[Image taken 9.5.21] York St John University, De Grey Street, York. These seem like a modern take on the old fashioned long discredited ‘wheelbenders’. The only contact with the rack is the wheel – could a heavy cycle fall and buckle the wheel? Damage a cycle next to it? On each visit, every user has to lift their cycle in on arrival and out on leaving. With a Sheffield (unless they are of the toastrack design - see: #165414 - with a linking rail that is proud of the ground) you roll your cycle in and out. Sheffields are more accessible for everyone including people with mobility issues, strength limitations, a heavy cycle… I would not be able to use this design – my cycle has front racks. They are also very close together. Further, because the ends have the dedicated slots there is no option to label this as a space for longer or wider cycles – see: #165049 - or for a family sharing a lock.
