The Chainlink


Hi, my name is Eric, I am trying to start a new Chicago based company that makes handmade wooden wall mounted bike racks.  The company will be called Trophy Club, and I thought some of you guys might be interested in my products.  I am an avid woodworker and bike enthusiast.  A few years ago I started making these wall-hung wooden bike racks, and now I’ve decided to start selling them.  Please check them out if you have time.  The quickest & easiest way to check them out would be to watch the video I made on

If you haven’t heard of Kickstarter, it’s an online project startup website.  The first batch of me making these will be offered through that Kickstarter website until August 5th.  These are all custom made for what you want and made here in Chicago.    Here’s the link: it has a Q and A


 You could also check out my page on Facebook:   Please "Like" the page if you would like to be updated of new products

 Thank you for taking the time to check out Trophy Club.  If you have any questions, please feel free to shoot me an email at


Thanks again and if you have any comments or suggestions let me know,

Nifty.  I like the one with the Chicago stars but they're all unique and interesting.  Are you making use of repurposed materials?
Thank you very much.  I am a very green person in general.  My day job is always trying to throw away materials and wood that I feel should not go to a landfill.  So, whenever possible I do take them and re-purpose the materials, but for the most part with these racks I do not.  Due to the width of the wood, it is hard to find scrap hardwood with a good grain pattern, but for the unseen wood I do use wood saved from the landfill.  I also started making picture frames just recently with wood saved from landfills.  The lumber I do buy is always the first and second most green, quick-growing wood.  I also always try to buy wood that has the FSC (an eco-friendly watch group) logo on it.  I actually do have plans in the future to do an all green series with salvaged wood when available, but I don’t own a car, so it is kind of hard to pick some up at this time.  Thanks again and hope this helps.
ok - thanks for the very thorough answer.  I will check these out more when I get the chance but unfortunately I already have some wall mounts seeing much use presently...keep up the good work this is a very cool idea and the photos are very professional.
No worries.  And thank you so much for the kind words.  Yeah the photos turned out okay for a $100 Best buy camera.  Thanks again
Eric, you still making these?

Hi Julie,

Yes, I'm still making them.  You can check them out at my website,
