Cyclehoop launch Bikeshelf indoor bicycle rack
Simple and minimalist indoor bicycle rack from the company that brought us the Cyclehoop and Bicycle Bollard
Cyclehoop, a design and architecture firm that is responsible for an invention that turns any road sign or bollard into a bike stand, and has been rolled out this year by the London Borough of Islington, have just launched their latest product, the Bikeshelf.
It’s a minimalist indoor bike rack and is designed to hold your bicycle off the floor as well as providing a shelf for your cycling gear, such as helmets, locks and other accessories. It’s clearly been aimed at cyclists living in flats or houses where space to store a bicycle is at a premium.
The rack is laser cut and folded from a single sheet of 5mm thick steel and will support the down tube of the bicycle in the front section of the rack with a soft rubber lining to prevent scratching. There is a locking hole so you can secure your bike with a D-lock.
Realising that for many space is limited, the rack can also provide some space to store a helmet, gloves, tools and other accessories, with two shelf areas.
Cyclehoop say the rack is compatible with a maximum top tube diameter of 5cm and handlebars no wider than 60cm. They specify a max weight limit of 20kg.
This is the company’s first venture into indoor cycle storage. Anthony Lau, Managing Director says: “With more and more people taking up cycling, the challenge now is to find a good solution for indoor bike storage. Applying our experience in bicycle parking design, we wanted to create a simple and practical bike rack that had multiple functions.”
It’s available in three colours (white, grey or orange) and costs £99 including VAT. Check it out at www.cyclehoop.com
