Clutter. The life of any endurance athlete usually involves loads of clutter. We gather gear that would make any hoarder proud.
Now, there are worst things to gather, and some are fairly easy to store. Take shoes for instance, you can fit a boatload in a closet. Close the door, problem solved. Same goes for hoodies, sweats and t-shirts. But, what about bikes?
Sure, sure there are some people that actually believe that one bike is enough. But, we all know how disillusioned those individuals are. But, the problem of storing our bikes still exists. I for one, think that the living room is probably the best place to keep my bikes, certainly not the shed! But, my wife may differ in opinion here, so I was tasked with finding a solution.
I turned to the intrawebs and came across http://www.getclug.com/ . On their site they boast that it is”the world’s smallest bike rack”, well this sound perfect. But, let’s see how they measure up.
The check out process was quick and painless, the shipping… not so much. It took over three weeks to arrive, which is a bit long considering the listed address is only a three hour drive from me. But, alas like so many other providers the production is not done on site so shipping came from gods who knows.
When they mention that this thing is small.. they ain’t kidding. Arriving in a padded legal envelope, everything you need is contained in on little box. It can’t measure more then 2 inches by 2 inches. Specs aside, they did a fantastic job on the package.
So, would I recommend getting a Clug? I guess, it depends… I think it is a lot of money for such a little device, but it seems to do the trick. Still, if it retailed for $15 instead of $25 I think that the recommendation would be that much easier.
