It’s summer for many of us and riders are everywhere. But if you’re a rider when not on the roads or trails of your personal urban maze where and how are you storing your bikes? Are they clustered with your partners’ wheels behind the couch? Maybe standing in the middle of a hallway just waiting for an energetic spirit to simply tap the handlebars resulting in a now fully un-passable pathway. The opportunities for better bicycle storage inventions are boundless.
The CLUG is a discrete and tiny wall-mounted clip that grabs hold of your bikes tires so it can be stored or hung anywhere. Designed by Vancouver agency Hurdler the clips build any suffocating indoor space into a bike storage facility that’s secure while keeping the aesthetic of your household in tact.
Each clip is sized according to your road bike and can hold a variety of weights. But if you’re worried and your bike is heavier than normal, a second CLUG is an easy solution affixed to the other tire to ensure a secure storage. The clip is made of two pieces, which are joined together when purchased. An inner silicone material grips the tire at the same time doesn’t harm rim materials. While the outer gripper shell holds it all together screwed into a wall and as a white shell makes the holder unnoticeable.
The CLUG can be affixed anywhere as seen by the comical installations displayed by the Hurdler team. Originally available on Kickstarter, the CLUG can be placed on pre-order on the product site.
