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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks again and if you have any comments or suggestions let me know,
Hello Eric. Thanks for the interest in my bike racks. I am doing a presale for the first batch through a online pledge-for-reward website called Kickstarter.com. I was making these things for friends for the past couple of years but needed some more tools to make them quicker and more efficiently, so I put them on the site. I am trying to raise $4000 in orders, so I can buy the tools needed, and there are only a few days left. As soon as it goes through I will buy those tools and start cranking them out. The link for the Kickstarter site is here. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/765068396/bike-rack-storage-sol...
So let me know if you have any problems or questions. I am really looking forward to getting these out to people. They look so much cooler in real life than they do in picture even. Thanks again.
P.S. Sorry about the delay getting back to you. I was camping for the weekend, and my phone would not let me send out a message through this form. Thanks again Eric

Looking to possibly purchase?
Hi mike thanks for checking the bike racks out. I could I am sure and probablly will do that in the future. But there is a lot of variables and probably wont have time to do that for a while. I have to concentrate on the ones I have now for a bit. But I might try and figure that out this winter and start doing some testing and see how it works. If you are on Facebook If you want to "Like" Trophy club I will keep people updated through there. I will also try and remember you and send out a message when I get a little closer to figuring that out. But thank you for the interest and hopefully I will get back to you soon. Thanks again Eric

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.
Hi guys. Thank for all the support and kind words. There is only 3 days to go and the kickstarter pledge drive is almost at its goal. If you would like to support Trophy Club bike racks but do not need a bike rack at this time, you could always grab a t-shirt.

Marginally more practical is this handmade (or duder-made) decorative bike-hanging box:
Though I'm not sure I really needed to know any of this:
Also, I moved in with the girlfriend a few months ago and lost my wood shop. So, I have been working in the second bedroom next to the kitchen. I think it is pretty convenient being close to the kitchen, but she does not see it that way, so I was thinking of renting a garage spot. Plus, my time is very limited in there if the neighbors are home, due to noise.Just say you need to rent a new workspace, the rest is what they call "TMI."
Thank you so much.
love them wall (well?) hung racks!;)
