Bike Rack Art

Why settle for boring bike racks? Cities across the United States are installing artistic bike racks, some of which look too good to chain your bike on to! This one above is created by artist Tom Crimboli of Eastpointe, Michigan.

When creating streetscape such as artistic bike racks, Herndon says artists should follow "the 300-pound drunk moron rule."

"Assume a 300-pound drunk moron is going to try to bend it, climb it or do something to it, because they will," he says. "It has to be built really, really well."

@Scotchdrnkr: As a bike commuter, I can tell you that whether you know it to be a bike rack doesn't matter a bit. Because when you are on the street looking to park your bike, you seek out the safest and closest options, whether they be racks, street signs, fences, rails, etc. Even where quality racks are available they're often full. Thus if it works as a bike rack, it is a bike rack.
