    With Mrs. tdr1nka's 'bent trike and MTB happily wintering under the stairs, this is how we keep my bikes and the tag-a-long safely out of the way, here at tdr1nka towers!

    There were 5 in a bed and the little Trike said "roll over, roll over"
    So they all rolled over and one fell out
    There were 4 in the bed and the mtn bike said................

    Cheers guys, the only thing I have to watch is to make sure the pedal arms are pointing up or at 6' 2" I get a pedal smack in the forehead!

    Why ever are you not storing them in one of your many outbuildings? Surely the summerhouse would be ideal for this purpose.
     
  7. I used to keep four in teh bedroom of my one bed flat in Wolverhampton. Until my girlfriend moved in with her bike, then they all had to live in the back yard under a tarpaulin, locked to the fire escape. Now they live in the lounge of our house, but there's only three of them.

    Would now be a good time to mention that I have a double garage to keep my 1 bike in? :laugh:

    Did I not say, we all live in the green house 'cos the house is full of bikes, the stables are full of 4x4's in case we need to just pop to the shops and the summer house is full of the champagne and caviar since our extensive cellars flooded. We had planned to camp out on the golf course but you know, appearences and all that.......

    Oh I see. In that case I suggest a small cull of your domestic staff. Free up some of those bedrooms what? :biggrin:

    Come to think about it you might have a good point there.
    I have started to get a bit tired with all the parties going on in the big house while in the greenhouse I have to improvise cheese toasties on a frost heater and boil water for tea with a soldering iron.............

    My Herety used to live in a bedroom, until the kids arrived...... now resides in the garage with a few other bikes - both Roadies sit near a 'heater tube' to keep them cosy !!!

    I applaud your inventiveness :angry:.

    Wish I could raise one of my bikes up out of the way. I have 3 bikes in a tiny shed - have to turn the handlebars to get them in. There's just about room for my feet to stand inside the shed once they're all in. This makes winter maintenance a bit of a bear. Usually, I only do repairs outdoors when it's dry. There has been the odd occasion where it's been tipping down and I've had to do a fix 'en shed'. Usually results in either clothes getting oily or a bruise or two from handlebars.

    Mrs B is understanding if I have to bring a bike indoors in an emergency, but it's not the solution really. But if I buy a bigger shed, that's money I can't spend directly on my bikes! :tongue::wacko:

    How high is your shed beanz?
    Thinking you might be able to 'fly' at least one bike or store them vertically?
