Bike Storage
#1
Anyone else out there without a garage? If so where do you store your bike? Ive been struggling away with mine in the shed for ages and just panic everytime I go away for any period of time that it will get pinched, so much so that its lived in the lounge on and off and obviously causing some grief between me and SWMBO. I am planning on building a custom, double skinned shed at some point to provide some decent damproofing and security but wondered if anyone else had better methods...

Use the kitchen instead like I do lol although its just me so I can do what I want. Wooden sheds will never be that safe, get a few more locks on, if its mounted on concrete which I guess it will be, get one of those floor anchors and then the best chain/lock you can to go through that and the bike

There are other options of inside, these sort of things, under £100 I think and get the bike out of the way but you still need it to be clean to avoid mess

Or this cheaper home made solution

Mine lives inside the house in a large cudboard, dont even have to take the wheels off.

Dont think i could keep it in a shed anymore.

When i lived at my parents house it was in a brick shed with a ground anchor and new yorker kyprtonite ulock on that and then a seperate cable lock round a pipe. Also covered a sheet over it.

I still put the ulock through the rear wheel now, so just incase someone does break into the house they cant cycle it off.

We dont have a shed or garage at the moment although hopefully will have small extension soon.  Both our bikes live in the front room behind the door.  Its not great but we dont have anywhere else to put them so it does for now.

Think thats going to have to be my option when my new shed finally gets built.

defo get a floor anchor, even if you have a garage.....

Get a "panic Alarm" put it on the inside of the shed door. so if anyone opens the door they get 100 decibels in the ear  Tongue

Is it not just cheaper to insure your bike properly so you just get a new one if it's nicked ?
