More of a stone outbuilding than a shed. I was thinking a nice wood burning stove, stone floor, stone walls nicely pointed, fitted 'garage' units with worktop, PC with broadband connection, Black Sheep on draught and my bikes in it, almost forgot a nice comfy chair (probably leather and coming apart at the seams a bit - in the style of Bagpuss),. The ability to leave tools out, and lube chains without getting complained about. Radio 4 radio reception (a rarity in these parts). Space to leave climbing gear out too, without it disappearing into the 'dressing up' box.

Maybe a few more Pace frames along the way would be nice: an RC100, an RC303 and the fabled RC400 (even though the last two aren't pukka paces). Maybe a few more Park tools, an a fine selection of lubes and polishes, call it a bike parfumery if you will. The air will have the heady scent of GT85 and that lovely smell of wood burning stoves. Apart from the sound of the Archers in the background the rest will be .....................................................................

Bliss!

One day......

....and it needs shelves.Lots of shelves to put all my climbing guide books on. And all my mountaineering tomes. Better buy some Marco Pantani books then (so there isn't a disturbance in the force).

Suppose I should move the single malt in too.


Not that I've ever given it any thought what so ever :oops:
