Rangeley Morton is a furniture builder and a cyclist, so it was only a matter of time before both passions began to inform each other. One such effort is the Post, a handmade, collapsable, bicycle rack, best suited at home or in a shop. This unique design was inspired by classic tools, while ironically, no tools are needed to assemble Post.
Post’s arms and legs are locked in place with sailing twine threaded through a removable brass pipe. Simply tie a knot… Designed to work with everything from a MTB to a classic road frame, Post only requires a top tube to hold and display your bike.
Each Post is signed, numbered and retails for $450 – simply email to order. See a quote about Post from Rangeley Morton below, along with more photos.

I like the looks and body language of this bike. The Ritte Ace is taking over the road racing lineup, utilizing true one-piece monocoque construction, positive molding with a T700/T1000 Carbon Layup and integrated Di2 or mechanical cabling setups. Because bigger is better, the Ace will also fit 25mm – 28mm tires, depending on rim width and manufacturer’s specs.
Not everything is new with the Ace, however. Ritte adopted the geometry from their Vlaanderen model for familiar handling. See more specs and photos below.
