    Ive built quite a few around Austin. Mancaves, work shops, mini bars and and a few tiny houses. Some with sliding barn doors, electrical, plumbing, ac, stainless work benches, etc. Quite fun. Codes can get tricky in different parts of town with HOA so you gotta have your shit together. Theres always a cranky neighbor.

    I have seen many bike shops with a worse selection of bikes in the ENTIRE store. Well played sir. If you just use that rail to hold the back tire then you could justify the purchase of at least 3 or 4 more.

    You could build out a little loft behind the railing over the stairwell, basically just behind and above the bikes in the railing pic. Match the height of the rail and roll em in.

    I've found that a nice aquarium adds incredible ambiance to any bike shack/man cave.

    How is the Kona hanging on the wall? I see something under the tires and something under the pedal.

    Hah, thanks man. Hopefully the sentinel is going home to its proper owner this weekend so theyll all be off the floor now.

    Thats a pretty good idea. We've had to get creative since going from a 4/2/2 to a 2/2/1

    This room looks like you put it together when your wife was out of town and she told you the bikes better be out of sight
    before she returns

    Might I recommend a 120g aquarium for storing your snakes?

    What's up with that skinny-tired bike on the far left with the curvy handlebars?

    Came back to this tread for some garage remodeling inspiration. Is there any issue with hanging a bike with hydro brakes vertical on a wall?
    Currently 3.0". With hard work and dedication I hope to see 2.8" maybe even 2.6"

    I've heard that suspending mountain bikes upside down is not advised, although I'm not sure if that's based on facts or just opinions. Something about it not being good for the seals on the suspension components... Haven't really heard anything about it being bad for hydro brakes.

    Just realized I didn't really answer your question... Not sure about hanging bike vertically. That's how we stored bikes that were in for service in my old shop, but that was typically only for a few days at a time. Unless you've got a fault seal, I can't imagine it would be a problem.

    My bikes are upside down so I can back my truck under them. They don't get used a lot, so there's not really a lot of trail wear to worry about with them. I'll try to report in over time of any updates about any affect the hanging may have on them.
