This is the coolest thing I have seen in a while. This is a new concept for me. Does anyone have any experience with one of these? I am interested to see if people actually use them. I would.

|Would you leave your Colnago in one of these? I doubt it.
I wonder if serious commuters would actually use these things, or if it is the fancy of some well-intentioned politician. I commute on a cheap bike, but mine goes under the stairs in the lobby. I don't want to chance parking it somewhere where I can lose it or parts of it.
There is one up in Palo Alto that seems ideally placed, but I would be afraid to ride up there. Traffic is pretty heavy there. Just walking from the Caltrain station across the street to Stanford University is an adventure in survival!

|and it works great. The bikes are kept in a locked storage area, to which only the employees have access. It's just like valet parking your car.|
|The buses have bikeracks in Mpls...||filtersweep|

|... they unfold from the front bumper so you can "take it with you"- on the down side, until they finish the light rail project, the bus IS the only public transportation. I've never seen a nice road bike on the front of a bus, but it is the thought that counts!|| |
