Bicycle Display (and oh yeah storage too)

I designed and built this free standing bicycle storage column in my house.  Between us, Robin and I have six bikes (although one's for sale).  The mountain bikes are in the basement but the beautiful road machines are on display here in the corner of our living room.  The column is built to the specs of each 'steed' and spot lights project flattened 'images' of the front and rear wheels onto our living room walls.  It's quite spectacular.  I'm playing with the idea of having the wheels rotate slowly with a small motor attached to each wheel but am thinking that it may be too psychedelic...

  1. I like the lights. The shadows are very cool. Now how about some color!
