Killer Bike Room at Bagley Lofts

By November 28, 2010

Did everyone have a good Thanksgiving? We headed up to Whistler and had a blast. There was plenty of new snow everyday and bottomless powder on Seventh Heaven which wasn’t open yet unless you were up for a thirty minute hike. We also stuffed our faces with turkey thanks to Chelsea.

In the summer when I can’t ski, I bike. As a big cyclist and mountain biker I have four bikes. Chelsea has one. This makes things a little cramped in our loft at Trace Lofts. To free up some floor space we’ve installed two ceiling mounted bike lifts. Here’s one of em:

They work pretty well but I’d prefer to have the bikes out of the unit. Unfortunately our garage bike storage area is full, and I always worry about locking up fancy bikes in a semi-public space like a garage (even if it is a secure garage).

The other issue with owning so many bikes is maintenance. I’ve done some maintenance before on the dining room table but I get dirty looks when I do this.

What I’d love is to have a secure bike room with a bike stand. Something just like this bike room I spotted in the photos of unit 111 at Bagley Lofts (nice work on behalf of the listing agent, Bradley Howell, including a photo of the bike room):

The other “nice-to have” for cyclists & bikers would be access to a hose or a place to wash your bike off for when you get home super muddy from Tiger Mountain.
