Bike Tree


Posted by John Goulden Categories: Design, Transportation


Bike TreeYou’ve seen it before.  A bike rack with a cut chaincable laying on the ground, or a locked up wheel being the only portion of the bike left behind.  To combat this, people resort to different approaches.  Some use the latest in super-duper, titanium-impregnated, hardened-steel locks, and others remove a seat or a wheel (or two).  Whatever your method, if somebody wants your bicycle badly enough, they’re going to get it.  Unless of course, they can’t reach it.  The Bike Tree is a Swiss invention that lifts your bicycle overhead and stores it under a protective canopy.  Not only is your bike now protected from theft and vandalism, but from Mother Nature as well.  A non-contact smart card allows an authorized user to retrieve their bicycle and go about their merry way.  The Bike Tree can also be utilized as a bike rental facility, and since it can be solar powered, is easy to implement no matter the location.
