A while back I got into cycling a bit, and I now have two bikes kicking around the garage. When it’s hot as hell (like now) or freezing, storing them is simple: I just installed a couple of hooks and hung ’em up and out of the way. But when it gets more temperate, I’d like to have easier access to them. Essentially, I don’t want to have to drag out a ladder in order to get them down. How do you deal with this at home?
I know it’d just be easy to sit ’em on the floor in the garage, but I really don’t like the idea of giving up that much floor and work space for something that only gets used once a week max. If I rode it to work every day, sure. But I don’t.
I dare say this is an ongoing battle for every Toolmonger: trying to keep the garage as a workshop instead of a glorified storage unit.
