Gallery: Cyclehoop’s Car-Shaped Bike Racks Store 10 Bicycles in a Singl...

    The inclusion of a bike pump is a nice touch. The use of a car-shape seems like it would create a safe method of re-use. Drivers are attuned to car shapes and to avoid them. Seeing a car-shaped bike rack would stop someone not paying attention from trying to park on-top of the bikes.

    Using Cyclepods, 16 bikes can be stored in one car park spot!!Better organization, less crowding.
