The Bike Valet: Free Up Space and Show off the Cycle

We appreciate the simple and sleek functionality of the Bike Valet by Sacramento-based Reclamation Art + Furniture. The design frees up space in tight quarters and elevates the bicycle to an artistic focal point instead of a hall traffic hindrance. The handcrafted frames are cut from cold steel, finished and dressed with leather or neoprene pads. Reclamation lets customers choose their preferred pad material and one of six frame colors to customize the rack to taste or space.

If you could benefit from some sleek storage or wish to support their product and mission, head over to their Kickstarter page and make a pledge. They have three days to go to meet their $10,000 goal, which will essentially fund 100 pre-orders of the valet. The funds will also help them get back on track and recoup their losses due to an unfortunate robbery of their tools and materials. The scummy perpetrators cut a hole in the wall of their workshop to drag out any machinery they could. See their video below to learn more about the project and creators.

What's your ride? Love the idea but pedal a beach cruiser, mixty, step through or other frame style? Consider supporting—they're working on designs for a variety of other frame styles.
