The bicyclick is made up of two parts which vary slightly depending on your setup. There is a wall mount, a mountain bike version, and a street cycle version.
The Bicyclick is made of hard plastic with metal screws for assembly. The plastic is strong and can hold up to some abuse which is important for riders like me who, let’s just say, need to wear a helmet. I did a couple experimental drops of my bike with the Bicyclick installed to test it’s durability. No damage was done when dropped on dirt or grass. A small piece chipped off when dropped on cement but the part remained functional.
The Bicyclick works as advertised. You can connect two bikes nearly anywhere. Bikes of different heights can still connect though must be relatively close in height or else the bikes will lean on too steep an angle and fall over. The click base is a nice alternative for those who need to park the their bike indoors. I know many people who park their bike in apartment buildings or offices, the click base would allow them to place the bike in a designated spot, protect their walls, and prevent it getting knocked over regularly by pets or small children.
The Bicyclick doesn’t completely replace traditional kickstands. If you find yourself a single rider with no click base then your going to need to resort back to trees, walls, or the ground to rest your bike. With that said, I do prefer the subtlety of the Bicyclick to a clunky bike stand and will use it mainly at the office and my garage to keep my bike from getting knocked around by the activity that surrounds it.
