Bicycle Mancave Extention! Bike Porn

I built onto the existing mancave and finished the rest of the basement.





Hey guys,

I finished the rest of the basement and added another bicycle show room.. Check it out. Let me know your thoughts.

With your permission, I will use your pictures when my wife says to me, "don't you have enough bikes?"

Seriously, that is one neat set-up. And the bikes aren't bad either!

I like the modern look but with the weathered siding on the walls. It's starting to look like a museum!

Nicely done. Especially the lighting in the work area - this aspect is probably where we rarely have the light we need.

Thank you for giving the rest of us proof to show our wives that we're not yet as crazy as they think!

Sure, show your wife. Let me be the example of bicycle collecting craziness! LOL

I am very lucky to have an understanding wife and the square footage in the basement for my addiction.

is your wife prepared for the hate mail from the other wives of bike nerds?? She has certainly set a high standard for accommodating our unusual passion!

Looks outstanding, and I look forward to more quick videos highlighting each of your wonderful bikes.

And another thing.

Where are you supposed to get a decent hot dog. It ain't a proper track if you can't buy a decent hot dog. The pop corn stand is great but it needs a bit more IMHO.

I am trying to finish the last details of my man cave. I really only called that ironically. Now that the potential has been revealed it seems to be called the "woman cave"
