As a new bike owner, I’ve become hyper-aware of everyone’s ride. So it’s no wonder that, when browsing through the sneak peek archives, I was immediately drawn to all the prominently displayed bikes. If you live in an apartment, you may be forced to figure out a creative way to incorporate your bike into the design scheme, but with such pretty bikes, who needs a garage? Here are examples of bikes in nearly every room in the house — kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms! — Amy A.
