One good thing about this thread is I don't feel as guilty owning more bicycles than I really need. A

I use sunscreen all of the time, but "the tan" is in progress....




I've had people at work look at my hands and ask "oh, do you ride bikes a lot?".

Thanks! It was my 50th birthday gift from my partner. Our house is from 1916 and has no garage, so she thought I should have a place to store my goodies. Keeps me out of her hair as well.

This would require pre-screening, if you weren't sure about her cycling disposition, even then she may run away screaming "too many bikes, too many bikes!!!".

Maybe you need a bike room like that to convince the right girl to sign on.

I just would like to be able to move in my garage so I could make a nice neat line like that...

Thelma the dog would have to approve in any case...

Yep, good with the dog and the bikes would be a keeper.

IME, a line like that requires a room like that, I still have the 3 Paramount's in the garage with the daily rider? Merz, what PITA as their slots in the basement got consumed by overflow when they stepped out.

I'm in the market for a new (used) car and when I noticed the vehicle im interested in had run flat tires the thought came to mind..." I should ask if I can swap them for clincher tires.
