The Bike Cave from Bronte Tools
It can't have escaped your notice that in recent decades there has been a clear trend to build smaller and smaller houses. More and more people have been converting their lofts and garages to gain additional accommodation space. Our modern consumer lifestyle however, continues to tempt us with more and more 'latest must have' products, and increasingly domestic storage is becoming a major problem for many of us.
Our sheds and garages are crammed full – so where to put that new patio furniture, the new barbecue set, that new bicycle you just bought to get fit? The options are either to build another shed – costly, difficult to erect and time-consuming. Or, buy one of those increasingly popular plastic garden storage boxes – cheaper, but still costly and also for many items just too small.
'The Bike Cave' is simple and practical. Suitable for virtually any climate, the distinctive arched profile allows rain and snow simply to run off, keeping the Tidy Tent's contents safe and dry.
he uses that this product can be put to are limited only by the user’s imagination...wheeled barbecue sets, prams, pushchairs, wheelchairs, lawnmowers, scooters, garden furniture, bedding plants, children’s garden toys, tools, logs, bicycles - the list goes on and on!
Currently available in one size only & it provides an impressive internal storage capacity (large enough for two adult bicycles) and packs away to a small, compact bundle requiring minimum storage space
Construction and materials used
The Bike Cave is manufactured from Nylon Polyester PP – a quality fabric that is tough and durable, hardwearing and easy to clean. Recent field trials have shown that the material accommodates various printing processes and techniques favourably and shows no sign of colour degradation when exposed to prolonged bright sunlight. The Nylon Polyester PP fabric combined with the flexible fibre-glass rod chassis, have been specifically chosen to provide a lightweight storage solution with added benefits in retail storage and consumer product transportation.
Designed to be quick and easy to install, the Tidy Tent has a detachable zipped front panel providing the owner with the choice of having the front open or closed – very useful in the summer months when rainfall is less prevalent and access is required frequently.
The Bike Cave can be installed in a wide variety of locations against walls and fences. The outer edge of the rear panel has 5 fixing points. Simply connect the main fibreglass rods and slide through two sleeves in the nylon/polyester fabric, inserting the ends into the “feet” in the base panel. Next place the 5 smaller rods into the eyelets in the front and rear panels to stretch the 2 arcs apart. Finally drill up to 5 holes and screw the back panel secure.
A number of weight bags are included as standard. These can be filled with sand or pebbles and placed along the edges of the ground sheet inside to prevent the wind from blowing underneath. The recommended installation, however is to carefully place a number of old paving slabs or wooden blocks over the groundsheet to provide a more permanent and robust solution.
