Help, they're invading my house!

View 1:


View 2:


The black one is my fiancee's 2005 Specialized Sirrus.
The red one is my 2004 Kona Scrap.
The gray one is my 1998ish Specialized Hardrock commuter/townie bike.
The blue one is our roommate's 80's Miyata road bike, that I'm fixing for him.

They're taking over the living room. I need a garage or something.

I'm a roadie so I say keep the Miyata and get rid of the rest.
Or get rid of the television and furniture.
Or move to a larger place.

Resistance, as they say, is futile. What headlight is that in the Hardrock?

dude, you're going to wreck the brake cables on that blue bike if you don't flip it right side up

good advice for working on older roadies with non-aero brake levers: wood blocks to put under the bars when flipped over...less cable strain.

I realized this last night when I flipped it over, but didn't think that I had any wood blocks to put it on. Now that it's morning and light out, I saw there were a couple out on my balcony. The handlebars are now elevated an inch or two off the ground until I can put the wheel back on (rear axle is broken).
