They're at home depot for about $330.

Internally they've got 3'10" of height. It should be enough to hold my D675 (43.7") and maybe a wheel chock. Anyone ever try this or something like it?

It won't work for me. It's about a foot too short my bike is 79.1" while this only holds 70" inside. Maybe for one of you guys with a 250.

What about a regular storage shed that you can put in your backyard? They have them at Lowes and Home Depot for $250 and their special includes the floor. Just an idea.

I've thought about them. They just seem so big for the city. I don't want something so high that people would use it as a ladder to get on my deck. There are some shady people meandering my neighborhood!

You could always build one that is just big enough for what you will need it for....

I have one of those in my backyard. I don't think it would be tall enough for a bike.

I could build one... but I'm lazy and a prefab kind of guy. Perhaps I'll break down and get one of those cycle shells. I'd prefer a hard cover though.

a guy near me built a motorcycle shed and put it in his front yard right at the curb. Looks kinda funny. I should take a picture of it.
