Re: bike parking for residential buildings
- This thought just came to me: if you want to provide a really nice
amenity for the tenants with bikes, provide a small, cleared area in
the bike cage for tire inflation. An air hose would come out of the
side of the building, allowing residents to inflate bike tires in seconds.
The only caveat: you'd want a belt-driven air compressor, which would
run several hundred dollars. Direct-drive air compressors are quite
loud. The compressor could go anywhere in the building; most likely in
the nearest utility room.
