Mrs Claude would banish me from the house if I brought any of the bikes in! And the garage is big enough for them all (3) anyway.

I am very lucky to have a partner who is understanding and has equal number of bikes as I do (4 each). We both have too fucking many with drop bars though...

A bit of parity and understanding goes a long way. I have more bikes, but not by a large number.

If drops outnumber non-drops you are officially a roadie who sometimes mountain bikes.

Only one bike, and its in the garage. There really isnt a convenient place to put it inside, and I have a couple of 6 outlet power strips right next to it in the garage to charge up the lights plus nails in the garage wall to hang helmet and high vis shoes and shirts. Pretty ideal setup, and with white carpet wouldnt really make sense to take it inside

I will allow you to cite [spelling] that instance if you ride grade 4-and-above tracks on your 'cross bike. Provided you meet this requirement the 'cross bike shall be removed from the dropbar count, but not added to the proper-mountainbike count, adding no handlebars to the final tally.

I can't ride grade 4-and-above track on my mountain bike, so I shall have to acknowledge that I am in actual fact a 'Roadie'

We have two rooms in our house for bikes. The wife's bikes are in one room and mine are in another.

No bikes inside my house, this was not a democratically made decision and I was not consulted, the fact that all of the rooms are occupied with people who see the economic benefits of still living at home would make this problematic anyway.

Instead I have a nice room between the house proper and the garage with couch, stereo, storage cupboards, clothes rack etc for the bikes to live in, nicely stored on carpet in bike stands. Takes up valuable garage space, and means with the other 2 wheeled creatures and workshop space I can only get 2 cars into what should really be a 5 car garage. I get no sympathy on this point from a certain other member of the household, who even with such a limited amount of space available still insists on parking her car inside.
