I cannot possibly pass by bike storage without noticing. Especially if it is as beautiful as this piece. A product by Long Beach based design studio Ballou Projects is quite literally called Very Nice Bike Rack. And I couldn’t help but agree with this self-congratulatory name. Minimal and sleek, the item blends with its surroundings, looking like a cool shelf. And although the idea is not particularly new, I do like the Ballou Projects’ variation. The rack is mounted on the wall, elevating your bike and freeing precious floor space. It is perfect for a horizontal top tube bike that weighs less than 25 pounds. The floor stand version is also available. It holds just about any type of bike and comes with felt spacer pads to accommodate various tire widths. These racks come in bent plywood, walnut veneer or white powder coasted steel.

I want one for my son’s bike! Do I look for it as Ballou Projects?!
