The ultimate backyard upgrade for the bike obsessed.
In Colorado, the average two-wheeled cache can grow out of control pretty fast. We have road, fat and mountain bikes, trailers and hitches for towing the kids and dogs, tuning equipment, locks, helmets and other swag.
Luckily, Denver-born Tuff Shed is taking riders out of the greasy, cluttered corner of the garage and into their very own well-designed sanctuary. Today’s customers not only need a bike collection stash spot, they’re seeking an ancillary backyard hangout space, says Tuff Shed director of marketing Phil Worth. “Twenty percent of our sales are some sort of unique use that’s intersecting with what the customers’ hobbies are,” Worth says.
Tuff’s most popular athlete-inspired spaces are pre-fab 10-by-12-foot structures with overhead storage that crafty bikers then outfit with bike mounts, workbenches and cubbies. The sheds can even be wired for power and Internet. A beer fridge for post-ride reminiscing? Well, that’s sold separately. Happy tuning and tinkering. Basic models begin around $4,000. 800-BUY-TUFF, tuffshed.com
