Artsy bike-sy racks

I think the mark of a great city is the type of bike racks they provide. On that count, Perth though small in size, is great in creativity. I spotted this very interesting bike rack at Vic Park, today. Kudos to the designer for making a simple rack a real piece of art. It captures the various parts of a gentleman's bike and yet, remains so functional.

A family was walking past it and the father got so excited and tried to sit on it much to the amusement of his wife and toddler. That indeed is to me, a good design that engages people's attention, dont you think?

Come to think of it, improperly locked bikes end up looking like those racks.
