Better there than on the streets.
My bride's bike in San Diego was stolen and that looks just like it!!
We live in 2 cities[ where bike theft is epidemic.
Do you wash your bike before you bring inside? If so, why not leave it outside?Or is this a brand new bike?

Your living room, Professor? Sorry, but I don't care much for the fireplace mantle treatment.
"Sorry, but I don't care much for the fireplace mantle treatment."Ha ha. I painted it like that about 25 years ago. It's easy enough to repaint, but it's just an old flight of fancy, fossilized.
Ali got into boxing when his $60 Schwin bike was stolen as a kid. Clay wanted to find and beat up the thief. A Louisville policeman ran a boxing club and taught him.
I saw my first Muslim woman in chador and niqab in Albuquerque at the supermarket this morning.It is going to be 95 -105 in the shade for the next three months. Why do they put up with this?
The color combination around the fireplace is very reminicent of colors I have used in various places in my house.For that place I would have probably chosen more earth tones--to go with brick and fire.
Chicago baseball fans have got to be happy with the Cubbies this season. Even my long-suffering Mariners are doing well.
My bike is in the living room in winter when some non-frozen finger operation is needed to repair it.
"Chicago baseball fans have got to be happy with the Cubbies this season."It's June 4th.
I hate headlines with "Scholars say ..." or "Scientists say ..."
Several F1 drivers have had their winning car mounted on their living room wall.
I tried to get my brother's 650cc Triumph TR6 on the elevator, up to our 5th floor apartment while at college (PSU). I was afraid it would get stolen. The apartment manager took a dim view of my escapade as I trying to squeeze it in the elevator. Had to buy a chain, an HD lock and attach to a pillar outside.
About this Gina McCarthy speech: Is it even possible for a Federal agency to sue the President for maladministration?Or Congress for interference with the execution of its duties?
Nicer if bike would have a hub transmission!
Before there were bicycles, there were tricycles which adults rode, see "Victorian women's tricycles", Google images
A friend of mine, a cardiologist, used to ride his bike to the office and keep it in his own office. I don;t know how sweaty he got in summer.Another friend, this one an internist, used to run to his office and had a shower in it. He did that every day. Of course, it was California. No snow.
I don't know, the last time I posted in a cafe Althouse freaked my shit out.Front page! Full quotes! Three curse words and riot comedy! Plus I insulted Adam Liptak of the Times! I probably should have thanked her, I guess. She just threw me out there! Up there. Whatever.
"The color combination around the fireplace is very reminicent of colors I have used in various places in my house."I had those colors in various rooms on this main floor. The lilac color is still there in the sunroom that's visible through the French doors.
I think I have set the Althouse blog record for self-deletions. Politicians would love a delete button, right? "Hey, can we delete that? Awesome."Imagine if you could go through life and delete the shit you said five minutes ago. I don't know about you, but I think I'd be richer. Also, there would be more sex.
@Saint CroixI assume people like to be front-paged, but I can see how it might be unpleasant or unsettling.
With white brick in an older home that fireplace would be pretty cool, so long as the rest of the decor wasn't twee.
My current bike was bought from a pregnant lady who'd belatedly realized that performance cycling was not compatible with 1.5 (approx.) tiny kids. Having acquired it thus keeps a damper on my machismo while riding, always good when descending a mountain road.
I was recently surprised to learn that Scott Adams is apparently only vaguely aware of his references here. Perhaps Althouse is not the political news powerhouse we've been led to believe. Can I apply for a refund?
That much soot blackening is abnormal. Have you had your chimney and damper checked lately?
That paint job looks like it should be in an SF Painted Lady. I like it.
A bicycle? You need a smaller house. Or much bigger doors, so you could get a proper car in there. But the smaller house would be more economical.
Check out bicycle designs rendered from people's sketches. For some reason I can't get the link right on my kindle - search on "gianluca gimini" or "velocipedia". I know what I want for my birthday.
I am enjoying The Corner these days. The tone is exactly like Al Gore hectoring us about global warming or the serio-comic writings of The National Lampoon in it's heyday.
Humperdink-"I tried to get my brother's 650cc Triumph TR6 on the elevator..."I think you are confusing Triumph sports cars with motorcycles. You might get a 650 cc. Triumph Bonneville on a passenger elevator, but never a TR6.
I like the fireplace paint treatment, very Mackenzie-Childs. It is a nice whimsical contrast to the starkly modern coffee table.

