This new rack is a variation of the classic Sheffield/Rounded A stand. A chain replaces the horizontal security bar, making it particularly suitable for coastal towns and sites.
Students on the BA Interior Design course at the University of Portsmouth were asked by Portsmouth City Council to design bike stands to be used around the city.
This design is by Rebecca Weaver and has been commissioned for production by Portsmouth City Council.

The heavy duty chain allows the cyclist to lock the bike frame and wheels with their own chain or D-lock.
The Steal-Me-Knot provides many 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 and saddles can be stolen from them.
