The Bike Hanger is an essential facility for the city of Seoul which aims to increase its bicycle-friendliness. The facility is not only low-maintenance and environmentally friendly, but by being installed in between buildings it takes advantage of many of the underutilized spaces that exist around the city. Each Hanger is able to store between 20-36 bicycles and it is easily attached to the sides of buildings, allowing minimal interference with the pedestrian traffic below.

The proposed Bike Hanger would utilize recycled plastic bottles for a canopy material and recycled stainless steel and recylced carbon frame for the frame materials. Taking into consideration the scale of the surrounding buildings the height for the Bike Hanger would not exceed the adjacent building heights. Maintenance costs would be low only $15/yer for lubrication and calibration of the human powered by pedaling storage system.
