the local story
blueracks
Way back in 2009, we began with one goal. We wanted to build a better bike rack for Birmingham. What would a bike rack need to make it in our city?

First, most businesses in Birmingham are not overwhelmed with bike traffic, but there is a strong (albeit small) cycling community here. Shouldn't cyclists be rewarded for their efforts to use the best form of transportation there is? We thought so, too.

We began work on a bike rack that would hold 2 bicycles, and would allow cyclists to lock the front frame of the bike with the front wheel, and another section of the frame with the back wheel, using two u-locks.

Of course, not everyone needs that much security - that's why we also wanted to provide a quick an easy lock location using the top tube.

We began drawing and looking at how people were locking their bikes, as well as the good and bad things about current bike racks designed to hold two bicycles.

What did we come up with? Read about our first rack in the next section...

LOCAL 2 - for 2 bikes

A variant of the standard upside down U rack, LOCAL2 matches well with any bike frame. A 45 degree angle in the rack lines up with the down tube of a bicycle, allowing bikes of many different sizes to be locked securely.

This rack is great for a business looking to provide bicycle parking to customers, and allows for 2 bikes to be locked at the same time.

It is also perfect for placing a few racks in multiple locations throughout a college or school campus, when only a few bikes will be needed to be locked up at the same time.

LOCAL2 is best mounted in concrete with wedge anchor bolts. If no concrete areas are available to place the rack, a small concrete pad can be poured for mounting.

Fabricated from carbon steel, powder coated in either blue or red. Custom colors available.

LOCAL 4 - for 4 bikes

A freestanding unit, LOCAL4 can be mounted in concrete - or it can be left unmounted if security is not an issue, such as in a guarded parking deck.

The 45 degree angle allows for bikes of many sizes to be securely locked to the rack.

This rack is great for organizations that need a larger number of bicycles locked in one location, or need several spots to hold 4 bikes each.

Fabricated from carbon steel, powder coated in either blue or red. Custom colors available.
