    I am in love with this but wonder about the humidity here in Texas getting inside and eventually causing damage to the bike. How much does it weigh and how many bikes can it fit? Knowing the price would help also.

      Great questions, Susan. I will get in touch with the manufacturer and find out the scoop and get back to you.

      Hi Susan,
      I appreciate your interest in ALPEN and your inquiry about humidity. The Bike Capsule is waterproof, but is designed to breath, so not entirely water tight. We consider storing a bike in a Bike Capsule to be similar to storing it in a shed or non-conditioned garage in terms of humidity. However, we are considering offering an integrated dehumidifier that runs on solar power. In my experience, most rust comes from a bike being put away wet, rather than from ambient moisture in the air, but then again I do not live in Texas, so I suppose prolonged exposure even in a garage could result in superficial rust. I would not expect any rust on a bike that is used regularly, well maintained and put away dry. Please feel free to email me directly if you want to discuss further.
      Cheers,
      Eric Pearson
      Founder & CEO
