End the bend…and love your bike!

As passionate cyclists and lovers of bikes, Cyclepods have made the decision to cease selling certain styles of cycle racks that we feel do not provide cyclists with the levels of security and quality they deserve in their cycle storage.

Known to many cyclists as ‘wheelbenders’, cycle racks which only hold the front or rear wheel of bikes will no longer be available to buy through Cyclepods. These types of racks often only allow for the wheel to be locked, creating this sort of situation;

Where all a thief has to do is use the quick release and they walk away with the rest of the bike. Leaving the cyclist with this;

Whilst some still buy these products, purely due to their low cost, we can no longer in good conscience offer them as part of our range. We feel passionately that they do not serve cyclists and often end up redundant.

Speaking as cyclists ourselves, there’s nothing worse than reaching your journey’s end and finding these are your only option of storage!

We are hoping that by making the move to reduce availability of these racks in cycle storage facilities, a new industry standard can be set that serves cyclists better, reduces bike theft and helps clients buy right and only buy once (until they need to add more spaces due to demand!).

So help us to ‘End the Bend’ and join us in our campaign for cycle storage based on delivering quality and security!

Please contact one of our sales executives for more information on our products, including our Secured by Design range, by calling 01959 546046 or emailing info@cyclepods.co.uk.
