Sainsburys Bike Stands Sorted

Sainsburys bike stands sorted
These cycle stands at Sainsbury's Selly Oak were in an excellent location, but located too close to the wall, which meant cycles could only be locked up with the back wheel at the curved end of the stand. This meant there was nothing to support the bike whilst strapping on panniers loaded with heavy shopping, so bikes would often very suddenly twist and slide down the stand. Once in that position, it would be very difficult to right the bike. Following complaints to Sainsbury's by Push Bikes members, the stands have been moved away from the wall, much to the delight of the two people in the photo, Pete and Helen, who were unaware of the back-story. Thanks to Pete for the loan of his phone to take the photo, and for emailing it to Push Bikes.
