Awesome and gorgeous bike shelf for apartment and condo dwellers!
Chris Brigham, and his Knife & Saw design studio, saw a need for a bike shelf that was not all industrial. He wanted to make something for the interior home, something that instead of screaming “bike rack”, said elegant shelf that doubles as a place to hang your precious two-wheel vehicle. “Bikes always get in the way – either in the hall, or leaning up against a bookshelf or something. So, I decided to design something to fix that problem,” Brigham recounts on his blog/website of his inspiration.
Created using solid Walnut or Ash wood, the Bike Shelf by the former graphic designer is suspended by a steel square rod mount. By incorporating the sturdiness of steel into its design, the shelf can do more than hold a bike - hence its appeal to those who are perhaps more interested in its interior design qualities instead of showing off their carbon fiber super light steed. But for whatever reason you find a finished wooden shelf useful in your personal space, the standard 1.75” slot will fit most frames. Under the top bar, the clearance necessary to fit the shelf is 17” , with a 1.5” space between. Brigham will also discuss custom fit options to make sure it’s the perfect solution for you and whatever size works for you.
Acting as a green friendly way to create space by using solid wood that will sustain itself over time, the Bike Shelf is a fantastic way to shape up your interior space by taking control of the vertical horizon.
