While visiting many friends small apartments here in SF and more so in NY, I noticed that there is a void when it comes to elegant bike management. Bikes always get in the way – either in the hall, or leaning up against a bookshelf or something. So, I decided to design something to fix that problem. It’s called The Bike Shelf.
Made from solid wood (in this case, Walnut) and suspended by a steel square rod mount, this shelf can hold both your bike, as well as anything else you want on it quite easily. If you want to just showcase your bike, that’s fine, but if you want to utilize the space for books, flowers, bike accessories, etc., that’s what it’s there for.
I have designed this to hopefully fit most bike frames, but perhaps not all. The standard slot size is 1.75″ and the clearance needed underneath the topbar at 17″ apart is 1.5″. Please check to see if your bike will fit. If not, we can talk about customizing it for your frame. Custom designs might have an added fee based on how much I would have to change. The shelf attaches to the wall by sliding over (and locking into) a steel mount that is ideally screwed into two wall studs.
The prices are as follows:
