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

My GF and I moved into a new place together.

Very nice looking btw. Whats that in the silver box on the shelf?
That's correct; white bike, no brakes, only touches the track.

Box on top is a small parts bin; cogs, chain rings, screws, etc.

I have a hidden shelving unit behind the book case, positioned perpendicularly, for more storage.

um ok. first of all. i take back everything i said in this thread because clearly the OP is a down ass dude who could probably drop me.

second of all, i am not a troll, i have a lot of information to contribute but i often choose not to because i already know everything about cycling and don't need to get involved in arguments with a bunch of noobs.

third of all, i could probably drop you. i may or may not redact this in the future if you post a video of yourself hauling ass or your usac race record.

fourth, i haven't been permanently banned because i do not commit any ban worthy offenses. i am well acquainted with what i can and can not do on BF (thanks mods! you guys do god's work!). if i were to insult another member (which i never do) that would be a ban worthy offense. also, members have to receive a certain number of infractions or fall under certain different criteria to be permabanned. my infractions will expire soon and after that period i will not commit any offenses and i will never be permabanned.

These are definitely the way to go. I do not feel comfortable with solutions that require you to bolt them to the ceiling or walls. I'm picking up a third, soon.

For somebody who knows everything about cycling you sure missed the boat on what the OP has going on.

He can't find the harbor much less the dock. Forget the boat.

She might feel jealous and envious, because she knows that the romance between men and women are only temporary. However, the bond between man and bicycle, is eternal...

She should feel threatened, get a load of that white single speed up at the top. That's just hot!

Mmmmh! Yummy!
