$800 bike rest !!

Sure, this does look a little better than a metal hook, but would someone really pay this money? Even I wouldn't be this extravagant [embarassed]

That's $800 Australian. What is it, $19.99 US?   [poke]  [big grin]

LoL ..

The thing that got me about it was really that it's not that special or that clever ... for a hefty price. Many top spec bikes these days have a compact frame and that means a sloping top tube and that's just not going to sit right with this design.

I have 8 bikes, all of them are very expensive and only 2 could sit on this rest.

If there's really a market for this sort of thing, I'd love to see a bunch of Foggers capitalise on it.
