The CycleRest came into existence 2 years ago via Keith Sutter. While preparing for a triathlon, he realized that transporting his bike on the outside of his vehicle left it vulnerable to damage. Showing off his prototype to friends, he saw that others coveted it. Doing some research made him realize that there was nothing like it on the market, and the CycleRest was born.
Keeping in mind that serious cyclists are willing to spend thousands of dollars on bikes, the CycleRest crew chose to meet that unmet need–how to keep one’s bike from damage while hauling it around. Driving through blizzards and blistering hot sun are no problem with the CycleRest. Rest assured that your baby will not be injured if you choose a tight parking spot a la San Francisco. And while it can not hold any thru-axles yet, CycleRest has a thru-axle design on the drawing board. So, if you’re not rolling old-school with an quick-release like me, rest assured downhillers, that your $5000 baby will be cradled securely soon in your vehicle!
