DaHANGER DAN bike hook. Life is too short for just one bike.

$25,911

During our first Kickstarter campaign "DaHÄNGER" we received a lot of feedback, comments and questions. Here is what we kept hearing over and over: "I want to be able to store multiple bikes on a small section of wall without breaking the bank and not use ugly hooks." OK, challenge accepted.

After doing some semi scientific tests and measuring differences between horizontal and vertical storage we concluded that the pedal hook is the best solution for space saving multi bike storage.  

 Dan and his long legs: 

We gave Dan some extra long legs. This lets the bikes lean more towards the living space and allows for a staggering display of bikes. You can fit three (medium sized) bikes vertically on an eight foot high wall section.

Laser cut, bend and powder coated steel Made in the USA and GERMANY 

We want Dan to get to you as fast and affordable as possible. Shipping from two locations will allow us to take care of Customs/Taxes in Europe, Canada and the USA. The German manufacturer will produce for the European market and the US manufacturer will produce for the rest of the world. 

 

You will have the choice between three different colors: Blue, White and Red

Blue, White or Red powder coat
Blue, White or Red powder coat

The things we use everyday should bring us joy.  

The end of the ugly and boring bike hook era is here. Dan comes with a set of googly eyes stickers that conceal two of the four screws. He usually prefers to look at your bike, but it is up to you what Dan is allowed to see.   

How much weight can he hold?

If you can lift it, Dan will hold it.The old Red Phantom Schwinn replica weighs in at over 60 lbs, it's the heaviest bike in the fleet and no problem for Dan.

The floor space is for living: 

Life is expensive and your bike is not paying any rent. Consider this, instead of building an addition on your house or a second garage, you could be hanging your bikes up on the wall. Saving yourself thousands of dollars, which could be used to buy more bikes :)

It's never been easier to get the KOM jersey.

Life can be hard and the world we live in is not always rainbows and butterflies. This is why we think it’s important that the objects that we surround ourselves with should make us happy.

International Backers (not in Europe, Canada or USA)

We'll be shipping Dan worldwide!

There are different processes that apply specifically to international backers (outside of Europe, US and Canada) that we'd like you to be aware of. Please note that there is no way for us to charge any additional amount on our end for any applicable VAT/duties that may be a result of a specific country's local tax code. Therefore, these fees may be incurred upon receipt of your reward. These fees are the responsibility of each backer.

Shipping Costs (outside of Europe, US and Canada)

We have shopped around to find the most affordable shipping options and are also subsidizing some of the heavier parcels. Just FYI: The two shelves and Dan in a box weight in at around 6 lbs. which results in a heavy parcel. We can fit three sets in one box which gives you the best value since we don't triple the shipping costs.

Risks and challenges

With any project there are risks associated, however it is our job to make sure we minimize these risks for our backers.

Although we have tried to rule out any possible production delay through the prototyping process, there is always a chance that something unforeseen pushes a projects deadline further back. As a supporter, you will be getting updates on a regular basis and will be informed when a later arrival of your reward is anticipated. We are committed to offering the product as promised, if in the unforeseen event anything happens, we will alter our delivery time until our high quality standard is achieved.
