    Picture of compact bike rack?

    Hello

    Google didn't help finding a picture of a type of public bike rack that I saw in Holland, where every other bike is raised a bit so that the handlebars don't clash and so, more bikes can be parked in the same amount of space.

    Here's what happens when all the bikes are parked at the same height:

    Here's what happens when every other bike is parked just slightly higher so that the handlebars aren't at the same height:

    Do you know where I could find a picture of that kind of public parking rack so that I could show it to someone and make myself understood?

    Thank you.

    The 2nd picture is of bikes parked in a Sheffield style rack, nose-to-tail. In N2T mode, the bars dont clash and every bike can be parked with the dirty transmission to the inside. N2T is just a user-convention but very few people realise the advantages or stick to it.

    How can we get people to park nose to tail.

    just saying; once you put full rear mudguards on ,
    they dont cram in to vertical slot racks as easily as fronts do..
    without messing them up..

    Exactly. Thanks for the pictures. What would be the right words in English to describe them?

    I used the search term "staggered height bicycle rack" to find the pictures.

    https://www.google.com/search?q=staggered+height+bicycle+rack&tbm=isch

    English is not my mother tongue, so there might be some common name for it that I'm not aware of.
    Maybe the natives will chime in.

    Thanks much. I didn't know which keywords to search for.
