The Hide-A-Ride system is similar to the Stowaway system that we reported on before Christmas, but instead of using a system of pulleys to lift your bike up above your head, relies on your brute strength to push it up and hook it around the hardware on the ceiling. A perfect excuse to by a lighter bike to use with it, eh?

As an added bonus, the Hide-A-Ride doubles as a bike maintenance stand, holding your bike up directly in front of you to allow for easy maintenance. It also includes a cable lock which will give you a bit of extra security if you’re storing your bikes in your garage.

Hide-A-Ride is currently seeking $12,000 (£8,435) in crowdfunding through Kickstarter, with a $168 (£118) investment being enough to secure you one of the first of the systems to roll off the production line. Providing the $12,000 target is met, then the system will start shipping from June this year.
