Gear Up's Two Bike Vertical Storage does exactly what it says and does it very well too at a reasonable asking price. You can use it in the house or, so long as you've installed a gamekeeper type wall-anchor for security purposes, it's also great for garages and similar brick outbuildings.
I'm currently a student at Aston University in Birmingham City Centre and a keen roadie and I MISS MY BIKE! The university do not allow students to keep bikes in their accommodation and I really do not fancy leaving my (rather pricey!) bike outside.
I would really appreciate any ideas or suggestions as to what I can do. For example, does anybody know about any cheap 'storage companies' etc?
£40 (or near as damn it) does at first glance seem a lot for a bicycle cover for that's what the Bike Parka is. After all, isn't a bike cover effectively just a sheet of polythene you pull over the bike when it's being left outside in the weather? Or, to put it another way, a protective barrier to shield your pride and joy from the ravages of the elements, the prying eyes of strangers and general all round grot? There, now £40 sounds a lot less scary doesn't it?
The Cycloc is a simple and ingenious cycle storage solution that's easy to fit and simple to use. It doesn't do enough to justify the fairly hefty price tag, but if you're displaying your bike as well as storing it, the Cycloc is elegant and practical.
We'll get on to testing the Cycloc in due course. Of course. But we think it could have many uses other than a clever bike storage thing. So far we've come up with:
-Futuristic hat with eye protector
-Swanky designer bin/plant pot for your penthouse apartment
-Hellboy cuff for the next fancy dress party
We're sure there must be more. anyone? www.cycloc.com
