To call it a display is a bit of a stretch, this is what happens when you live in a top floor apartment with no garden shed or garage to store bike bits. It was the spare room but is now the spares room. Like Bianchigirll 's room but significantly messier you could play where's Waldo spotting various Campag swag scattered around.

The problem with filling the spare room with spares is there's not enough room in there for all the bikes, so before you know it they are infiltrating into other areas of the apartment, and without a significant other keeping me in check, it could be said things have already got out of control. . Apologies to those with an obsessive compulsive tidying disorder, these pics may cause a distress seizure.

There's no C&V in the bathroom or kitchen......yet

She didn't like the finished bike either. I don't know what her problem is so it hangs in the garage now,

I must admit at first glance I thought the artwork on the shelf on the top right was made out of old chainrings

I put a racing bike up on the plant shelf above our entryway once.....Mrs. r0ckh0und removed in short order. I'm pretty sure she didn't like it because she had to climb a 10' ladder to get it down.
They say I'm lazy but it takes all my time.

The wife does not approve of placement in the house. However, I have managed to rotate the better-looking ones into the telework office.

Not intended to be a display but storage above my work bench in the garage, since someone else did a pic.

The garage can be somewhat of a display when needed.

Bikes don't stand alone. They are two tired.
