New to the forum, so Hi to all.

I have a new 450D with the standard 18-55 IS lens. The photo you see is what I took today in not the best of conditions but thats not what I want to discus.

I take alot of photos of bikes indoors and out but would like more detail. I am thinking wide angle but not informed enough to make a decision on what type.

If I take a shot of my bike that fills the frame it looks too far away to show good detail. I'am not looking for studio type results but better then what I'am doing now.

The #1 image you posted doesn't look very sharp. Start with a large (small #) f-stop to throw the background more OOF (Out of focus) & then sharpen the image after you've resized it.

If I take a shot of my bike that fills the frame it looks too far away to show good detail.

Your lens will do close-ups, too. Take two shots of it?

I'am not looking for studio type results but better then what I'am doing now.

Start with the light you should be using. See my Sig, and...
