    Nice Rack!, April 9, 2012

    The Feedback Sports Velo Cache bike rack is simply the best bike storage rack on the market at any price. I purchased one last year for my office and another last week for the house. I originally purchased the Velo Cache due to its looks. Many bike racks on the market are rather kludgy looking, or require you to secure them to a wall or ceiling. But the Velo Cache is free-standing and stable, even though it has a smaller foot print than most other racks. The Velo Cache is a sleek aluminum column with well-designed cradle arms that attach to the back of the column rather than the sides or front. This design hides the mechanics of the rack and provides a clean, uninterrupted form. The Feedback Sports name stickers on the front of the rack are an annoying distraction from an otherwise great looking rack, but by bike industry standards, the stickers are actually understated and tasteful. I’d peel them off, but fear the resulting patch might be worse than the sticker.

    The rack is very well designed. The design of the rack and cradle arms allows the cradles to be nearly flush with the face of the rack, thereby distributing the weight of the bikes nearly equally between the front and back of the rack. In other words, even when the rack is loaded with two bikes, it still feels stable and does not appear any more likely to tip forward than when empty. But the absolutely brilliant feature of this rack is the independently adjustable cradle arms: All four cradle arms can be adjusted independently, a feature that allows the rack to handle sloping top tubes, kids’ bikes, small frames, and full suspension bikes.

    The assembly instructions are well written in English with good diagrams. One tip to ease assembly: When installing the cradle arms, attach the cradle arm loosely to the plate washer with one screw through the top hole, THEN slide the plate washer down the track on the back of the rack. Once in place, install the screw in the bottom hole (through the cradle arm and plate washer) and tighten both screws. This tip may not make sense until you have the rack in hands, and then it may be obvious, but I struggled for 10 minutes trying to align the holes after sliding the plate washer into the track as implied by the directions. The problem is the plate washer is shorter (smaller) than the plate of the cradle arm, and sits below the cradle arm in the recessed track, making it difficult to hold the plate washer in place to align the holes. Feedback Sports could solve this problem by either modifying the instructions with the tip above, or adding 10mm to the length of the washer plate. Again, this is a very minor quibble with the instructions. Overall, the Velo Cache rack is the easiest thing I have assembled all year. Assembly takes less than 15 minutes, and probably less with the tip above.

    If you are looking for a good-looking, stable, well-designed two bike rack which flawlessly holds bikes of any shape or size, this is the rack for you. Highly recommended.

    This review is from: Feedback Sports Velo Cache 2 Bike Storage Rack (Sports)
    I don’t know how you intend to use the rack, but mine lives in plain sight in my apartment. I can see and touch my beautiful bikes daily, and when I’m going to ride, there’s just no barrier to grabbing the bike, getting in the elevator, and onto the road in seconds. For me, this is a quality-of-life experience. Mechanically, the rack is sturdy and light enough to be easily moved at need — and it looks good all by itself.
