer have a basement or a garage.

    Oh, yeah. As you can see, it's the only saddle that doesn't make me squirm so it's kind of embarrassing but it goes on all my mtbs.

    My wife rocks mens saddles on most of her rides too. I'm guessing your hips aren't super wide....

    I'll try to post a garage pic tomorrow, it's at the other end of my commute right now!

    this used to be my garage

    then a move around


    then a tiny little room


    ended up using the balcony instead


    now i have a decent sized spare room... but no picks as its a jumble

    Nice Mik ...
    Moving sucks.
    About to buy a 12x20 wood shed into which i plan move the crap from the garage so I can have workable space. Which will mean that I put yet more crap in the garage in it so I can't work on anything.

    Put me on the list of "wish I had a garage." The pic below is from Connecticut, where I had a full basement room to tinker in. Despite the chilly appearance, even in the winter it was super warm too, thanks to the heating units on the other side of a thin wooden wall. Now in California I am stuck with a pile of bikes in the corner of my bedroom, and a shed for the tools. Big build days mean I drag everything out on the deck....

    Hey GOB, is that a can of Foster's Lager on the floor beneath you saddles? If so, nice choice. Still working up the nerve to post "The garage that time forgot". Somewhere in there is the box of brake levers that has gone AWOL for the past two weeks.

    Surprisingly light and responsive.
    The Ultimate that's hanging is mostly XTR.
    The steel-lugged carbon on the stand will be all XC-Pro.

    Here is my before and after.




    This isn't the most current pic but you can see the general idea. I currently have three bikes hanging on the right side with an additional small wall box next to the large cabinet. I also unfortunately have a lot more lawn equipment taking up precious space.

    my studio apt.
    the parts bikes are in one closet with wheels, the complete bikes are parked either next to the stand/rack (an old thrift store clothing rack works OK...gotta find a way to put a real clamp on it lol) or in the hallway.

    I didn't even realize that this was the VRC thread. Does it count that my garage was built in 1963? The bike in my photos was from 2007-08.

    My garage was packed with stuff, 4 bikes, lawn mower, pressure washer, camping stuff, kayaking stuff, gas cans, etc. I had a yz250 in there too not long ago.

    So I built this over the last 4 weekends:

    Attachment 771221

    And now I've got room to move. Much cleaner. My bike rack in the pic below fell last night so I need to redesign. Wasn't sold on that anyhow, probably reconfigure to get more space.

    Also, you can't see it but there's a 42" hdtv hanging on the back wall with a receiver and speakers on a shelf.

    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.

    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".

    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.

    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. :p

    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.
