This afternoon we cleaned out our carport shed and rearranged to make room for the longtails to come.
A quick note on our setup: we bought the house in July. Its a '50s era ranch of about 950 sq ft. There is a small shed in the backyard that was built as a playhouse and really isn't big enough to swing a cat around by the tail inside. I've not tried. I don't really like cats so we don't have one available to use as a test pilot. Might have to try one of the crazed squirrels soon.
Anyway, the carport shed is basically a shallow closet on one side of the carport with a wider section at the end opposite the street. I've had trouble storing the OBS in it. I actually have to take the front wheel off and turn the handlebars sideways to get it to fit at all.
I had considered building a bike garage at one end, but my appropriations committee doesn't really like that idea, so we're going to work with what we've got.
The skis and some other random junk ended up in the playhouse shed and the carport shed is all cleaned out with a wall between the wider and narrower sections removed so at least one bike can just roll in and out without having to be hung up. I'm stoked because that will make life easy with the longer bikes.
I also want to put up a bike rack somewhere outside so we can just lock them up good when we're going to be around but may need the bikes on short notice...say for example: APOCALYPSE!
We're short on storage and there's not much room inside for stowing bikes, but we'll do okay. The problem is going to be when the kids need full sized bikes. I think we may need a proper shed in the future.
Okay, now back to Xtracycle porn.
