Each unit is made of 1/4" x 1-1/2" reinforced flat bar steel and 1/2" steel rods. Galvanized after fabrication, each model weighs in at approx. 15 lbs. The Maximin has a rotatable locking mechanism together with a support system ensuring that both wheels of a bicycle, as well as the bicycle frame, are quickly yet securely locked to the supporting stand.
A key feature of the rack is the arrangement of steel bars, rods and tubes that, when used in conjunction with popular bicycle U-locks, make theft of a bicycle extremely difficult. Depending on the manner in which a U-lock is attached, a thief must cut through three or more such steel bars, rods and/or tubes before the bicycle can be removed, and even then the U-lock remains engaged on the bicycle to prevent it's use.
