The 45Bici Bike Rack Conserves Space on Crowded City Sidewalks

Plenty of metropolises have grown organically with narrow streets and would benefit from the 45Bici Bike Rack concept. Cities can only encourage the practice of an eco-friendly commute, but many cannot support the volume of two-wheelers that must be locked up outside.

Andre Moreira Dias proposes a system that keeps bicycles within 60 centimeters of building so that as little footpath area is consumed as possible. This is achieved by the development of crooked parking projections made of bent tubular metal.

The designer also experimented with sharper angles for even narrower alleys and the only change would be the degree of the bend. Each is intended to be mounted against the wall in a line, adjacent to other 45Bici Bike Racks with the same inclination.
