Stylish Bike Storage – Direct from the U.K.

40581.BFB2FCA0+1A client was looking for a method to store his bike off the floor in his condo, but not on a ‘typical’ rack. So while cruising the Unica Home web site, I found the the Cycloc Cycle Storage, described as “an amazing, brilliantly simple design and winner of numerous awards including the Time Magazine Consumer 2006 Product Design of the Year.” Design awards include:

  • 2006 winner of Consumer Product Design of the Year awarded by the plastics industry
  • Design and Art Direction Award, U.K.
  • Design Award Week, U.K.– Most Outstanding Product Design

40581.220608DB+1I like the unique shape, which guides the bike frame securely in place and can accommodate a wide range of frame shapes. My only concern is varying bike frame thicknesses. The Cycloc provides additional functionality in the form of storage for your biking accessories, although no photos demonstrate this purpose. I can imagine you tucking your riding gloves in the middle of the Cycloc. The Cycloc ships complete with mounting instructions, but you’ll need to buy fasteners based on your wall type and bike weight. Once hung, you can even lock your bike up in a public space by inserting a special lock.

40581.537324FA+1For $135, you can select from green, white, orange, and black. The green, white, and orange are made of new MDPE plastic, while the black Cycloc is made of 100% recycled MDPE plastic. Shouldn’t that be the “green” model? Anyhow, it’s about 11″ in diameter.

Happy riding!
