My wife is happy with my messy catastrophe garage. If I'm collecting bikes, I'm not collecting other vices. I'm down to one or two of those...
Maybe three.
I wouldn't say Mrs Awesome is "happy" with the garage space and bike parts takeover, but it's cheaper and better than motorcycle racing, drugs, hanging out at the bar, gentlemen's lounges, etc......

Other vices are so bothersome. I do have a bit of a shoe collection issue though :39:

Despite my 8 or so bikes, I try to keep it in check. I aim to have one or two of each "genre" so at least my collection is versatile. If I don't ride something for a while or have duplicates I'll usually try to sell.

And of course, I'm always looking! I need to get back into a Stingray but man those have become very expensive and hard to find within the last year or so!

Not impacting Mrs Awesome's personal storage space, I hope?

I keep 2 of my bikes hung on our garage wall, along with my wife's. The other two are downstairs. But our garage is full of woodworking tools and supplies. I have a small shop in our basement, but all of the really messy stuff goes on out in the garage. Although I clean up and put everything away when I'm finished, my wife has commented more than once about the dust on her bicycle. I'm due for another deep clean out there. I think that will be today, as it's going to be unseasonably warm here.

In the process of tidying the outbuilding, my horde posed for a selfie.

“I can make room for it!”
Once or twice a year I go through all my stuff and get rid of anything I haven’t used since my last “purge”. That’s also when I get excited about unfinished projects. I make exceptions here and there, but I’m about due for a “gear purge” because my carport is starting to look like a hoard.
