Instead of 78 half-usable bike racks, there are now 99 bike parking spots: 53 lift-assist Stack Racks, 22 vertical racks and 12 floor racks (parks 24 bikes) that allow for the highest density of bikes in the small space. There’s even dedicated space for cargo bikes, which are fast becoming a popular option among urban commuters.
The room boasts a Bike Fixation Deluxe Public Work Stand—with tools for riders to fix their own bikes and two indoor pumps.
When it comes to gear storage and other finishing touches, the space really shines:
- Commuters can hang their bike lock to the locking bar so that they don’t have to carry it back and forth between home and work every day. They leave their lock in the bike room and then have it available to lock their bike during the day.
- A helmet tree offers easy storage for bikeshare helmets.
- A shoe rack gives commuters space to store their SPDs or athletic footwear during the workday.
- Commuters can write messages analog style on a whiteboard mounted near the fix-it stand.
