should i or shouldnt i?!! A new shed!!..

Post by ladyloocy »

Hi all

I’m looking for some feedback from any of you about storing your bikes outdoors.

I’ve been recommended it by my mates that it’s one of the best in the market, they cost more then a wooden shed but it’s a lot more secure and theres plenty of room for all my other bits and pieces.

Has anyone else got one of these, and could you let me know what you think before I order it! :thinking:

Cheers

Lucy

This may be a silly question but why did you copy that post onto ForumGarden? I'd love to finally have my curiosity satisfied. Come on back and try to explain how you benefit.

Hi!

I've just got myself a new bike to commute to work in, but im finding it a bit of a hassle getting it out from my house in the morning... some friends of mine have all got proper bike sheds in their garden, but they can be quite expensive..what do you guys think?

cheers!

But that exact post is on other forums beside this one. You can't be Daniel on one and Lucy here and Samantha on a third, you lose credibility that way.

Why not just come out and say you're being paid to sell sheds?

This is from the Ethics Code Statement of the Word of Mouth Marketing Association:We practice openness about the relationship between consumers, advocates, and marketers. We encourage word of mouth advocates to disclose their relationship with marketers in their communications with other consumers. We don't tell them specifically what to say, but we do instruct them to be open and honest about any relationship with a marketer and about any products or incentives that they may have received.

We stand against shill and undercover marketing, whereby people are paid to make recommendations without disclosing their relationship with the marketer.

http://www.womma.org/ethics/code/read/



Would you like to to disclose your marketing relationship? Honestly, discussing this would interest me. Buying a shed wouldn't.

All men like sheds, they're down the bottom of the garden and men go there to think (and hide I think). You know how well a man has done in life by the size of his shed. :wah:



I hope you get an answer to your questions although I somehow doubt it. :-3

I love my shed. I sit there for days untill I'm festooned in cobwebs. When the beer runs out I go back in doors and tell my wife of the places I've been and the adventures and scrapes I got myself in.

I think she knows though

Don't you think your selectively leaving off the first half of my statement - "that exact post is on other forums beside this one" - changes the meaning of the bit that's left?

Of course she can be Daniel on one and Lucy here and Samantha on a third but not when she's posted identical claims to excitement over a named brand of shed with all three accounts. When she does all of that she's a viral marketer, not a poster.

IDK as I keep my bike in my garage. Bike locks don't work as they can easily be cut off :thinking:

I love my shed also and can relate to the escapism one can find inside. My wife did object when my shed was fitted out with kitchen cupboards but only a man can understand these things. I need cupbaords, racks, drawers and hanging utensils for tools and fishing gear and i'm about to install new lighting for night use. The wife did have an idea of hanging curtains at the window, painting it pink and adding planted window boxes but i prefer the wood stain look along with the cobwebs. My shed is situated as close as possible to the house and padlocked to the hilt to deter anyone from taking a fancy to my fishing gear although my most prized gear is kept in the house where three dogs have been trained to kill should a stranger go within a foot of it. I did toy with the idea of wiring up electric fencing around my shed but was advised that i'd be breaking the law.

Men need sheds and i think we should campaign for more.
