    Show us your MTB shrine
    Credit goes to Nspace for the idea for this thread. We all have a room in the house where we keep our bike memorabilia/keepsakes etc. Mine is in my basement office. Here's a picture. Let's see yours'...

    My bike shrine is currently under construction (and will be conveniently located).

    One shot from the bottom of the stairs showing a 12" supercycle mounted to the trainer for my 4yr old daughter with my workshop and some old frames on the background. Second shot is the current rack of bikes and some recent race plates, prizes, and blue mountain bike park passes.

    The really bright object is a Hi-Vis vest I wear from time to time when riding in the city in the dark. Surprising how bright it is.

    Not so much a shrine as a space that has accumulated about 25 years worth of riding detritus.

    GM/Nerdgirl's workshop is one of the coolest I've seen for sure A+. The iron wood burning stove (not pictured) is especially cool.

    I will post my workshop up later when I can take a decent photo. Need to move some things around which I've been putting off.

    Pic of the garage when I got it set up after first moving in. Above the work bench is now a full set of kitchen cabinets we pulled out of a house that was being demolished. Also beer fridge has been added under the work bench, another free item from trolling craigslist.

    We moved into our first place not too long ago. My workshop was last on my wife's priority list so now that we have the rest of the place in order, I was able to find some time to spend organizing my bike workshop/man cave in our unfinished basement.

    Thread is making me anxious!

    Big changes came and the bike cave needed an overhaul. Flat screen and beer fridge were unplugged, work bench ripped out, walls torn down. There is now heaps of bikes, piles of parts, messes of tools strewn about and great visions....just need a free weekend to execute and the courage to go to ikea and acquire some storage solutions.

    Well, I think Enduramil may have a picture of himself up as well. It seems we have identified the TWO ECMTB's that have never met a mirror they were unhappy with.

    I'm back here now. At least for a while. Just down the road from the Hornby Island ferry.

    Nope. If you look at this pic that is female. Specifically Caledon's own Lisa Bentley.

    Like you Tom, it has taken longer then I woul like to get it done. Have a huge pile of stuff in the area after moving. Tool wall still has away to go as have files and other bits to go up. Next big part is the wall pic right. Insulate and plywood to hang bikes, tires and wheels.

    Full disclosure here, folks...I have two bike shrines. The previous photograph was the Outer Shrine. Here is the Inner Sanctum, where all the wrenching takes place...

    I should have snapped an updated picture this morning. Place is a disaster. Tools everywhere, drywall scraps all over place, a right mess.

    I have great plans for my garage. Need to sit down and draft it out on paper.

    I'm surprised no one is photoshopping in the giant rabid guard dog, alligator or King Cobra snake to dissuade thieves from seeking out said shrines.

    The dog below with the glowing robot eyes is only mildly unsettling, not terror inspiring.

    I am the deterrent.
