Since Cole started Bates Crates, we've both been paying more attention to handmade cycling goods. with that in mind, I got a hold of Urban City Bike shelves, and they sent us one of their bike shelves to check out review.
First off, to all of the naysayers out there, as well as the people that think "I could just do that myself!", go do it. You'll have a much better understanding of handmade goods and why they cost the price they do.
While there's a few shelves out there now, Urban City's is the original. There's a reason why people try and copy things like this- it's because they're straight up killer.
Merging fashion with function, Urban City's shelves are beautiful pieces of working art. They make a really nice place to put your bike without ruining your paint job or your wall, while giving you a place to put a stack of books, records, or your gear in one spot.
The shelf itself is well constructed and will easily hold your bike and then some. It comes with all necessary hardware, so installation should be a snap as long as you can find a stud in a wall. Not to hard.
Overall I think the shelf is great, and for those of you that can appreciate hand made cycling items, and those with limited space but need to bring your steed indoors, I suggest checking this out!
All bike shelves are handmade from either Cherry Wood or Walnut & then finished with a natural wax.
