 +====== Double deck bike racks ======
 +//Someone asked me my opinion about using double deck bike racks in their building design.//
 +
 +I don't recommend the bike racks from Palmer Group.
 +Most people use the lower level. The upper level racks in the center are difficult to access.

 +
 +Use the one CDOT has at the Millennium Park Bike Station. They are from Josta, a German company.

 +You can go to the bike station and walk in with a bike and try it out.
 +
 +Although, Dero has their own now, called the Dero Decker:
 +http://www.dero.com/products/dero-decker/
 +They're based in Minneapolis.
 +You should ask them if there are any local installations that you can try out.
 +
 +Both the Josta and the Dero have an assist mechanism so it's easier for people to use the top level.
 +Portland State University tested four designs because they were going to install some (they might have already).
