The elegant solution to keeping your bike upright during storage Add to ...

Any bike-obsessed urbanite (and likely some rural ones too) knows that one of the biggest stresses of cycling – in addition to the traffic, lack of dedicated bike lanes and ubiquitous potholes – is the daily dilemma of getting to work or coming home and thinking: “Where am I going to store this?”

Leaning it against the wall leads to scuff marks. Leaving it outside is fine if you don’t mind it getting stolen.

Vancouver-based studio Hurdler, run by designer Jon Winebrenner, is proposing a more elegant solution: the Clug. It’s a Timbit-sized, ultra-minimal, 3-D-printed wall clip that holds the bike upright, at a scuff-free distance, either standing on the back wheel, or closer to the ground on both wheels. (Especially for people with a slick, carbon-fibre frame, it sort of makes the velocipede look more like a sculpture than like clutter.)

The product is currently on Kickstarter, so it’s not quite available in stores. But considering that it’s basically raised the $32,000 goal in a matter of days, it should be only a matter of time.
