    that is pretty cool. Looks like it might be less intense on the wall than the traditional hook hanging system because there are three points of contact and the weight of the bike is distributed more evenly?

    Holy loose chain batman!!!

    ...and I only see two points of contact, but that should be plenty. You could build one of these out of wood in the style of a traditional forklift-style wall rack if you wanted to, but I personally think a traditional wall rack is probably less trouble. A neat idea though.

    Since the bike is suspended pretty far from its center of gravity, it is sorta torquing down on that bucket thing. Plus it's pretty far from the wall, so it'll want to try and flip down as well. I can't think of any system that would put more stress on the bolts that hold it in the wall.

    It looks stylish, but marketing it as a space saver... a blatant lie. Realistically, you will not hang it high up in this way, will you? Maybe above your other bike (if applicable...) So the bike will be right by the wall where it would ba anyway, only a few inches further into your room. If you want to save space, hang it on the ceiling by the front wheel

    Good observation. In fact, the whole system RELIES on supporting the bike forward of it's center of gravity. Looks cool, but is totally unnecessary.

    actually, i think the whole dealie would be helpful with sloping toptubes, no?

    i didn't figure that out myself, i went to the website.

    i practice vagabondery.

    It's cool. But I'd suggest hanging a sign "this is not a urinal" for house parties.

    I'm not really sure how. Unless you hung it with the top tube horizontal, regardless of bicycle, the bike would slide through until either the seat-tube (pursuit frames) or headtube (compact frames) rested against the bracket. This could be counteracted by having a rubberized coating on the arms, but I don't see any. Any bike would be applying torque to this thing. A 50 lb weight limit is evidence of this.

    It is good practice to trim the ends of the handlebars to suit the width of your shoulders. This simple modification will make your bike more comfortable and allow you to negotiate traffic more easily. Docking your bike in the Cycloc will also be easier - so there are advantages all round.
    Hey um, you should trim your bars. They might be too wide. And it will help it store more nicely.
