Cycling in Melbourne Australia
Damn... and i was SURE it was gonna be made out of power balance bracelets.
A 'bike tree'. I like!
I've just been through this process too - almost all the rack seemed practical but ugly.
I ended up getting a cycloc and just installed it last week - I'll try to remember to put up a photo when I get home.
Its a really well designed nice looking indoor rack that made my bike look like a piece of art on the wall.
They are available in a few places around Australia and online.
Search for cycloc on google.
I know what you mean about the 'looks' of most bike racks. The one that I've designed has been specified to pass the 'partner's asthetics' test.
In other words, if you're partner saw one in thier living room without knowing it's purpose, would they reply "that's a lovely piece of sculpture" or "get that ugly piece of #@*% out of my house"?
There's a few other advantages it has over the cycloc as well.
1. It doesn't require you putting fixings into the said partners wall
2. It can hang up to four bikes on the same bike carrier
3. It hangs them verticaly, rather than horizontally, leaving more precious wall space for other things... such as said partners antique desk or what ever.
4. It promotes domestic harmony and encourages a cycle centred lifestyle.
check them out on ebay under bicycle accessories and home storage solutions.
Wish I'd heard about it before the cycloc - I'm very happy with it though so far.
I couldnt find the link on ebay - can you be a bit more specific?
