    Latest project moving 4 from shed to sun room

    With both of my sons moving in the last few months, my bike shed was suddenly filled with speakers, end tables, sports gear - basically anything they want but don't have room for in their new temporary homes. Getting to the bikes that I ride most often was a chore - moving this out of the way, shifting this and that, etc. Finally, I was able to get the time to set up two racks in our sun room and now have much easier access to the four bikes I ride most often. 4 in sun room.jpg I'm am so thankful for my wife who is tolerant of my bike passion.

    You got a great wife, and that is a nice sun room, made even nicer by the bike "decorations!"

    Nice
    The only thing that would concern me is that they are visible from outside the house and, as such, could be advertisement for any thief that happens by.

    It looks like they all are locked up although that will only slow someone down not really stop them

    Nice!

    Your bikes will enjoy being able to look out the window. I know mine do.

    Very cool. My wife lets me do overhauls on the kitchen counter when needed.

    I suspect the combination of locks and the dogs will work as well as anything.

    If I were to attempt that, the headline would read..."Avid Local Biker Dies In Mysterious Maintanance Accident" A spoke wrench would be found driven up my nose into my pre-frontal lobe...

    My wife doesn't tolerate any bike related items visible in any occupiable part of the house. No questions...or I die. Did I say that I love her very much?

    In the divorce, my ex got the dining table, so now there's space in the dining room for parking bikes.

    Yes, they do. But what they really like is the regular spa treatment.

    I'd forgotten that you do this. And, I might suggest that you remove the pump first next time. I think getting shampoo in the pump is like getting shampoo in your eyes...not at all fun. Of course, you may be using a "tear free" baby shampoo, in which case everything should be OK.

    Where does your wife keep her bikes?
    If you don't know the way, you shouldn't be going there.

    I wouldn't want the expense of a second shed given the sunroom already exists and the current shed will have room at sometime in the future. The racks are from Performance Bike: http://www.performancebike.com/bikes...400028__400028
