The story behind The Bike Hanger
The Bike Hanger came about shortly after the creation of KP Cyclery. We started out here on Kickstarter in 2014 by making custom vintage bicycles. Shortly after, one of our customers asked if we had anything for storing a special bike. Our founder KP showed him what he had created for his own flat and the customer immediately clicked with the idea. Today we have perfect the design throughout the last 4 years and gladly share the latest - Copenhagen series with you.
The design of this latest series is inspired by the beautiful cycling capital of the World - Copenhagen. We use premium materials such as oak, AISI 304 stainless steel, aluminium and cork to give this product a truly premium look and feel. The form itself combines the classic antler shape with an edgy, almost cubism inspired solidity of sharp angles. The current colour scheme is named after one of the most dynamic areas of Copenhagen - Frederiksberg. More colour schemes will be added as stretch goals as the project progresses.
What exactly is it for?
The Bike Hanger, as name suggest, is meant for hanging one's bicycle. What ever you may be using your steady compatriot for - road cycling, commuting, cyclocross, fix gearing around - The Bike Hanger gives your bike a space in your living room, garage, hallway or why not outdoors.
The Bike Hanger is easy to mount
To mount The Bike Hanger, you will just need 3 screws in the wall. The unique zic-zac pattern of the mounting holes keep it safely on the wall, even if something accidentally tries to knock it off.
Comes with mounting hardware
From now on, all of our Bike Hangers come with an allen key for adjustment, dowels and screws included.
Made to fit your bike
The wall offset of the Bike Hanger can be adjusted to fit bikes with handlebars up to 60 cm wide without touching the wall, yet get it as close as possible.
Who we are - We are a bicycle boutique company KP Cyclery / KP Cykler in Danish. Founded in 2014 by Kaspar Peek, we produce custom bicycles, special projects like sidecars, cargo bikes, trailers and of course - Bike Hangers. Our motto is best summarised by Albert Einstein - "Try not to become a man (company) of success, but rather one of value".
Why do we need your support - As we know, small companies do not have the marketing might of the large ones. Every new product takes a lot of work before the launch, and frankly if it weren't for Kickstarter, we would not be able to be where we are today. To get reasonable prices for production, some parts have to be acquired in numbers and a project like this really helps us get going. Your support will truly make this product come alive - without it, it would be nearly impossible.
Can you support us without backing? Sure - it would be really a lot of help if you tell your friends about us. Just getting the word around can do miracles - be it through word of mouth or social media.
Risks and challenges
The risks are minimal. We have good working relations with our material suppliers and partners. Worst case scenario is that somethings may get delayed, but we have left some buffers when promising deadlines. If something comes up, we'll let you know right away.
