DUO I OAK
DUO I OAK
The bike is our pride and joy, but when it comes to storing it indoors it can be a conundrum: we want it to be easily accessible and yet we hate tripping over it all the time (especially if there is a partner or children in the house!).
But it’s true that we can’t possibly imagine abandoning our beautiful machine in a dark and humid garage: we want to cradle and display it at home, in the neatest way.
Finding the most stylish and functional solutions is our mission. We now welcome in our bike furniture collection the minimalist option, with a twist of Vadolibero style: DUO. Maximum performance, minimum effort.
There isn’t a simpler solution to keeping your bike secure and off the ground than DUO: it’s a twin rack, two solid hardwood hooks mounted on the wall. Simplicity is often the right answer, but some details here make it truly unique.
DUO is made of black tinted oakwood: a classic and sturdy essence that will last forever. And it’s provided with exclusive hand-stitched leather accessories.
Both hooks are wrapped with a black leather band that cushions the top tube with reassuring softness, preventing painful scratches. You can add, as an option, two black pierced leather frame straps: their stretchable length (25 cm) allows you to use them with most of the top tube sizes (up to 5,5 cm diameter); once they are wrapped around the frame, you are sure the bike won’t ever fall off the rack. And they make it convenient to do basic maintenance. In the box, it’s included the adjustable black leather wheel strap, provided with a Velcro strip: it blocks the front wheel, keeping it straight when the bike is parked on the DUO.
In terms of functionality, the flexible installation is a relevant benefit: DUO allows you to hang any road, gravel, e-bike or folding bicycle straight on the wall. You set the position of the two hooks, according to the shape of your frame.
The hook’s length (35 cm) fits almost all kinds of handlebars, up to 60 cm wide. It can easily support up to 25 kg (depending on the wall), but if you don’t want to lift the bike, you can mount it at a height suitable for the wheels to touch the ground.
DUO looks good also when you are out riding: thanks to its essential design, it sits seamlessly within the most stylish of interiors. And when you look at it from the front, you just see two dots on the wall.
It’s very easy to install. In the box, you’ll find the screws and the plugs (suitable for solid brick, concrete, or timber walls), that you’ll drill into the wall; the final step is hand-turning the sticks into the screws. That’s it!
