My bicycle is among one of my most treasured possessions. It gives me mobility, but I also can fix it myself, giving me a sense of accomplishment, both physical and mental. Instead of hiding your trusty metal steed in the basement when you're done riding, Swiss-based PostFossil has for sale the Shoes Books and Bike entrance rack that allows you to visibly store your bike in style without taking precious real-estate away.
Cycling is again enjoying increasing popularity in European cities. With a level of efficiency of about 95%, the bicycle is the most ecological way of getting around there is. The Shoes, Books and a Bike stand puts the wonder machine on a platform, frames the bicycle and gives it a deserved place of honour in the apartment. Like a trophy in a glass jar, the bicycle represents sporting activity, balance and health. The stand itself is constructed of the simplest of materials such as pine, screws and coconut fibre, thus also making it affordable for the tight budget.
