    The same GT Outpost Mountain bike I've been riding since 1996. I also have a collection of cruisers, folders, and some antiques.

    Very cool. I wonder if there's any problem with the clamp "missing" and damaging the front wheel.

    That is pretty cool, but with my luck the day that parking machine fails to retrieve my bike would be the day I need to leave in a hurry because it's about to start storming or something. Even so, cool idea.

    That's amazing. I wonder how much it costs to build and to have a "membership." I would love that type of bike storage.
