As the weather slowly warms up, many of us are starting to ride our bikes more frequently. If you lack bike storage space you know that storing a bicycle in your living space can be less than ideal. All it takes is knocking the bike over once and you'll be cursing your lack of storage. Lucky for us, a Pittsburgh bike shop has come up with a bike stand that is both handsome and handy!
Even if your bike has a kickstand, it can be a precarious situation having a bike standing in your living room. The Pinch bike stand steadies your bike — and looks fabulous while doing it! Handmade from laminated bamboo in Pittsburgh, the two halves of the Pinch use the weight of the bicycle to lock the rear wheel into place. Simply lift the back wheel into the Pinch and the bike is securely held in place. To remove the bike from the stand, just lift the back wheel and go.
The Pinch is available in dark or light bamboo from ClankWorks.
