    Adding to the stable

    It's rare that the bikes AND the garage are all clean at the same time so I finally got some pics of my current stable of rides. Hello Superfly ...but goodbye Top Fuel. Fly is stock except for Selle Italia SLK seat and carbon Bontrager XXX lite carbon riser bars.

    I also had to post this before I say good bye to the Trek at this weekend's GABA swap meet here in Tucson. It was part of the deal I made with my better half in order to get the new ride.

    At least it will be immortalized in the forums now.

    Part of me is tempted to tell the wife I couldn't find a buyer because of the economy and that it's just better if I keep it.

    Looking at these against the plain white of my garage makes me realize I need to man cave that space out some more.

    As a side note the Fuji is a surprisingly well performing ride.

    dude, where's all your crap? I have a two car garage and it's lined with gear! We just had a garage sale today and we still have more stuff for another sale tomarrow... And it's the cleanest my garage has ever been. You need to come to my yard sale and load up on some junk for that pretty garage and get something to lean those bikes on instead of the bare walls.

    The wife was complaining that we couldn't get even one vehicle in the garage so everything has been pushed over to the other side of the garage. I have a decent little work area, bike stand etc. I plan on turning it more into a man cave. There is a an awesome thread on the forums I can use for inspiration. Just search the forums for "man cave" to see what I am talking about.

    Right now I am looking for a good wall storage solution for the bikes.

    Dude...that is one bare looking garage. When you go to the swap meet, buy some bike posters/signs/schwag to hang on the wall. Or at least graffiti it up with some beer posters.

    BTW -- what Fuji Team is that? I own a 2005 Fuji Professional, which has the C-7 carbon frame (Team and Team Pro have C-4) and full Dura Ace. They now call my bike the "Team RC". Fuji Teams are absolutely fantastic road bikes. I love mine. Enjoy the ride.

    Thx...Doug

    haha...maybe I need to take a picture of all the crap that is on the other side of the garage.

    The Fuji road bike is the 07 Team. My wife and I were going to "share" it but that proved problematic. Plus it was a bit too small so I picked up the Cannondale last spring.

    Mtn biking is my first love but the occasional road ride is fun and fast.

    did it sell?

    When I left the swap, you still had it. So did the economy take a down turn and allow you to keep it?

    Nope, still got it. Most of what I saw sell that day were parts and accessories. The only full builds I saw were in the $400 - $800 range and most of those were road bikes. I guess I will try Craigslist next.
