 FUNDED!!! Thank you everyone for the support! We are all so happy! We still have 17 days to go, this is not over yet, but we can already start the production! Thanks for believing in this! 

An indoor parking solution for your bike. It provides the right accomodation for your bike while keeping your walls and furniture safe. 

// Una solución para aparcar tu bici en casa. Ofrece el soporte ideal a tu bici mientras mantiene a salvo paredes y muebles.

 Sandra García (1986) and Sergio Mendoza (1984) from Valencia, Spain. In the last 10 years we have been working in/for different design fields: graphic, product, interiors, art direction, creative consulting...

 

We are ready to go. The thing is that to make it affordable as a product we need to reach a certain amount of orders. So as soon as we succeed (we hope!) we will be ready to ship your WAO Bike Stand in July.

You don't really have to, it's not a death-life situation.. But it you do you will be giving a chance to our team and us to dedicate less hours to less significant jobs and more hours to this special project.

Long ago we decided to work only for projects and people that inspire us and 'do good' in some way. We like working with small traditional industries and craftsmen we know and respect. We are also happy to see the project grow into a bigger thing where we can involve more and more people: tradition, skills, creativity all blending together.

 

The WAO Bike Stand is made in solid wood and powder coated steel. And we bend, weld and paint the steel ourselves.

The powder paint is mixed manually and provides a unique finish, as it never fully blends, mantaining a beautiful visible grain. 

Choose your reward in the column in the right. Bare in mind that WAO Bike Stand will retail for 49€ + shipping (16€ for Europe 7€ for Spain) next month on our online shop. We are also closing agreements with more and more shops in Europe and the retail price will be around 55€

We will get in contact with you when/if the project succeeds to ask for your choice of color. We hand paint them (powder coated + 350º) so we have no stock problems, don't worry.

Coral red / Blue / Green / Black / White / Yellow

Yes, we know it sucks. It makes everyone unhappy but it is a necessary cost. And yes, we too cannot believe how expensive it gets. But it is more expensive than you think. We are deducing 5€ from every real shipping cost to make it less frightening.

 

 The WAO Bike stand can support any bike as long as the wheel does not exceed the 5cm of space between the two archs. We recommend it for larger wheel sizes: smaller sizes (folding bikes) do fit but the spokes of the rim can scratch the paint on the interior sides of the bike stand.

An important part of our project, as in most of our work, are collaborations. What good is an adventure if it wont bring us new friends and teach us new things? As we said before bikes are just an excuse, and we are planning to use it to bring more people together. Our first collaboration are the temporary tattoos by spanish illustrator Herminia Mira. 

 

Risks and challenges

Production is actually our most solid area. We're counting on this funding to help us have more time for distribution, promotion, etc.

We have been 18 months developing the WAO Bike Stand and have worked with a few shops in Valencia, Barcelona, Paris, London and Berlin to test them and get feedback.

We are ready to produce right now! We can actually (and have already) do them one by one BUT cost-wise that is not viable and we want to establish a proper structure, we don't want to drive our team crazy!

We have the most amazing group of people, machinery and know-how but we need produce larger batches to make the project affordable. This means batches of 200 units for instance. Just enough to have us dedicating propper time to the project instead of stealing hours from our sleep.
