Wall Mount Displays Bikes As Home Decor [Video]
SHELFIE shows off your bikes and saves on space at the same time.
Bicycles are a great way to get around, but they are also a great way to clutter up your home – until someone created SHELFIE. The wall-mount uses the seat of your bike to hook and hang it on the wall, which not only looks good, but also means no scratched paint on the top tubes, or kinked cables.
Creared by Juergen Beneke, who lives in New York, the bike shelf makes it easy to include bikes as part of your life. With the popularity of bike-sharing schemes like Citi Bike, and the construction of additional bike paths, it’s a device that will prove invaluable to those who want to ride, but consider space a valuable commodity.
Shelfie even includes an actual shelf where you can store your bike helmet, reflectors, keys, and anything that makes sense. Because it’s so secure, you can also use the shelf to carry out basic maintenance on your bike, such as changing tires or refitting chains.
For the serious biker, SHELFIE is also a great way to display bikes that have seen better days. Maybe it was your first road bike, a BMX from your childhood, or a personally designed mountainbike – all of them can become unique ornaments that you show off to your friends.
