Feedback Sports had quite a few new products on display at Interbike this year. They have a new pivoting bike rack that holds the bikes vertically and maximizes space by allowing you to swing the bikes closer to the wall. The Pro Truing Stand gets some nice updates. The Velo Column is a nice vertical rack for indoors with a sleek ano aluminum finish.
In this video, Feedback Sports Founder and President Doug Hudson gives us the highlights of these new products.
The new Velo Hinge from Feedback Sports is a pivoting wall hook that allows you to mount the bikes vertically in it and then swing them to the left or right, thus saving space. The design is very simple and the hook folds away when not in use. There is a rear wheel bumper that keeps the bike from swaying that mounts to the wall where the rear tire contacts it.
