Why this product is so good

This functional and well-designed rack is the free-standing version of the BikeAway wall-hoop rack and parks the bike vertically. It is a space-efficient and cost-effective way of storing a bicycle.
The patented hoop design of the Free-Standing BikeAway allows the cycle to be securely held in an upright position whilst the ramp carefully lifts the mudguard off the ground, protecting it from damage.
A double rack stores two bikes back to back, off a central spine.

Issues & FAQ
Issues to consider

Security

The rack provides locking points for a bike.
However, the racks are only as good as the user’s lock. The bikes are visible to potential thieves and vandals, and they are open to the elements (unless under a shelter). Accessories, wheels, saddles etc can be stolen from them.
