Our bikes have a new home

Well, kind of.

About 2 weeks ago, I attempted (and failed) to re-organize our storage room to hold more stuff including the bikes on the bicycle rack. What I succeeded in doing was relocating the rack so that it was completely useless, putting it in a position to where no bikes would fit on it. Prior to this, I'd used it quite a bit for about 2 months without any problems.

Today, my wife told me to mount it on the wall in our office. There's ample room and little furniture in our office, which is basically just a computer lounge room. The patio is enclosed and we've never had a problem with our bikes getting wet or dirty out there. Whichever bike I am using for commuting at the time usually sits in front of the fireplace. The rest are on the patio. Now my mountain bike (which is currently out of commission since I stole its rear wheel for my Outlook) is the only one outside.

The rack itself is by Delta Bicycle Products. I found it on Craigslist being practically given away. It was still new in box when I got it. Look for a full product review later this week, or maybe even today.

Shown in the photo are my wife's Champagne Pearl Electra Townie 3S and my Metallic Black/Brushed Aluminum Trek 1200. The rack is also holding our helmets, gloves, and other accessories between the bikes.

Very neat and orderly and much more accessible than where I store my bikes. I hang 'em from the rafters and, unfortunately, that means quite a lift in the case of my wife's Giant hybrid.
