Abstract: front page image
(EN)Disclosed herein is a modular bicycle storage structure designed to maximize the number of bicycles that can fit into it. The structure is designed to provide a private locker to each bicycle, which is accessible by a locker door, and secured using a standard bicycle U-Lock. The structure may use bicycles that have foldable, twistable or removable handlebars in order to reduce their overall width. The user generally aligns the pedals in a specific way before inserting the bicycle into the structure. The pedals slide into a groove formed in the side wall. This allows for overlapping of pedals for adjacent bicycles providing a compact storage configuration.
(FR)L'invention concerne une structure de rangement de bicyclette modulaire conçue pour maximiser le nombre de bicyclettes qui peuvent y être installées. La structure est conçue pour fournir un dispositif de verrouillage particulier à chaque bicyclette, qui est accessible par une porte de casier, et fixé à l'aide d'un cadenas en U de bicyclette standard. La structure peut utiliser des bicyclettes qui présentent un guidon qui peut être plié, tordu ou amovible, afin de réduire leur largeur globale. L'utilisateur aligne généralement les pédales de manière spécifique avant d'insérer la bicyclette dans la structure. Les pédales coulissent dans une rainure formée dans la paroi latérale. Ceci permet de superposer les pédales des bicyclettes voisines, ce qui permet une configuration de stockage compacte.
