U2 Bike Racks
Available from Cycle Safe Inc.
Materials, security, and aesthetics are critical factors in choosing a bicycle parking system. Coating of the metal bike racks varies widely, but Cycle-Safe uses a special process that will not damage or scratch a bicycle, plus it will not rust. All bike racks clearly leave the bicycle vulnerable to theft of components and vandalism, and lockers are the preferred choice for the long term, secure storage of more expensive bikes.
Also remember, bicycle racks complement lockers, they don't compete with them. Typical installations should have both.
Cycle-Safe's U/2™ "inverted U" type bike racks are the leading edge in technology for bike rack parking and offer the best of short-term cycle parking. The inverted U/2™ rack design for two bicycles is widely regarded as the recommended standard for modern bicycles. Cycle-Safe U/2™ bike racks are made of steel and completely covered with a heavy rubberized coating. This combination has proven to maximize corrosion resistance, impact resistance, and protection of bicycle finishes.
Cycle-Safe U/2™bicycle racks also support the bike above the center of gravity and give support at two spots on the bike frame. This is technically better than wave type racks, which offer poor support, are often misused and result in a reduction in capacity. The clean lines of the one-bend inverted U/2™ bicycle rack design are safer for pedestrian traffic around bike parking or in dimly lit areas.
