    Bike stuff in your personal space....

    So no matter how hard I try to keep my bike stuff in the garage or closet, its inevitable that stuff ends up all over the place, sometimes worse than others. As of right now I have

    To the right of my desk:
    Set of Campy Veloce Levers

    On the Kitchen table:
    cable cutter, tire levers, pair of rims on the floor.

    By the door:
    Shoes, tires, 2 computers

    So who else has random bike stuff that just can't find a home for itself?

    You are mistaken. EVERYTHING belongs to the cats, you just don't know it yet.

    One large metal , file cabinet in the garage full of bike parts and gear.. One hook in the garage keeping my extra tires in storage. Two walls mounts in the garage capable of holding my four bikes.. Two drawers of my dresser and one small dresser adjacent my bed for my favorite bike clothes near for quick access.

    Well, mine would have done 'cept they need someone to open the food, empty the litter tray, ... Oh! and provide a bit of petting on demand.

    LOL I think that is the only reason she keeps us around. I have bike stuff mostly sharing space with my books on my frigging huge bookcase. I need to carve out a spot in the hall closet though ..someday

    The garage is a bike sweat lodge, but there's an unlaced mountain wheel with a modified freehub leaning against my computer and 32 nipples on top. Plus a pair of mechanic gloves and some Sturmey axle nuts on the desk behind me next to a cup full of bearing grease. Also some LED blinkies, a spoke wrench and a rim strip.
    I'll eat it first.

    You can have it! I'm moving at the end of the month. I'm not yet sure how I'm going to remake the bike wall at the new place. Since I won't have proximity to a radiator for locking the bikes, I'm thinking of using the Saris Locking Bike Trac instead. The storage units came from IKEA, BTW.

    In one! My ex cured me of that vice thirteen years ago. Three years to go before I'll be divorced for as long as I was married.

    Living in small space enforces that. There's just plain no room for clutter and mess. But you will note that the floor should have been swept before I took that pic.

    Our two previous apartments were so small that we had bikes and bike stuff all over, in the livingroom and bedroom(s), there was no choice.

    We now live in apartment big enough to have it's own bike room (the living room at the front of the place) and a bikeshop (walk out basement).

    Here in the back living room, there are a few bike things: on the floor next to the computer desk is a bottom bracket in a box and a set of old Speedplay frog pedals. There is also a heart rate monitor hanging on the chair at the dining table. There was other bike stuff in here, but we just cleaned up a bit because we have a friend coming over for dinner.

    I moved to a two bedroom apartment. The smaller bedroom is my bike room. I should have made the larger bedroom my bike room, given that I have 5 bikes. Might make the change someday when I feel energetic.

    My road bike is in the dining room most of the time, until the wife yells at me. One of her cubby spaces on the counter have my shoes, helmet and other bike stuff in a basket. Then my battery chargers for my lights are in the silverware drawer.

    Pin spanner, headset/pedal wrench: on top of tv cabinet.

    Two new cassettes (11-34; 13-28), Hennessy Hammock (touring), MSR 10L Dromedary bag (touring); multi-purpose gear patches (touring); various barrel adjusters: on living room table.

    Suunto MC2-G *bling* Compass (touring); shortwave radio (touring); Les Stroud's Survive! (book-touring): sofa

    Bicycle Wheel (Jobst Brandt); various route cue sheets; MSR Miniworks waterfilter box (touring): on and under coffee table.

    All three rooms in the basement have been taken over to varying degrees, so there's no point in listing everything.

    My wife doesn't get as upset since I've more into bikes. Used to have motorcycles in the living room, and maybe carbs or transmissions on the kitchen table. Now there may be a bike or two in the house when it too cold or wet to play in the garage so she's pretty quiet.

    I have a bucket of bike parts next to the desk that I want to work on, polish up, or modify but that's about it for the permanent stuff.

    My bicycles graciously allow me to share the apartment with them and their parts and accessories. But then they have to. They consider me one of the accessories.

    I have bikes- a bike shed and a wife. Any bike parts in the house don't stay there long.

    Four bikes in the living room, 1 bike in the bedroom, 2 bikes in the kitchen, 2 bikes in the storage unit, truing stand on the dinner table, odd parts on the bookshelf stereo, shifters and brakes on the dinner table.

    I need two more bikes, but I'm not sure where they will go.
