Where does your bike live?

Right now it's living at the end of my bed, I dont want to leave it in the garage right now so I brough it in.

It sits at the bottom of the stairs, even though maybe it isn't the prettiest bike, I'm afraid someone is going to steal it. I worked hard for this bike, don't want to lose it.

Mine are safely locked away in the garage. The car is out under the grape arbor. Don't think the bikes mind if the garage is unheated.

The Vitus and the wife's bike hang from racks on the wall above the entry to our loft (14' ceilings are great).
The Eddy Merckx sits against the wall in the entry.
The Colnago is currently leaning against the wall next to the fish tank.
The Catamount is currently leaning against the wall between the water cooler and the entertainment system.

I'm planning on getting 3 more racks. Two will go in the entry hall and one will go in the entryway between the main living area and our bedroom.

Instead of the monogodo family using coat rack hooks for coats, they can use them for bikes. Then jackets can be draped over the saddle?

They all live with me.



The Dawg is an '07 demo bike from the shop that I did an urban ride with last night. I'll be getting the Dawg Deluxe next month. The wheel on the wall (20mm Ringlé hub laced to Mavic 729) will be going on it when I get the RockShox Pike coil (hopefully for Christmas).

Our dining room is also our bike room. One road bike, one hybrid and two folders, along with some spare wheels, bike bags, a pair of floor pumps, panniers (etc) and, of course, two tool carts. What dining room table??

At home...in the basement (walk out basement). The road bike is currently hanging from the ceiling joists as is my son's bike. My mtb (winter commuter) is patiently waiting for me on the first deck in the atrium of my building. I don't make it stay outside in the cold.

We are in the same boat.

Our dining room is our bike room as well. We are cramped for space in our little condo.

But we have floor to ceiling racks with two bikes on each rack.
We have storage bins for bike clothing, bike tools, everything cramped into dining room. I can't wait tell we buy a house some day and the bikes have their own rooms.

My bikes are in my bedroom, locked to a greenlee box which you guessed it, is full of guns.

My bike is in the spare bedroom. It's the only thing in there so I guess I can say it has it's own room.

Man, I live in a condo, we got bikes everywhere. My son's Allez and the spare Sirrus hang in the stairway going to the third floor. My daughter's Finest has both wheels removed and is in a closet under the stairs going to the second floor, my Allez and my wife's Bacchetta Cafe are in the dining room. It gets hard to make room for a Christmas tree, but we manage. For the most part everything but the Sirrus live in the living room, since that's closest to the front door, and the bikes have to get out!

All over my apartment. Two in the spare room, one in the bedroom, one in the hallway and one in the kitchen. I don't have a lot of space, so the bikes gotta go somewhere!

Currently in the little shed at the back off the townhouse.

In a few months will be in a 2 car garage that only will have one car in it.
