Show Us Your Rack

The San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is sponsoring a design-a-rack contest, following the New York’s CityRacks competition last year. We’ve blogged about designer racks before and often wonder why they’re either after thoughts attached to a building, brutalist, or nonfunctioning.

A fav is this bike bench

also see David Byrne’s art racks

and secure bike racks built for cities with thieves. There’s one with a pump in it as well.

Readers,

What good racks have you seen or what would you design?
