The streets of NYC, at a glance, seem to provide a ubiquitous bike rack model, well, besides trees and poles. You know the one. It resembles a wet noodle with alternating U-turns. We can't help but think that Roel Vanderbeek's attractive and space-saving design would make a dandy trade-out for the old hat mainstay. The bent steel check-mark structure retains a slim profile, just large enough to cradle a front wheel and provide a spot to lock up. Vanderbeek's bike stand design is part of the Wolters' Street Furniture collection.

there is no way one could use a U-lock properly when locking up a bike with that bike rack. most will agree the proper way to lock a bike would be to put the U-lock through the frame and rear wheel (and the front, if you remove it and place it with the rear), and then lock it to the rack. from the pictures on the site, it seems that this rack is only meant for flimsy cable locks, which are passed through that small hole at the top of the rack. got a pair of cable cutters? got a free bike.
