Talking Pics where your Hybrids live.

Let's see where your pride and joy hybrid lives.
Unfortunately due to my house size here, mine lives outside. That's it under the grey cover next to our letter box. Just ignore my crapper MTB in the gutter. This is the only pic I have of my hybrid's sleeping spot.

Ours are kept in our bedroom, we too live in a small place, (1 bedroom, 3rd. floor apt. no elevator). Couldn't dream of leaving them outside, they'd be gone in less than an hour, I swear we've got robbers with bolt cutters hiding around every corner, SIGH!

Sadly, I can only fit one bike in our bedroom (my side). The other 4 bikes have to stay outside. When the typhoons come, I can fit one in at the front door once everyone's inside.

Your green house would be perfect for my green bike lol....BTW, I`m drooling over your Hybrid / Cruiser / 29er. The shape, the set up and the colour are screaming my name.

Edit actually, my friend here has a similar styled bike. I`ll have to dig up a pic.

In the riding months around here (March-November) they spend their time in this one car garage with the car and the motorcycle. It's hard to believe from this pic but right now there are four bikes standing behind the car. During the winter months they live in the basement, never again will my bikes spend long periods of time in the outside shed.

Yea, green is my favorite color...just not much stuff comes in green anymore esp. vehicles & bikes! I have to say that the Sawyer's matte grey does look a bit better in person.

Sorry off subject for a moment...I mentioned my friend has a similar bike, this is it. This is an old pic, as he now has bars like yours on it.

You are a trend setter...the golffice is the same colour as your bike. Good one.

Your garage could also be a bachelor pad

I'm guessing (with help from the poster) some type of F-body under that cover?

Nice! Our's too! It was supposed to be a studio, but then we realized we loved our bikes too much to leave them in the basement storage unit.

Actually it's more of a man cave giantcfr1 and no redcon1 it's not an f-body. I do love the f-bodies and I have owned 5 second gen Firebirds over the years and came real close to buying a third gen '91' Camaro RS a couple of weeks ago. Under the cover is my 7300 mile original '86 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z that I bought new back in the day.



Sorry, I'm not trying to hijack the thread.

Very cool... I was trying to guess what was under the cover based on the rear profile... Dodge Daytona actually came to mind, but I thought... "nah, you never see any of those anymore!" My college roomate had a Chrysler Laser.

This actually looks like a Mitsubishi Starion with a slightly restyled body and Dodge badges but being a Chrysler fan from way back I would lean to the Dodge version. Correct me if i'm wrong.

The Daytona/Laser was introduced in 1984 and were FWD where as the Starion/Conquest were RWD. The Dodge Conquest was sold side by side with the Daytona until '86 I believe. The Daytona/Laser were Chrysler designed and built off the K-platform. The Dodge Stealth replaced the Conquest at Chrysler in 1990.

Thanks for telling me that, it's nice to know more about the cars I love. I've had many of the Australian Chryslers sadly Mitsubishi bought them out in 1980 or we might have had a similar car here.
There's a beautiful cars thread in Foo you could post that on too, I put some Aussie Chryslers on there and my Mitsubishi van you might be interested in.
