The Cycloc provides handy, and trendy, bike storage, ideal where space is at a premium, and can be mounted to hold your bike horizontally or vertically. Fitting it is pretty simple: bolt the bracket to a wall then attach the bucket-shaped outer with the bolts supplied, adjust the angle on the sliding ﬁttings, and that’s it.
It doesn’t come with wall ﬁtting bolts – you’ll need to use the right ones for your wall. We ﬁxed ours to a block wall and the ﬁttings added another £8 to the price. As well as holding a bike, the bucket shape is handy for storing gloves, lights and so on, and two 2in holes in the Cycloc mean you can also thread a lock through to secure your bike.
It is only plastic though, so isn’t a security product. While it’s a great design, we’re not convinced it’s worth the money: £60 plus postage plus the ﬁttings makes it nearly £80, which isn’t great value compared with Torc’s high security Maxi Shackle, for example, which costs £42 including ﬁttings.
