    Where do you store your bike? House, garage, outdoors?

    I used to store my old road bike in the garage, but now that I bought a new bike, I keep it in the house. It looks kind of odd, though, to see an item that is only used outdoors being kept indoors. So where do you guys and gals keep your bike(s)?

    Either inside in my room (trainers make nice bike stands), or inside the trunk of my car.
    Needed: Cheap Shimano right-hand 9 speed STI shifter, I broke mine and I need one that works to shift. :(

    "Wizard" Made in Hungary ladies cruiser. Age unknown. Possibly quite old. Steve Bauer sort of a mountian bike 18spd, 5spd Venture Caprice, '74 (I think) Triumph Single Speed and a stack of frames, bits and pieces.

    The Triumph is on the front porch, the Bauer and Venture are down beside it, under a tarp. All are locked. They're also under the watchful eye of Joe.

    Joe is our extremely chunky Rottie.

    I got a piece of carpet runner and have that down on the floor near the door, my 2 bikes are parked on that. It's my bike garage. I'm seriously considering hanging tools somehow on the wall above the bikes, and a picture of Lance or Eddy or someone above that!

    My bikes are less than a foot from my bed, literally. I like it that way!

    From March to December, the bike is in the back of my Subaru. Goes where I go. Ready for use.
    In the winter it sleeps in the shed in the back yard.

    The Vitus hangs vertically above the door in the bathroom closet.
    The Catamount and Colnago hang horizontally in the entryway above and to either side of the door.
    The Eddy Merckx and my wife's Centurion Master both lean against the wall in the kitchen/sitting area.

    In the garage, four hanging from the ceiling on ropes with pulleys, one on the floor, attached full-time to the bike trailer and ridden five days a week (makes it hard to hang from the ceiling). We don't seem to be in a big theft area, and this seems to work fine. Also, the master bedroom is over the garage- If you mess with the hanging bikes I'm likely to hear it.

    I drive part way to work, then bicycle in the rest of the way.

    So..my bike is usually stored in the back of my SUV.

    My Giant is generally stored in my van. It takes the place of my recently retired electric scooter (rascal). When not in the van, the bike is stored in the kitchen. My huffy is in the garage,

    With no garage or shed space, we have to keep our 2 mtbs and 2 roadies outside. They are locked to our fence (tall, privacy fence), and both have weatherproof covers. In the winter, they go down in the cellar. I don't keep them there all year because it is a real pain in the ass to bring them up and down the narrow stairs. I would love to have a garage!!!

    In the great room (aka the living room)

    Question who makes those bike stands where you roll the bike into it and it stands on its own?

    Living room and leaning against the front of the couch. Well since the couch wasn't used it now has a purpose.


    I have 4 places in life, at work on my feet, on my bike, on my computer chair, or in bed sleeping.


    I suppose if I feel to lonley I can go sleep on the couch now and be next to my bike......hahah

    Both bikes are in my bedroom on the storage rack, one above the other. The beater sits on the porch outside.
