Thanks to my kids I've run out of space at the house. No more room to store the bikes inside so they'll be moving out to the shed. Anything to worry about storing the bikes in a shed with no heat or a/c?
I can't be certain, but this is what I know. I finished painting our iron gate and put the supplies away. Well, the box had a half full gallon of paint, same amount of primer, a can of graffiti remover, and a container of thinner. I SUSPECT my wife topped it off with a leaky container of chlorine bleach, which I SUSPECT rusted the bottom of the containers, which I SUSPECT caused the stuff to mix which I SUSPECT created caustic fumes. The shed reeked of fumes when I found out what had happened. All unpainted surfaces, including chromed parts were rusted. Some of the spokes actually rusted THROUGH. Only the seats, tires and the painted frames were salvageable. I fixed my sons bike.bad mechanic said:Details!!!
Yeah, I already thought of that. Going to be mindful with what we keep in there. Gonna have a gas can and mower in there....but not much else.bing! said:Well, I had one problem, never keep chemicals in the same shed. I had paint have a chemical reaction with some cleaning solution and ruined 4 bikes
