[Image taken 18.2.23] York St John University, off Clarence Street, York. [NOTE: No street view at this location] The racks are double barred – permitting many locking options. The parallel structure presumably gives strength… to support a cycle and to withstand vandalism including to the bars themselves but also to the locks in use. However, you can see from this angle the cycles can only roll in so far. They are obstructed by the perimeter of the enclosure. I thought I would struggle to use these. I need to be able to roll my cycle sufficiently far forward to rest my pannier on the rack. If my pannier protrudes from the rear the cycle is unstable. Compare with the position of the cycles here: #191251 and the spacing of the same racks (without the cycles): #166711. However, when I asked someone returning to collect her cycle – she attached a pannier on one side, the nearest side, before unlocking it, she said they worked for her. Better than the Sheffields on the other side. Other image today and links: #191137.
