All my whips stay indoors. I race for a living and can't afford for some punk ass rich kid who thinks it will be funny to make off with 5g's worth of bike. Hell, I don't leave my $125 single speed commuter anywhere but indoors. These days you're just askin' to have your shit taken if it's not inside.

I keep mine inside. If you spend alot of money on a bike, you don't really want to risk it getting stolen. I will lick any part of my bike at any time.

Word, thats how I keep mine so that they aren't all in the way. They hang vertical.

Outside, off course...

With all the other bikes, it needs company and it shouldnt be locked up...

I guess thats another diffenrence between the states and here, in the states everybody keeps their bikes indoor, out here, nobody gives a fuck... Theres bikes everywhere...

Indoors, without question.

 

I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say "dude, somebody stole my bike off my porch".

 

All 15 of my bikes hang vertically indoors, except the tandem. My basement looks like a bike shop.

 

and yeah, I've been known to do a little racing. ;)

If a woman can't deal with my bike being inside, she can't be my woman. Anyway, in Austin Tx there's this thing they did... where they get all these donated bikes and paint them bright ass yellow.... They're left all around the downtown area, and you're free to ride them and take them where ever you want. It's pretty neat, and I think it worked out well. Of course there are some people that would probably steal the bikes, but they aren't even really worth stealing.

 

If you're into BMX at all, look on ebay for frames, I saw a Mutiny Enemy (I don't like that frame) for $50.... and it's a $300 something dollar frame brand new. And they weren't selling it cheap cause it was dented, scratched, or bent in any way. Yep, if you want a good bike, check ebay.

Guest KING OF HELL

leaving your bike outdoors is like asking for a slap in the nuts.

bring it inside. nurture it. comfort it. treat her like your best friend, and she will let you ride the hell out of her.
