Bike Shop & #Bikeschool Monday

So a friend of mine made a bike rack for me out of PVC pipe and then I got all motivated and schtuff this afternoon and decided to re-do my whole *bike shop*. As you can see from the before picture……
I’ve been just leaning my bikes up against each other – not the best thing and it’s also quite inconvenient. I really didn’t want to pay the kind of money that regular bike racks cost, but I still wanted something sturdy enough to hold several bikes. The best part about this rack is that you can take it apart and expand it to add room, you know, in case there are more additions to the *family* 😉
I also sorta-kinda found this sorta-just layin’ around and thought it would be a great way to get my cog sets off the ground and organized for easy access 😀
I’ve also hung two of my old frames up that I could never bring myself to part with after I’ve wrecked on them 🙁
Add a one-of-a-kind-limited-addition poster from the Savage Sprints
And you got yo-self a brand new organized *bike shop*!!
As some of you know, I also like to clean my bikes….a lot. I think that if you take care of them, specifically the drive-train, everything lasts A LOT longer. I also happen to do this on Mondays….
First: Tool Box with Mistress H Chain Whip 😉

Add a little degreaser….
Some splish splash and sunshine
And you got yourself some clean bike parts!

So… onto my #Bikeschool project. I decided I’d better *pedal the pedal* if I was going to challenge the students!! So I got my CX bike ready….

Got me a strap to put around my pants so I could commute easier and placed it in a *no-excuses-spot*

So now to GET OUT AND RIDE!!

    Holy crap! The bike shop looks 1000 times better? Are you sure someone from the TLC network didn't come over and do it for you?
