I've used the trick of pretending that the bike components are ornaments and have them around the house. Who needs little china dogs and paintings by Jean Miro when you can have derailleurs, cassettes and brakes adorning your mantelpieces and frames adorning the walls. Far more attractive in my opinion
I wish my wife was like you, all i get is what's this bike thing doing in the house?
