No, I reckon you could argue that that's a safety feature. All those frames would probably act like a giant Davies lamp and prevent an explosion. Might be best to be on the safe side and get a couple more to add protection.

A mate buys and sells cars - loses about 10k a year (the fool).

Needs a big garage, drivespace, loads of insurance and gets fat into the bargain.

My hobby has rules so that buying and selling prices even out, never lose much these days. Bikes live in a shed and cost nowt to run. When I ride them I get fit and keep slim(ish).

What can she complain about really?

Where do you all keep you bikes to aswell as i see from some pic's with bikes in house. I would be shot if i did that.


Rocky Mountain (in bits) - Behind the bedroom door, complete with smelly NOS Porcs (yeah I got busted for those :oops: )

Pace - in the spare room :D

Cannondale - Out in the shed on the Turbo Trainer

Saracen - Behind my desk at work

Funk - Stashed at my Mums house currently

the secret? = spread them about

Parts? I have them stashed in multiple locations so the huge enormity of my 'stock' is never exposed to Mrs Neilll :lol: :lol:
