Cactus Tongue Bike Holders

View all 5 Photos

We often take the time to highlight those who work so hard to bring good design fundamentals to the world of bicycling, for both urban commutes and off-roading. But it’s important to always remember that good design must extend to every facet of a product, transforming it from a material possession to an extension of a lifestyle. That is why it is a pleasure to present the Cactus Tongue bike holder from Taylor Biddle Design.

Made with care in Britain, the Cactus Tongue seeks to reinvent the utilitarian solutions to bike storage that have had a caustic hold of the market for so long.

Made with care in Britain, the Cactus Tongue seeks to reinvent the utilitarian solutions to bike storage that have had a caustic hold of the market for so long. As bikes become more recognized as the beautiful machines that they are, the Cactus Tongue helps show off these designs in a way that is clean and easy. A wonderfully simple product made from a single piece of bent steel, the Cactus Tongue attaches to any wall with only two fixing screws, providing supportive arms that can support almost any style of bike frame and up to 20 kg (44 lbs.). The way each bike hangs from the rack will playfully vary based on the angle of its crossbar, but also gives the option to rack a bike by its handlebars or the seat post (if horizontal space is limited). The home version of the wall mount features stitched leather contact pads, while a public version features holes through which a standard bike lock can be looped. And for the truly avid biker, Taylor Biddle Design also offers a freestanding Cactus Tongue Tree, which can hold up to 6 bikes. The Cactus Tongue collection lets bikers display their rides rather than simply storing them, is exemplary of Taylor Biddle’s design philosophy that “anything functional can also be beautiful – and if it is both, it becomes a loved and cherished possession.”
