Bike storage quickly becomes a headache for anyone with a surplus of bikes or a shortage of space at home. Which, let’s face it, is most of us. I know all too well, because my household currently has five bikes of assorted varieties clogging up our hallway and living room, most of which are mine…

Clug is a tiny clip designed to store and secure your bike that’s currently fundraising on Kickstarter. Created by Hurdler Studios in Vancouver, Clug is a delightfully simple solution to the problem. Your bike’s tyre is held in place by a u-shaped plastic clip which is then mounted to a wall (or a tree, if you’re that way inclined).

Because it’s so small, you’ll need to one or both wheels of your bike rested on the floor, but the upside is a similarly tiny price-point.

And if you’ve got the right kind of 3D printer, you can even buy Clug’s digital blueprint and print your own at home. I wonder how long it will be until 3D printed bikes become commonplace?
