    We currently have our exercise room and media room together in the basement. The Hoist weight system weighs about 800 lbs.

    This is most of our equipment. We rotate it around sometimes. This isn't close to the current layout. The only thing that stays put is the Hoist system.

    Guys, lovin' your hobbies !

    Tim, cool bike for sure !!

    Stu, nice die-cast collection !

    Rich, beautiful looking Jag ! I had to laugh though at your comment about the trigger pull on your rifle ..... 1.5 lbs, that's a ton my friend ! As a former bench rest shooter , my 6ppc ....... 2oz trigger and I can tell you at times in matches when reading the wind flags and daisy wheels that thing felt like 2 tons !

    As for cars, I doubt there's a bigger car geek than me on this board. Regardless my current baby, '67 BB ..........

    Ha ha. Well, Dave . . . It is basically just a 10/22, not an Anschutz Benchrest rifle. I shoot it standing and prone, as well as off a Benchrest. But yeah, I'm not competing with it. Just punching holes in paper.

    2 oz, wow! That's a light pull. I think the lowest the Kidd can be adjusted is 6 oz per stage, but 12 is fine for me.

    Oh, and that's a fine looking Vette. Love that vintage.

    My wife and I between us have 2 hard tails, 2 full suspension bikes, 2 road bikes, and I have a single speed road bike that I built from my old 1984 racing bicycle.
    However our matching Specialized Stumpjumper Experts are about 8 years old now. When we tested the pair we were amazed at how much easier they were on our backs! They aren't 29'ers, but they get the job done!

    Mark, absolutely running tubeless. Between losing the tubes and converting to Whiskey carbon fiber rims I dropped almost 3 pounds off the bike. I run about 8-9 pounds on dirt and drop down to 2-3 for riding snow. Yes, it rides well in snow, but it's much more of a workout depending on conditions, pack etc.

    How is it that you can photograph your photographic equipment, but you can't photograph your system? Utterly preposterous.

    My wife and I are very happy with our Keiser M3

    It is absolutely silent and you can't over power it. It also very easily switches between her 5'4" frame an my 6' frame.

    The pedals are SPD on one side and you can use regular shoes on the other side.

    I actually prefer the full body workout of my Concept 2 rowing machine. I purchased it in 1994 and I've upgraded it a bit over the years, but it is a very nice piece of equipment.

    Always focusing on the negative, Adam. If you look closely at the panorama picture of my gym, you will see it includes my secondary system with the Pass Labs amp and Ascents.

    Hey Tim. The Swinn Airdyne is good enough for me. I like that it gives me an upper body as well as lower body workout. It's great for cardio or for warming up before weightlifting. I used to have a nice spin bike that I bought for my wife, but I never used it. Just didn't enjoy it.

    I'm with Mark though . . . the Concept 2 rowers are the way to go. That's actually the next piece of equipment on my purchase list.

    The only downside to the Concept 2 is that it is louder so I only use it by myself. Ironically it is the least expensive piece I have. They sell directly and after all these years it is still a bargain.

    The noise isn't much of a problem since I like to workout in the early AM, I'm two floors away and my wife prefers the evening.

    The elliptical trainer is something my wife wanted. However she typically uses the spin bike.
