Love them! Especially 1st prizewinner. What’s the height, and the fabrication? hard to tell from the rendering. When it goes into production, will it be available for other locations in the city? I have a building in Leslieville, filled with artists/designers and a yoga studio, been trying to get bike racks….how will we ever be satisfied with ugly old bike racks now??!!
That’s a great question, K… I’ve asked it of the OCAD people I’m corresponding with. Thanks for bringing it up.
Nice. Unless you want to actually lock your bike to it! never good to have those wide posts because it so limits options for locks and locking. Was usability not a concern?
