When I bought a new bike I didn't dare park it in the garage. It has a rather simple lock! And this bike is steal-worthy. So I decided to park it in the not-yet-in-use-bedroom. Close to the front door, and a floor that didn't matter as I would change it. And that worked fine for many months! But then the time came to evacuate the room for the carpet fitters. Where to put it? I decided on the storage space. It seemed the reasonable option! You reach it through the kitchen. So you go through a room with a vinyl floor to a room with floor paint. That should be OK! And there is space. So I put the same rack up as the ones I have in the office. And now that's where it lives!
