  • Great - Has a non-grill rack (or other wheel bender) and sheltered makes it great.
  • Good - Has a non-grill rack (or other wheel bender)
  • Poor - Presence of grill rack or other wheel bender style will immediately give poor quality rating. Grill racks are weak and inefficient use of space.
  • Quantity - Indicates the number of bike parking spaces. The City of Chicago has an officially recognized number of spaces for the racks it uses.

Notes

Racks

This section should be (nearly) identical to Bike parking at grocery and convenience stores in Chicago. Some changes have been made because this is the suburban page.

The quality of the rack should be judged by 1) its ability to lock at least one wheel on the bike and its frame; 2) the security it provides.

  • Grill rack - Round tube (no security); only bolted enough to prevent from sliding around.
  • Bollard rack - Round tubes (usually solid, though); bolt type and method varies.
  • Chicago U-rack - 2 spaces. These are bolted to the ground with mushroom head spikes. They are drilled almost 4 inches into concrete; the only way to remove them is to sever their heads (all 6-8 of them).
  • Wave rack
    • Narrow - The distance between vertical tubes is narrow, making it difficult to lock one's bike when a bike is already locked here
    • Chicago wave racks - The distance between vertical tubes is wide, making it easy to lock one's bike when a bike is already locked here
      • A3 - 4 spaces, 2 humps.
      • A5 - 6 spaces, 3 humps.
