OCP doesn't stop at the bike/kit either...

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Get this...
Today our decorator was over to help with finishing our kitchen. She knows I'm big into cycling and made this little room for myself downstairs...so she shows up with two paintings she thought would look nice on the wall down there. Now that's a good business woman!

A pix is attached.
She also told me what to do with the other wall...sand the old panel, then paint it with a light beige, then hang vintage jersey's on that bright background.

Those paintings don't make you ocp, they just mean you have bad taste.

Who died and made you the Bikeforums interior decorating critic? Everyone has their own taste. He wanted to share, he doesn't need you "Craping in his picnic basket". Just my 2 cents.

That's an original old Raleigh.
The red tricycle is in the other corner.

I kind of like those pictures not sure about the idea of vintage jerseys hanging though (reminds me of my brother hanging his football jersey from the wall for an entire year after he graduated high school)
