| REVIEW: Bike storage Endo...

Today I have decided to finish installing the vertical bike storage we received a few months ago, our little living room is a mess and it needed serious decluttering. I have ordered the Cycloc Endo after researching online for a while about the most minimalist and efficient bike rack solutions, and ended up choosing this one; it's a simple yet very smart Award-winning design.
The installation is pretty straight forward and does not require too many tools, there are only 4 screws/anchors and you can use the packaging as a drilling template, which is very practical. Drill, screw and tadaaa it's done. I really like the discreet hollow hinge in which you could slide your bike lock, clever! There is also a rear pad included that you can stick to the wall.
It works really well and we are happy with the result, the blue color contrasts nicely with our orange wall and having the bikes stored vertically definitely helps declutter our entrance.
  • CONS:
- Not a lot of problems so far, it's a great product but it comes at a nice price too, there is a weight limit of 13kg to hang your bikes freely and a maximum payload limit of 20kg. You can certainly find other solutions at a lower price depending on what you are looking for and your storage space.
  • PROS:
- 7 different bright colors to choose from. Stylish, convenient and smart design with a solid and light composite construction. It works great for us!

| Outdoor Adventure Show 2017...

WOW we are almost there once again, the Outdoor Adventure Show in Montreal. Please come by to see us at the Jumana Boards booth (#729) this WE to discover the new collection with many more awesome models, improved materials and brand new graphics.
I have designed all the boards in collaboration with the Jumana's team this year as well as establish the new art direction for their line of products. It's a really fun project because I have the chance to try a few ideas and also test those boards myself, yummy! This is also great as it brings me back to my industrial design roots.
This year's models have plenty of cool improvements, notably a stronger, stiffer and lighter pre-laminated dropstitch PVC and double-stringers with Dyneema reinforcements. We've also added Clickfins to the mix which I am definitely super excited about.
I'll be demoing the new boards in the cold pool Saturday and Sunday, you're welcome to come and support me :) See you there!
