    socalers (and honorary socalers) where do you store your bike(s)?

    where do you keep your bike(s) and if you have a garage and keep the bikes in the house... which room and why IN the house and not in the garage?

    My bikes live in my apartment. I don't have a private garage, so that's the only place where they would be reasonably secure.
    If you notice this notice then you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    I've started keeping them in the living room. I used to leave them locked up on a rack on the patio, but that didn't keep someone from taking one of my son's BMX bikes so inside they came.

    *sigh*... yes! lol! i KNEW someone would mention that..... i workout in the garage...the bike wall is to my left.... the mirrors are for checking form when working out (there is also one on the "front" wall)

    rather than just put one or two... cuz i don't always stand in the same spot... we put up one between each bike to make it look better... more even!

    side note: bailey (the cat) sits in front of the mirrors looking into them.... we think he's wondering how to get into the "other room" that he sees! it's quite comical... and he does it EVERY day or every time he gets to go into the garage (they.... dog and cats... get to hang out... out there with me when i work out!)

    Helps in locating a bike that matches the jersey/jacket/helmet?

    BTW, that's very organized. Makes me want to tidy up my apartment.

    The bikes stay inside! Why? Cause I'm the man of the house and I call the shots!

    That and we don't have a garage, but two extra bedrooms.

    I keep mine on the planet Mars, and the little green men bring it to me every time I want to go on a ride. They are using up a lot of gas this year...

    The road bike leans against the kitchen/breakfast nook wall. Mountain bike and BMX and wife's bike locked up down in the garage of our complex.

    Had sold my house last year to get a jump on grad school - can't wait to have a place we can call our own with our own garage! (Working on my cars at 2am in a shared underground garage is sometimes scary as I have mental pictures of someone creeping up behind me with a crowbar!!)

    Hmm...yeah, since Cali is OCP, she needs to pick the bike that matches the outfit. Must be nice to pick out a bike like picking clothes out of the closet!

    Can you still park the cars inside??

    I just bought the short arm kit or you can just buy the V blocks and I stuck two sets on the upper arms so my road bike sits on the inside(its narrow) then my hardtail is on the outside, then on the bottom, I hang my full suspension. I have an Enduro so I just hook the rear seat triangle and the front sits on the ground....
    Cant we all just ride along???
