My workshop is a mess

If someone tells you that you have enough bicycles and you don't need any more. Stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity un your life.

Right now …

My workshop is a mess. Some days ago I was cleaning it up. „My workshop“ is a big exaggeration. There was a time when below those bike parts, cleaning equipment, clothes and tools was a sofa. Yes I mean that piece of furniture where normaly at least two people can sit on.
When I started to work on my bike myself I didn’t like the idea to stand for hours  in the cold and lonely basement so I kept all the parts in the flat. But the parts and tools became more and more until the sofa was no longer free to sit on.

Now I structured all the things laying on top of it. Old bike parts will be sold. Parts I will maybe use again are stored below the sofa together with all the tools which fit nicely in a surprisingly small cardboard box. There are two boxes still on the sofa. In one I store all the fluids, oils, greases and lubricants. The other contains tubeless sealant and some parts to apply it.

But in the future …

This is not optimal but I now I’m able to sit again in the office/workshop below my montainbike and do things or sleep. In case of the latter I dream of kind of a garage beneath the house I live in where I don’t park my car (because I won’t own one) but instead store my bikes and have a workshop with all the tools nicely ordered at the wall. There’s a big workbench like table with drawers for parts and other materials. The heart of the workshop is a very robust workstand where I can put my bikes on.

I wonder if the day will come I won’t wake up and realise it was just a dream.
