I did indeed, and if you lived next door you'd be welcome to borrow any of them at any time. :wink:

Ductape: Sounds like a plan. :mrgreen:

"Giving" bikes to family members to reduce the herd doesn't count. I tried that with my Stumpjumper. Told my wife that I didn't have 10 bikes, only 9, because the Stumpjumper was for her.

The doctors say the 10mm spanner in my eye hasn't caused any lasting damage, but it might bleed a bit when they pull it out.

It only worked on this one occasion as my daughter lives in a different town, hence the bike is no longer in my garage. :mrgreen:

If you are careful, I bet you can redo the hooks in the shed so the bikes hang closer together. Wala. Problem solved. Of course it will take much more fondling to get one down to ride, but is that such a bad thing.


I've just managed to find room for another bike in my shed. That's now 5, in a shed designed for 2...

On the plus side, I juts sold my modern Santa Cruz, so that's no bikes in my bedroom (at the moment)

I'm in culling mode. Giving the RM Hammer to the ex, will probably give the Fire Mountain to her mother while she's in town to visit her, selling the RM Stratos to a neighbour, GT Karakoram is going on the block, and I'll probably move at least one more.



Leaving only 30 bikes, how will you cope?!
