Those things many people think of when someone mentions “bicycle rack,” that is, those contraptions made of usually metal bars that you are expected to stick a bike wheel into, are not bike racks. They are actually potentially very damaging to most bike wheels. Bike wheels aren’t designed to withstand a lot of pressure from the side. If I find myself forced to use one of those things, I never stick any of my bike wheels into the bars of those racks. I always try to set my bike just outside one end of the rack and lock to the rack there.This would be a good piece to hand any merchant or landlord you are trying to persuade to provice for their biking customers. For the whole piece, just click Businesses And Bicycles.
