The Bike Valet, a Butler For Your Bicycle
The Bike Valet by Reclamation Art + Furniture is a simple, minimalist wall mount for indoor bicycle storage. It supports one bicycle and features two hooks to serenade your helmet and gear. The Bike Valet looks to be in the same price range as the Cycloc wall mount, so it isn’t the cheapest on the market by far. But, if price isn’t an issue, this wall mount is endowed with maximal style and character. The Bike Valet looks more like a piece of Second Empire furniture than a wall mount. My only complaint is that there is no integrated coffee-cup holder, but I guess some things must be sacrificed for the art of minimalism.
On that note, the Bike Valet will come powder-coated in a variety of majestic colors: black, blue, cream white, grey, pale green, and red. They give a choice for the product to be equipped with either leather pad or neoprene pad to prop the bike on (keeping the Vegans in mind I assume). The Bike Valet is laser cut, hand bent, and made from 1/8” quality steel. On a side note, the mount extends 12″ from the wall, so it shouldn’t provide any issues with most handlebar widths apart from mountain bikes. More about this classy rack after the break.
Reclamation Art + Furniture is still in the process of getting this project off the ground, so the Bike Valet is on Kickstarter. They are halfway to their proposed goal and are offering a discount to all Kickstarter backers. All Kickstarter backers get the Bike Valet at $75.00 plus shipping ($12 continental US). If you want to see the Bike Valet in production, you can help the Bike Valet make its way to the shelves with a pledge at their Kickstarter page. Below is a nifty video of Steven Tiller from Reclamation Art + Furniture describing the Bike Valet.
