In 1975, Terry Smith invented a one-piece bike rack that revolutionized the way bikes could be stored in garden sheds and garages. The rack was quickly tagged “The Bike-Up” and soon proved popular for solving bicycle parking problems in bike-rooms and underground parking areas The BIKE-UP was soon followed by the RING RACK, MAXIMIN and other user-friendly racks that are now the favorite choice of architects and property managers throughout North America. They also solve the problem of organizing bicycle parking at universities, schools, hospitals and other institutions. To see more, visit www.bikeup.com.
Vertical storage requires 40% less space than floor storage. Wall storage requires no floor space at all.
In 1991, Terry re-invented the BIKE-UP to accommodate all the improvements of modern bikes. Included in the new patent was a two piece version to meet the needs of individual bike owners. The BIKE-UP 2 can be used wherever space is available in garages, sheds, spare rooms, basements and closets. You can even install it on the back of doors. And it is safe because you can’t trip over it when you are not using it.
Money-wise, the two-piece version of the BIKE-UP is available at a fraction of the cost of the commercial model.
