I started making artsy wall hung bike racks. Check em out if you have time

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

Kickstarter.com.

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

 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 eptrophyclub@gmail.com

 

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

Eric

I put my bike in a room. With six others. Theyre not exactly trophys, but we still love them. How much do you sell these for?

Best of luck in this endeavor.

FWIW, I'm not sure about the name "Trophy Club."  It makes me think of shallow relationships, and applied to bikes, it makes me think of the focus being on material value rather than usefulness.

How about "Well-Hung?"  :-)

Hey thanks for the comments and checking it out.  Yeah the first run of these things I am doing through Kickstarter.com and the prices are up on the site.  Thanks for the help Carfree and thanks for the nice words.  Thanks h333 Yeah I know what you are saying.  The original name was going to be Wall Hung for this project I am doing.  Then I actually toyed around with Well Hung but all my friends thought it and Wall Hung was kind of cheesy.  But I still liked it and made a T-shirt to keep that name alive even if I didn't end up using it in the end. Oh well thanks for the input.    Picture of tee shown below.    Thanks again Eric

These are lovely. Will they work with step-through frames/mixtes?

Nice idea, I really like the cherry/mahogany looking one in the last pic.   I'd like a longer version for more storage space, although I realize it would limit sales to those with larger frame sizes.  Might create enough shelf space to hold shoes/helmet, which I often can't find when it's time to go for a ride.

 

Interested in any native hardwood?  I have lots of oak, cherry, elm, etc., rough sawn with a portable sawmill here on my farm.

nice

Hello Ash and thank you very much.  This unfortunately doesn't work on that style bike, but you are not the first person to ask, and I do have plans to do one in the future.  I have an idea, but I need to test it and see if it works.  So, it is pretty far off, but yeah even my GF has a step-through, and she has been on my case about it too.  If you are on the Facebook, you could like Trophy Club, and I will inform people through there when I have done it.  If not, I will try to send another reply when I do.  The FB link is http://www.facebook.com/TrophyClub if you want to.  Thanks again.

 Thank you so much, I really appreciate it.  Yeah that is an earlier version of my most popular one, The Executive. I made that one for a buddy with the idea that he puts his bike lock between the wood and the bike frame.  But yeah I do have a shelf one that is a lot bigger, and I could probably do it even wider if you would like.  I will attach a picture of The Executive and the shelf one I called Shelf Mcshelferstein.  And I am always interested in hardwood.  Where is your farm?  Maybe we could talk about some interesting trades or something?  Thanks again for checking it out.  Eric

Those are really beautiful.  If I had wall space to hang my bikes, I would buy one.

 

Good luck.

Hello Spencer.  I responded to your question.  But I didn't put it under reply so I don't know if you got a notification because I just posted it under the general thread.   Anyways thanks again.

Looking to possibly purchase?

Any way you could make a double? Maybe with a floor mount? like one higher than the other?

That way I could store both my road bike ad my mountain bike and your groovy drawers would be perfect for all the gear, wrenches & doo dads.
