my missus is always telling me to clean up the shed, but my bikes always seem to take up valuable space.
so today i thought about keeping my bikes above ground level.
i have a handy loft bit, so i decided to hang them from the edge.
i have some bungee cord which will make the job a bit better in the future.
so far the wife is impressed.

The Orange looks vulnerable from the window, UV will fade paint & tyres in the long term.
But if her-indoors is happy..................

I have just put about 6 frames in my loft. Doused them in
grease and hung on hooks. Much dryer than the shed over winter.

OK... wasn't going to, didn't want to, but I can't help it - what's in all those foil packets?

Are you Pablo Escobar and can I claim my £5 (million)?

Good question, its just harmless wheat.
We use it in our diet, & make our own bread.
