Anybody lucky enough to have a cool artistic bike rack to lock up to?



Well, just hitch up your steed, and share with us...

David Byrne (of the Talking Heads) designs artistic bike racks in NYC. Here's his page.

Here is an image I found online of the racks we have here in Honolulu I don't know how unique they are but I think they're pretty neat.

Well, bike locks seem to work after all! That bike has 3 locks and nobody has stolen it!

Somewhere among my vacation photos from two years ago I have a photo of a Fort Worth bike rack that's a circled star, like a sheriff's badge. Long Beach (CA) is getting pretty creative with theirs, but I haven't been photographing them. Maybe I should start.

I have been traveling around a little and do notice some fairly unique bike racks.

From Eau Gallie, FL. Very similar bike rack to one of the above post, only with a bad pink job that makes the handlebar part looks like the female reproductive system! Hey, a registered nurse friend of mine agrees with me...


Another one from the same town:


From Toronto, this is the standard bike rack of there. Not too artistic but it is the most functional kind of rack that I know.


Here are couple that are outside the Royal Ontario Museum in Toronto:

I'm lucky to find a bike rack anywhere I go. My town isn't exactly bike friendly.

That can't be a bike rack in Honolulu... bike racks in Honolulu looked like...

Nashvillwill, saw on the local news that we will be getting more 'artistic' bike racks in the future here in Nashville.

The Arts Council is asking for designs of racks for 30 different locations around town.

Friends from Nebraska really enjoyed the 'Corn' racks at the market.

Here are a couple that were put in Eugene last summer created by the local community college. I think there are supposed to be 1 or 2 more artistic racks going in this year.

The Deer are infront of a small shop, across from the bus station and library down town.






The Giant Wheel and Direction sighs are right in front of a little restaurant right next to the Amtrak station.

It's a squid by Seattle Center. I hear they're going to move it over toward the aquarium later.
