Most car owners keep their vehicles in garages. Bike owners don’t always have that luxury and even when they do, their lean green machines are left at the “mercy” of dust, animal pests, and both foot and wheeled traffic. Parking a two-wheeled ride in a yard, deck or landing can be even worse as exposure to the elements – and covetous criminals – is never a good thing. Eric Pearson of Alpen Storage Inc. has come up with an attractive, appealing and most of all effective answer to the problem of bicycle storage: the Alpen Bike Capsule.
“We took an artistic approach to industrial design, seamlessly blending form and function, to create a user-friendly solution with a sculptural aesthetic,” states Pearson. The Charlottesville, VA company he founded has been hard at work designing the Alpen Bike Capsule since 2015 and they’re now ready to introduce it to the public via pre-order.
