- Pointless bike storage of the month award.
Would have been better with wheel hooks to hang the bikes from so they would be covered by the shelter. Perhaps a lack of knowledge by the fitter rather than mean spiritedness. (And if they had done that ot would have taken up less footprint giving more storage space for other things too)Posted 6 months agoretro83Member

Are you not intended to put the rear wheel in the lower one and the front wheel in the top one? Top one may be too high up for a kids bike. At least the rain thing would do something then.
Looks like it but I doubt kids would be strong enough to lift those BSOs up and lock them in safely.
I lived in a new build
rabbit hutchflat and the ‘secure bike lockup’ was a brick building which was partially open on the back to allow light in.
A brilliant design meaning that the thieves could climb in easily, completely obscured from the view of the flats, allowing them to work leisurely on breaking the locks in complete comfort, and simply undo the ‘secure door’ from the inside and ride away. As they did with my bike 😡Posted 6 months ago
A landowner who owns most of the rental flats in town is on a mission to convert every tiny space into rental accommodation. None of them have any parking or anywhere to store bins, pushchairs etc. It’s turning the whole area into a rubbish tip and it’s getting worse weekly.
In an uncharacteristic act of generosity he has splashed out literally pounds on this fabulous bike storage solution.
Can you beat this for mean spiritedness and lack of thought. I’d be impressed.Posted 6 months agojohndohMember
It’s too high for vertical storage, you’d have to single handed hold the bike off the ground then somehow loop a lock through the front wheel to stop it falling backwards.
As I said – they should have used wheel hooks. It might be shit but I suspect it is shit through lack of knowledge rather than spitefulness.Posted 6 months agoedlongMember
It’s shit but it’s something. I lived a few years ago in a fairly swanky “gated community” development where there was a shop, bar, gym, pool, 24 hour security and literally no secure bike parking / storage facilities whatsoever. My bike was chained to the railings outside. Until it was nicked, obviously.Posted 6 months agokimbersSubscriber
craigyboy sums up Foxs ludicrous posturing nicely
