    That's fantastic, if for no other reason than preventing theft and vandalism. I'd totally pay for that if I was commuting in a city.

    Worth it's weight in not having to carry a few big fat locks, I'd say.

    They should install those at train stations, I imagine they'd make quite a few commuters happy.

    It's totally cool but I think you need very expensive urban real estate for that to be financially viable. The rest of us will have to make do with Bikelink facilities at our train stations.

    pretty amazing idea. solves several problems at once.

    I think you need not just expensive urban real estate but also a lot of bikes that need parking. Not gonna work in places where you only see at most a handful of bikes parked at any one time.

    college campuses could use this, though.

    This is the entrance to a large 1700 bike underground parking garage here in Eindhoven. The exit can just be seen in the background of the picture.

    One of at least three in the city centre. Biking is a way of life here.

    I wonder what the limitations are in terms of tire size. Could I park my Moonlander in one of these?
