The Pit-In is a drive-in desk for bikes
Imagine, if you will, cycling to work. Imagine further that you ride straight into the cargo elevator and clank your way slowly up to the office, sitting astride your ride. Now, as the doors whirr open, you still don’t dismount. Instead, you ride past your astonished, jealous and frankly awed co-workers straight to your desk. Still you are in the saddle, and — dammit — you’re going to stay there.
You brake, skidding the rear wheel across the cheap nylon carpet, and enter the cubicle. In there, you roll easily into your Pit-In desk, sliding the front wheel through the large slot. You place your feet firmly on each of the two raised platforms, lift your hands from the handlebars to your keyboard and relax onto the yielding leather surface of your Brooks saddle, ready to start the day.
This dream could be reality if you could somehow secure a copy of the Pit-In from the Store Muu design studio, a desk made to be used while sitting on your bike. Made from plywood and measuring 71×90x115cm, the Pit-In probably won’t find its way into your office, but it would make a pretty cool outdoor table at a bike-themed bar.
I think its fantastic, and I’m thinking of making my own, if only as a way to trick the Lady into letting me keep my bike in the apartment. Bonus: at 1 meter 15cm high, it could double as a great standing desk.
