The Big, Black, Bewildering Bike Rack


Calhoun St., Charleston, S.C.

I'm just not getting it, kids. This is described as a modern bike rack built by Clemson students and a city design team. For a cost of $10,000 it houses 9 city employee's bikes and has a few open spaces for the public. It is supposed to be a museum quality piece.

I was standing there scratching my head when a gentleman came up and reminded me that the City Paper had written an article on it so here is the link. I've seen some pretty creative bike racks in my travels and we certainly need them in Charleston, but I'm not feeling the love for this one.
