Is this good design?

I keep seeing the weirdest things on the bike rack in front of the Industrial Design building here at Auburn. I’m not sure what exactly is going on here and I caught myself immediately dismissing this as nonsense. However, upon reflection I’m willing to concede that this could be a prototype for an ergonomically improved [...]
