Perhaps it folds out?


If you look at the seatpost you see that it sticks out quite a bit. I think it's possible to pedal as normal with this thing. The surfboard idea sounds as a good one.


Folg is quite right, it dows stick out quite a bit, and would allow pedalling - the angle of the shot didn't quite make it clear.


It could be a new anti-theft device to slow down snatch and ride thefts.


It appears to have a quick release just under the seat, if that's the case , then all he (she?) has to do is slacken the clamp , and swing the rack out a tad.


Also noted the fact it seems to clear the pedal ... the padding made me wonder if it was for carrying something like a Bass Violin or something semi-fragile. Surfboard is as good an explanation as any to me :)


I've seen bike-racks like that in Wellington, carrying surfboards.

Yeah, it's definitely a surf board rack - we get them here too:
