Long Description:
The aesthetic component was important as a potential factor in encouraging people to cycle. The bike racks first appeared on campus in the summer of 2012 and since then the students, who have since graduated, tried to commercialize their product through their company VeloCyko, unfortunately defunct since 2015. The bike rack is space saving because it stores bikes vertically, saving 40% more space compared to a traditional bike rack, an important feature on this campus and in many other places in our densely crowded cities. It also discourages theft because when locking a bike, the cyclist stands upright and is visible rather than crouched down and out of sight as a thief would want to be.
