I don't rate them at the price. Interesting design though.

4 bike key operated is £930! I was cycle advocate back in the 90s when I worked for the NHS and we bought steel bike cages, lots of them. Single units with a coffin shape, and mesh sides with a hinged door lockable with a padlock. I don't remember the exact cost but it was something less than two hundred a unit.
Crikey, you can get a bleeding metal garage for less than their four bike plastic pig!

Clever, but insanely expensive compared to the alternatives.

I like them, won't belong before we see copied moulds and cheaper shipping from china.
I'd have one, if A LOT cheaper for the front of house to keep the going the shops bikes in. I could never be arsed to unlock my garage and gates. I'd lose the bike emblem on it though, don't want passing gypos to be tempted to try the lock, stick a recycling logo on their so they thing it's empty plastic bags and food slops.

That's only going to last until one of them sees the thing being used, and at that point all bets are off.
