Looks like the release rope. I've got mine routed to the door (with a key release) so I can get in when the power is out, but he's got other ways in.

Are you talking about the power cord or the trolley release?

As soon as I get a 10ft ladder I will put a 6 ft extension and wrap the cord properly.. Will that help you sleep now?

my little parking space

This is mine. Small and still room for the minivan. It is a real pain in the ass to turn the bike around. I feel like Austin Powers every time I come home.



Boy, this makes it look even worse than it is

You don't just spin it on its side stand to turn it around?

You're doing a lot with a small space - looks nice.

But park the minivan outside, fer chrissakes.

Nice little space you have there. Just leave the minivan outside and replace those water bottles on the work bench with beer cans and it will all be even better.

I used one similar to this for the GSA in a MUCH smaller garage when we lived in Europe.

I was looking at this type of thing online yesterday. It is a good idea. First I'm going to try moving the shelves towards the door, i'll have a little more space to turn .

I tried using the whole garage for the bike when I first got it but a heavy rain and bringing in groceries resulted in a mad wife . I don't want her to run over the bike.

garagejournal.com has multiple threads debating the virtues of epoxy vs. ceramic or porcelain tiles vs. plastic tiles.

The slatboard is on two walls. It took 11 panels, 4'x8' 3/4" thick, $500. It's great, I can hang stuff anywhere.
Nicely done my friend. I like the wall panels.
