Bike parking at Home Depot

Bike racks must be at least 3 feet away from other obstructions, like this curb at the bottom of the wall. Also, note the corner: You can’t park bikes on both racks at the same time. Thankfully, since a truck always blocks this area, no one will use it. They can use the Home Depot’s "decorative" fence on the sidewalk, or the remaining parking meters.
As you can see, I cannot lock my bike the way this rack is intended because the curb prevents the proper positioning of the bike. Because of this rack’s poor siting and installation, it may induce some cyclists to only lock the front wheel.

This drop-in bike clinic is free. I love this space. Too bad they have to find a new one. The garage is going to replaced by new housing, probably yuppie loft space.
Bikes in the apartment

An example of integrating bikes into the decor of an NYC apartment, for an Apartment Therapy comment.
(By the way, there are
three four other bikes in the living/dining room!)
We use and recommend these racks.