Have now seen two Hillary bumper stickers. The one I saw today said "Qualified." Judging from her slogans and her logo, she has to have the worst PR team in politics.
Humperdink-Appears there was a Triumph motorcycle model TR6 in addition to their sports car.My apology.
Laugh out loud movie of the week - if you understand Spanish"Las Brujas de Zugarramurdi"
Saint Croix is braggin, not complainindamn hillbillies nailed meI heard a rumor that if you get on the front page three times, Althouse sends you a hillbilly bobblehead.I am hoping to confirm this, maybe in 2019.
Ms. Althouse- what is the service you used for turning home movies from Super 8 to digital? I recall a long ago post. Thank you!
Classic Trek hard-tail. I have a Gary Fischer that looks exactly like it, maybe made at the same factory. Still runs and shifts true.

Triumph Bonneville on a passenger elevator, but never a TR6.You are in error sir. Triumph did in fact make a TR6 motorcycle. It was the single carb version of the 650cc. The Bonneville was the dual carb model.FYI: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triumph_TR6_Trophy
PS: It was also known as the TR6 Trophy.
I have a pink 1984 Celo Europa that is a working bike, but really is an art piece, so I display it as art in my living room.
Never had a bike in my living room, but I had a large metal ballot box from Palm Beach County /Bush v. Gore that came with pregnant chads, hanging chads, and the punch machine. I put a piece of glass on top and used it as an end table. Wonderful conversation piece!
Why is the bike in the living room?
Why is the bike in the living room?Jean-Luc Godard has a great scene in A Woman Is a Woman with the guy riding his bike in circles in the living room. It's called freedom, baby!I may or may not be able to find this clip on youtube. That link is to the trailer, you will notice that French trailers are way cooler than American trailers.
Althouse never writes like this"The clearest indication a game changer has arrived is when there is suddenly no way back to the way things were before. That moment has already arrived for the liberal project. No longer is it possible to pretend they are some noble company of players acting out an arc of justice on stage of history. Trump's barking and pitching unmistakably reveals they're just another freak show on the Midway and now the crowd knows it. The sight of the media unmasking itself or the sound of the San Jose attackers are just the tawdry effects."I blame gender difference.
@MikeinAppalacia Sorry, I failed to see you correction. My aplologies to you.
"Jean-Luc Godard has a great scene in A Woman Is a Woman with the guy riding his bike in circles in the living room."There's some good riding of a bike in the house in "The Fight Club."Anyway... the bike is in the house because Meade brought it around from the garage then needed to do something and just brought it inside for safekeeping.
"Althouse never writes like this... I blame gender difference."Ha ha. But ironically, that paragraph doesn't come across as masculine. It's very hyperventilating and dramatizing. He's so theatrical he even uses a theater metaphor and sustains it hammily.But who knows what that guy would write if he weren't caught up in the Breitbart project?
It's masculine. He abstracts from details to get a general state of things.The woman adds details and goes for actual drama.
How come you quoted the last paragraph except for the final sentence: "From here on to keep the job they've got to eat the chicken"?Is that a detail or the general state of things? There's no previous chicken, so I had to guess that he's referring to the aforementioned freak show and expects us to think about the geek that bites the head off a living chicken. But then why say "eat the chicken"? People tend to think of eating chicken as a normal and decently good thing. Or does the "the" do the trick?
"Sydney said...Have now seen two Hillary bumper stickers. The one I saw today said "Qualified." Judging from her slogans and her logo, she has to have the worst PR team in politics."I have a Hillary bumper sticker. Mine says "Never"
It wasn't a clear ending to me. No doubt it's the geek show chicken; is he saying that the left has to act like the clowns they are seen to be in order to continue?Rather than going with the social justice cover they've been using.It's still general nevertheless, just a metaphor.
I always say sand in the PC gearbox, which isn't a detail but a metaphor.
Here's someplace unexpected:Whittier, North Carolina.
