Make a Statement: bike rack built at the intersection of art and function

Our latest Kickstarter find, the Statement Bike Rack, seeks to make bike racks that won’t make your apartment look like a garage and are worthy of that ultimate piece of art and function: your bike.  Handmade of birch wood and anodized aluminum, the statement bike rack folds up when not in use (as you see pictured here), can accommodate a cable lock, holds up to 60 lbs, and is made in the U.S. A.  The bottom even makes a nice place to hang your hat.

$190 for that… I guess thats why they’re calling it “art.”

It’s very nice. I agree, price tag should go a little bit lower than $190. I can’t buy it but good luck to you guys.
Also try to sell it in a variety of different colors.

For 190 bones I expect it to fold up slowly and gracefully when you lift the bike off.

looks like a shoe print on the wall…and an ID school project…nice though

Not a very elegant solution. Over designed. I thought the Bike Valet (another kickstarter wall rack) was a much better and beautiful option.

I think it looks really nice, but with a sloping top tube on a lot of my bikes I often find that they hang kind of wonky on a rack like this. Maybe the gel cradle can be shimmed in that case? $190 is totally worth is once you go back and admire the mustache and comb-work on that guy in the video again… See?

Hipster-bikes don’t have sloping top-tubes.

Cool design, just ordered one!
