U.W.S. Base is an intelligent system that goes beyond the mere concept of order and puts the bike in the deserved center. The flexible assembly is designed for room heights from 220 cm up to 350 cm - from the basement to the garage and preferably directly in the apartment. The basic construction consists of two halves of round wood, which are pushed apart in opposite directions and fixed to the respective room height with mounting rods. After fine adjustment with threaded screws, with which the U.W.S. Base must be firmly spread on the ceiling and floor, the assembly is finished.

The individualization and modular extension by e.g. a storage table or additional storage bars is possible at any time. U.W.S. Base is made of oak wood and is available oiled as well as in black and fluorescent orange. And when the bike is not in parking position, U.W.S. Base can also be used as an ordinary coat rack. However, Urban Wood Systems assumes no liability for jealous bikes.
