Tidy Tent Bike Cave Use In The Garden Or Whilst Camping New Improved Material Includes Protective Hood and an additional zip across the bottom of the door panel
Back again for 2021 with even more improvements, it now has a sewn-in PE groundsheet and two adjustable ventilation flaps in the roof to reduce internal condensation.
Tidy Tent have enhanced the design, having listened carefully to customer feedback over many years. First thing to note is that they’ve changed the fabric to a new heavy duty, woven plastic material. This is much tougher than the previous polyester material. It’s made of a woven, rip-resistant polyethylene (PE), a high grade tarpaulin-like material which is both durable and waterproof. Fundamentally the size, shape and appearance remains the same, so that the rain just rolls off.
They have also now incorporated an additional PE “second skin” roof hood, which fits over the top of the main cover and hooks onto the eyelets along the arch shaped sides. A draw string nylon guy line allows it to be tightened and optionally can be pegged down for additional stability in high winds. This new fly sheet or “roof hood” not only makes the Bike Cave more waterproof but also extends the lifetime of the product.
Another improvement is that they have also changed the shape of the door panel. The new door panel shape makes it easier to zip and unzip without snagging. Even though the door shape has been modified, the Bike Cave is still modular. If you want to increase the depth of your bike cover you can still extend its size by purchasing and attaching a new style tidy Tent Xtra
The base has also changed from from a plastic groundsheet to a tough mesh floor panel. This improves air circulation to reduce internal condensation and allows any water ingress to quickly drain away.
Finally, you’ll also find they’ve incorporated an additional foldaway groundsheet extension strip along the front edge. It can sometimes be difficult to zip or unzip the door panel with one hand when you’re trying to hold onto your bike with the other. So, by placing your foot on this handy new “tread strip” you can create more tension in the fabric making it easier to use the zip with one hand. It also makes for a neater edge and reduces the risk of damage to the product when mowing the lawn. If you prefer not to use it, no problem, just tuck it underneath out of the way.
As with any tent structure, dependent upon the extent of inclement weather, there can sometimes be a small amount of ingress of rain water or condensation. Should this occur, the mesh groundsheet is designed to allow any water ingress to drain away quickly and effectively.
Please note there is a limit to how much weight the bike tent’s fibreglass rods can withstand. The product really should not be used in snow. It is certainly not designed to withstand heavy snowfall.
If you do use in snow then clear the snow off regularly to keep snow build-up to a minimum. Damage to the product as a result of use in snow is not covered by warranty.
Please also note that over time it is possible that the fabric of your bike tent may fade in sunlight. Please note: this product is manufactured from a durable, hardwearing plastic however we make no guarantee as to the longevity of the product since wear and tear will vary very significantly depending on installation method, Ultra Violet (UV) exposure, temperature variation etc.
You must maintain your Bike Cave by regularly spraying or coating the fabric with a proprietary UV protective and waterproofing tent spray. We recommend Fabsil Universal Protector
