I love looking at my bikes.
All of them.
They don’t belong in the garage or basement. They belong where I can see and enjoy them every day.
I fashioned this bike hanger from a piece of plywood and dowel purchased from Home Depot. It includes a shelf to keep my helmet, shoes, and other cycling accessories handy.
I have 3 bikes in the room, and take turns riding them. Each week, I switch bikes, and the one currently being ridden hangs on this wall ready to go. The other 2 hang in a cubicle on the other side of the room fashioned out of an old clothes closet. There are shelves for all of the other accessories – shoes, helmets, bags, booties, arm warmers, hats – and a rod to hang my cycling jackets.
Very cool looking! And practical. (I’m jealous of your space and organization.)
Question: are the saddles on the wall decorative or practical? (Do you sometimes choose a specific saddle for a given ride?)
No. The saddles are real, and represent 4 decades of cycling. I have more but these are 4 different styles. I have different saddles on each of the bikes but don’t change them around. Instead, I chose the bike depending on the weather and route.
Like it-Don’t think that I will be allowed to do the same in our house!!
Luckily, I don’t have that problem. This is my room. My den where I read, watch TV, and plan my next ride.
I can only dream that one day I will have a den with my bikes decorating the wall
Well, to be honest, this took me years to develop. Initially, my bikes hung in the basement, but as my kids grew older, there were more and more bikes. Currently, they are 8 in the garage, and 3 in the basement. We are careful, and particular with our bikes. They need to be locked up and inside. So, I simply ran out of room.
