Figuring out the space now at my new place.
Living room full of bikes that need to be moved.
[img][/img]
Going to join these bikes in a corner of the basement.
[img][/img]
[img][/img]
Tools tucked in a random room.
[img][/img]
Maybe one day these bikes will be finished and out of the basement.
[img][/img]
Random open space that needs to be optimized somehow.

And of course there's piles of parts scattered around the house that need to be organized some how. But that will probably happen at the same time i actually buy a camera.

Built a workbench today from a pallet and some 2x4s.

Across from the workbench is daily use stuff.

And new storage for bikes in my room.

I gave Emor the trailer that was taking up room in my garage so I had room to put up a basic rack for the little bikes

Heather has been bugging me to put up my bikes in our spare room. kinda dreading mostly because then i have to rearrange everything. kinda want to paint the room... or at least the wall first. but that also means a weekend where i'm not racing or something.

I'm in the process of organizing my tiny ass garage. Basically shit just got thrown in when we moved in and emptied the storage unit. spencer work area is vastly improved. fridge under the work bench. tore out some built in shelving to fit some soon to come heavier tools.

VT, this tiny garage that I've been throwing stuff into will make you feel better about yours.

and bonus spare bedroom

I'm getting upset about our workshop spencer space. I work on my bikes pretty infrequently but my roommate is always tinkering. The space is a mess and very cluttered with his errant wheels and frames of which he has far too many.

No matter how often I try to tidy up it's just a wreck. And I am not a tidy person. It bothers me that the space I made and I take care of but I use so infrequently is such a disaster. I kind of wish I had not made such a space.

Probably too personal for 'bikes' but I think he's using the space to get time away from his live-in girlfriend. He hides out in there tinkering on nothing while she looks at pinterest.

VT, Mines only the first 7 feet of a 2 car garage. If you think that's full you should see what my wife and MIL have done to the rest of it...

Straws, that sucks, man.

My "garage" isn't even wide enough to fit a modern car. It's basically a shed that's on the city plans as a garage because it's at the end of the driveway.

My spencer mess is a little less of a spencer mess. Now it's just a regular mess.

We already discussed fork stand in consumption thread. I (sometimes) want to mindlessly pedal while I watch something on the TV. This is one of those times. AYHSMB.

@ rando it's stable. I can't see how it would be otherwise, unless someone intentionally rocked left and right real hard.

Horrible photo of the horrible progress I've made on getting the spencer room set.

The racks were actually a $40 ikea hack. Waiting for my roomate to come back from Barbados so he can help me move the kayak so I can build another couple racks and bring more bikes up from the basement. And another shelf. Also, I have no idea where to put the drift trike I got from VTregularbike.

Probably not. The only things with wheels in my backyard are the motorbikes and the grill. Maybe I can put a hook on a wall and store it front wheel up pedicab style?

Put it in blocks so it's a chair when not being ridden.

Sup girl and I moved into a new place. My spencer mess area, for now, is a corner between the front hallway and the TV area. Tools are in a closet out of picture. Technically I can use that hallway (it's also part of the apartment) as ancillary spencer mess area, but will try my best to keep it clear.

I like that spencer-stand/rail thing... did you buy it, or mod something to make it?

Previous tenants conveniently left it behind. Seems like a fairly standard, mass-produced spencer rack. Does the job. Don't know the brand.

Had to move somewhat unexpectedly. Gutted garage down to the studs, wired up a 50amp feed, lighting, plywood walls, doors, etc. About 80% through rebuilding but functional.

Thanks bros. I have been overworking my body evenings and weekends to get the garage and house fixed up. Because of the market on this here island you shouldn't put money into your house (investment-wise) so I've done all the labor except the new electrical panel. Didn't want any of this on my plate until winter but my landlord situation imploded so it happened.

Anyway hooklyfe is pretty sweet and it's primo hooklyfe with enough room for all bars to be oriented up even with my incoming frame. 64 feet of T8 lighting is whoa. Really like turning around at the bench grinder to use the drill press. Better pictures with more shopdog.
