About Allen Bike Racks
Began out of founder Dick Allen’s garage in 1967, Allen Sports is committed to producing the best-quality, best possible-to-use bike, parking, and storage racks available on the market. Dick Allen, a onetime aerospace engineer, opened Allen Sports after building a prototype bike carrier in his Lincoln, Massachusetts, shop in his free time. The bike enthusiast tested the trunk-mounted carrier–made of electrical conduit, metal strapping, and fire hose casings (for padding)–on weekend excursions. In a while afterward, Allen took his design to consumers, moving from local to national sales by 1971. These days, the corporate owns more than three dozen patents and operates three warehouses nationally, two factories out of the country, and sells products in additional than a dozen countries around the globe.
