Stephen,

A fun idea. I am really looking forward to setting up a basement shop soon as we have just bought a house - right now we are in a two-bedroom, downtown, high-rise apartment. As you can imagine it is an interesting challenge - I have two bikes on the balcony (both MTBs), my Bob Jackson in the living room, my Raleigh in the hall-way, the PX10E in pieces in one corner of my home-office along with the Jack Taylor and Falcon frames and forks, spare wheel-sets, my work-stand, tool-box, parts boxes, tyres, trainer, etc. etc.
