My wife and i have been in "discussions" as she believes that it is inappropriate to keep my bikes in our bedroom and all her "friends" agree
Now mind you, of our families 9 bikes, only 2, our tandem and my roadie, reside in the bedroom. My logic is twofold:
1. While our garage is a 3 car, my children (well mainly my 12 yr old son) are in and out of it. As such the tandem (the most expensive, least replaceable) is in my protective custody.
2. Having them in the room is a constant reminder of my need to ride which I need. I know myself and this is one of the many tools i must use to stay accountable to myself. Out of sight, out of mind
So i ask, is it inappropriate? Is it any different than the millions of Americans with treadmills/elliptical/etc in their bedroom? Am I alone and being unreasonable? Where do you keep yours?
Lastly, I will add that our bedroom is far from small and cramped. The bikes occupy about 16 sq ft in the "sitting area" of our roughly 450 sq ft bedroom
