"This new recycled plastic rack is so completely useless because the plastic bars are so thick I can't put my U-Lock around them and my frame, and the side diagonal posts are also too thick. In addition, you can't even put your wheel over the top because they've put the sponsor sign on top preventing me from getting that part close to my frame between my front wheel and down tube.
Obviously nice to have so many sponsors, but apparently none of them ride a bike and have tried to lock a bike to such a rack. It's so sad to see such effort being put into something so useless. Are people so desperate to use recycled plastic they have to create things so obviously not useful for that material? Yes, this is Bethesda, but I'm still not willing to leave my bike (back wheel shown) unlocked. I ended up having to go across the parking lot and locking my bike to a sign post about car parking."
