01/23/2012: "Handsome Rack in SaMo"
I saw this handsome bike rack by the Santa Monica Pier on Friday, right by where Cirque du Soleil was setting up. I don't know whether it belongs to Cirque or to the City of Santa Monica, but I hope the latter, and I hope we see more of them.
With two mounting points it is as easy to install as a wave rack, but with the clever bend it provides as much support to parked bikes as a row of inverted-U or staple racks. And it looks a bit less utilitarian than either, while actually being more so.
Note the crappy "wheelbendeer" racks sulking in the shadows behind it!
