Slinky?

This newly installed bike stand at a local school reminds me of the old slinky toys (do they still make them?) only a lot more colourful. This was a cool but sunny day so not many kids rode their bikes on this day. The stand goes well with the seating they have installed around the trees too!

I love this one! And I'm sure it appeals to the kids too. :)

Great idea for a bike rack, much better looking than the usual metal type.

The colors are bright and cheerful as they should be! Well-coordinated with the benches, too. Some imaginative folks designed this.

I do believe I just saw some slinkys the other day! And this stand certainly looks like an adult version of the toy! Great colors!

What a great idea, give some color to a mundane object. I like the benches too. And test - it sure does look like a slinky.

Yes, you are right about the slinky toy. I haven't seen one in a long time. These are some very cool bike stands.

Oh yes, it certainly does look like a slinky. I don't have one any longer but I did and love it.
