Title (EN) BICYCLE STORAGE APPARATUS AND METHOD
(FR) INSTALLATION ET TECHNIQUE DE RANGEMENT DE BICYCLETTES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A bicycle storage apparatus and method are provided. The apparatus may have a collar within which a core member is rotatably engaged. A pair of locking arms is pivotally attached to the core member such that each of the locking arms has an open position designed to permit insertion or withdrawal of a bicycle wheel and a closed position designed to block withdrawal of the wheel. Rotation of the core member locks the locking arms in the closed position. A bicycle can be stored in the apparatus by elevating the front wheel above the rear wheel, inserting the front wheel into engagement with the locking arms, and rotating the front wheel from a substantially vertical plane to lock the locking arms in the closed position. The collar and the core member may be designed such that they can be formed by blow molding with a simple, two-plate mold system.
(FR)Cette invention concerne une installation et une technique de rangement de bicyclettes. L'installation peut comporter un collier dans laquelle un élément central est monté rotatif. Une paire de mâchoires est fixée pivotant à l'élément central de telle sorte que chacune desdites mâchoires a une position ouverte permettant l'insertion ou le retrait d'une roue de bicyclette et une position fermée pour le blocage de la roue. En tournant, la partie centrale immobilise les mâchoires sur la position de fermeture. Pour le rangement de la bicyclette, on soulève la roue avant au-dessus de la roue arrière, on l'insère dans les mâchoires et on la fait tourner à partir d'un plan sensiblement vertical pour immobiliser les mâchoires en position fermée. Le collier et l'élément central peuvent être conçus de manière à pouvoir être fabriqués par soufflage avec un système de moulage simple à deux plaques.
