The 'Rack Fiend' bicycle rack liberates your precious floor area and stylishly compliments your wall, bicycle and space.
Produced while in Toronto, ON, Ben Miley explored the aesthetically stimulating concept of a cantilever when developing the slender but powerful form of the 'Rack Fiend' bicycle rack. Elegantly suspend your bicycle and display your passion and pride for cycling as if it were a work of art upon your wall. In fact, when not holding a bicycle, the 'Rack Fiend' emulates a piece of sculpture and casts beautiful shadows, providing enjoyment anytime.
Bicycle enthusiasts love the Rack Fiend as it brings forth a truth in craftsmanship and a simplicity in materials, installation and use; and will last for perhaps a century or more at the cost of an extremely low environmental impact in its production.
Two forty-eight centimeter bent steel rods with inset leather pads mirror each other on two axis to form "arms" to cantilever a bicycle and are welded to a nineteen centimeter diameter circle of rolled steel rod containing two counter-bored holes for mounting, which forms the complete fixture. Materials include leather and ten millimeter powder-coated steel rod. The fixture mounts to a wall with toggle bolts, anchors or screws and is suitable for drywall, wood paneling, brick, concrete, and others. The Rack Fiend measures thirty-seven by nineteen by twenty-nine centimeters.
