So, a strained back from trying to trampoline with 3 kids and particularly gruesome weather convinced me that I really just couldn’t be @rsed to ride on Sunday, sorry chaps.
However I had a plan and after many hours of doing the dutiful husband and father bit, I slipped into the garage to indulge in my hobby in an indirect way.
I imagine those regular readers who are prone to a bit of nudge-nudge-wink-wink innuendo (Lee?) who read that intro were thinking all manner of things, however there were no ‘workshop manuals’ involved, just me and some wood, nails, screws and a few tools.
A couple of hours later and I have finally produced the solution to my tool storage problems that have plagued me for months.
We have a couple of carpenter/joinerers in our group who needn’t worry about competition from me in future, however I’m really pleased with the result.
Rather than including every tool in my garage, these are just the regular ones required for bike fettling and I find it quite surprising that just this selection is really all I ever need to keep the mtb’s on the trail and swap components from one frame to the other, as seems to be my want lately.
So no more tools strewn over the garage floor, there really is no excuse. Its also quite a good way of stopping me buying any more tools as I’ve not left much space for anything else.
