What a shame to see all these beautiful bikes unused, forcing manufacturers to produce new stuff instead..

Well, that’s what they’re in business to do, anyway. But yeah, agreed it’s a shame- lots of stuff goes unused that would’ve been valued & enjoyed by people who couldn’t afford it, or didn’t get the opportunity.

Great googly-moogly. How many lovely French city bikes can you have? I just want a few Guidonnet levers, and Ideale saddles please. And bells. And fenders. And 650B wheelsets. And frames. And racks.

When you have to stack them 2 high, you know you've got issues.

At least yours are very good machines in great shape. I could definitely use more space, myself.

Nah. These are old French bikes .... in France. Much like a shed full of chain store mountain bikes in the US. I'm guessing that the owner picked them up for peanuts and many would have been scrapped if they hadn't. So while I wholeheartedly agree with keeping these things rolling, as opposed to making new bikes, I don't feel it is a shame. I am actually glad someone saved them.

This looks like someone went through and bought every road bike on the local CL. Good in them; better on their SO!

In another couple of years, the stretch goal is to expand.

Is anyone else impressed that so many of them are evenly placed and upright? Without hooks or racks or guides this is not easy to go, or long-lasting.

I thought so too but look close to the floor, rear wheel. Triangular bike stands, smaller than the norm.
You'd hate to do the domino thing in that room.

One clean out I did a few years ago got me a few dozen triangle type display stands, the best set up are the one's that group a dozen or more bikes on one stand in a row, that way removing one bike doesn't mean having to be so careful not to bump the one next to it.
Single stands work but they need more space. What I did in one trailer I use for storage is to hang a beam of hooks up high on the wall, so the one row of bikes is hanging by a wheel on a hook, and the other row is on the floor on display stands. It lets me alternate and save some space. A second row of double hooks above the row sitting on the grown allows me to store wheels, frames and a few full bikes hanging from above as well. It let me really maximize the space in a 40ft container for storage.
Packed that tight though they're still tough to get at if the one you need is either on the wall or hanging above the row on the ground, especially if its a heavier bike.
