The Bike Hanger – Dark Knight Edition: For many of us, a bicycle is more than a means of transport. It is a companion on the journey, and to many a piece of art. The Bike Hanger is a celebration of the associations we have with our bicycles, it displays it on a wall like a trophy it really is. Handmade out of a wooden shield and handlebars, The Bike Hanger draws most of its inspiration from antlers – looking good both with and without the bicycle on it. The Dark Knight Edition is inspired by the stealth-like modern carbon-framed bikes. It features an all-black matte colour scheme instead of a shiny vintage look of our regular Bike Hanger. Mounting The Bike Hanger 2.0 is very easy and safe. Install screws into your wall, and slide The Bike Hanger on them. Zic-zac pattern of the slots means the The Bike Hanger will not fall off the wall accidentally. You can adjust the wall offset to fit your bike. Bicycles with handlebars up to 60 cm wide fit without touching the wall. *Take note that the mounting screws are not included as walls are different. Installation instructions in the package will guide you through installation steps and hardware needed.
How Its Made
The wooden shield is handcarved from an 18 mm thick pine. The corners are then filleted to add to the clean lines. Main support structure begins its life a sheet of 2 mm steel, the 3 mounting holes are then pierced into it which make sure it will stay on the wall. After which a the horizontal tube is welded onto it. Now the follows the signature matte black layer of powdercoat, taking from the vintage look and making it a perfect match for the modern road and cyclocross bicycles. Alternative to natural cork bar ends, The Dark Knight Edition sports all-black, no-logo barends that nicely blend in with the bar tape that runs all the way up to the stem.
