The forecast for London this weekend was blue skies and sunshine, my kind of cycling weather!
So I decided to get the good weather bike out of winter storage and give it a much needed dust down.
after a few minutes of buffing I stepped back to admire my work...
How can something this beautiful be kept in a cupboard!!!
This got me thinking. I remember a going to a design show a couple of years back seeing a pretty cool solution for storing and displaying your bike on the wall. So I had a little search to see what I could find.
This was it, its called the cycloc by design student Andrew Lang, and now its in production and available to buy for around £60. Its a pretty good idea, but its a bit cold and hard - not very homey, there is no way 'she' would allow such a thing. I then came across a similar solution called bike shelf which may be a bit more appealing.
This is called 'bikeshelf' and is available from Knife & Saw for around £200. obviously quite allot more expensive than the cycloc, but far more homey! And if there its going to be a decision between the 2, I know which one 'she' would choose. Overall though, i'm not totally sold on sports equipment as art. I think the bike will just have to spend the next few years in the cupboard until I can fund the construction of my Mancave!
