Stylish bike racks for display?

So what if I can’t ride a bicycle?  I can still enjoy nice bike racks right?  =P

I have a preference for wall hung racks (since space is a luxury in Singapore) as you can probably tell from the list below, but my criteria for the list is just anything that I think I would consider buying IF I actually have a bike. Or possibly to use as reference if I wanna get a carpenter to customise instead… I like those that can double as a nice display piece, sort of like a wall art and all the better if the racks are practical as well. Obviously the type of bike I had in mind is one of those expensive high-end fancy bike that you would like to show off and to keep in the house in case of bicycle thieves.

Quite a range of racks below ranging from those that costs about $50, to those that goes into 4 figs (yeah, I was shocked too).  Originally I was really aiming only for 10 bike racks to feature (“Top 10 Bike Racks” had a nice ring to it), but ended up with 18 instead.  Rather than splitting this feature into two posts, here are all 18 racks for your viewing pleasure.

Anyway, that’s it. I won’t even think about having a list for bikes since I can’t ride.  Hey, don’t laugh. It’s pretty normal for Singaporean ladies not to know how to ride a bike…

Lots more pics/close-ups at the end of the list. Enjoy!
