Bike Stand

Is there just one or are there more around?
Anyone knows who designed it?

Just Another "I'm Moving to Portland" Post!

I can only image how many new members post the same types of questions, but I wanted to post my own in hopes of getting some quality feedback. Thanks so much for taking the time to read/help out.
