The TidyTent is manufactured from Nylon Polyester PP – a quality fabric that is tough and durable, hardwearing and easy to clean. Our field trials have shown that the material accommodates various printing processes and techniques favourably and shows no sign of colour degradation when exposed to prolonged bright sunlight. The Nylon Polyester PP fabric combined with the flexible fibre-glass rod chassis, have been specifically chosen to provide a lightweight storage solution with added benefits in retail storage and consumer product transportation. Designed to be quick and easy to install, the TidyTent has a detachable zipped front panel providing the owner with the choice of having the front open or closed - very useful in the summer months when rainfall is less prevalent and access is required frequently. The TidyTent can be installed in a wide variety of locations against walls and fences. The outer edge of the rear panel has 5 fixing points. Simply connect the main fibreglass rods and slide through two sleeves in the nylon/polyester fabric, inserting the ends into the “feet” in the base panel. Next place the 5 smaller rods into the eyelets in the front and rear panels to stretch the 2 arcs apart. Finally drill up to 5 holes and screw the back panel secure. A number of weight bags are included as standard. These can be filled with sand or pebbles and placed along the edges of the ground sheet inside to prevent the wind from blowing underneath. The recommended installation, however is to carefully place a number of old paving slabs or wooden blocks over the groundsheet to provide a more permanent and robust solution. • Low cost • Lightweight - easy to carry and transport • Packs away to a small compact size • Storage capacity big enough for two adult bicycles • Hardwearing and durable fabric • Arched shape allows rain and snow simply to slide off • Multi-functional and versatile • Detachable front cover • Quick and easy to erect • Suitable as either a permanent or temporary fixture • Optional security bracket
Rated 1 out of 5 by IrishColly In my wheelie bin after 1.5 years
I bought this product in my local bike shop in March 2012. It simply rotted to bits. The metal pieces rusted and the fabric was like paper in the end.
Great idea as I posted on my FB page at time, however the material used is not designed for long term use outside in the British isles climate in my opinion.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Had this for two years now. The fabric is so thin that when i got this, i though it wont last a month, but not a single rip! In our winter temps! Zipper also works still(knock on wood!). Only complain is that tent have lost its color allmost completely. So it looks like bag of something...

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Looks nice, poor quality
I bought two of these as a practical alternative to keeping your bikes under bike covers.
They were easy to set up, but the short 'side' fibreglass poles just don't have what it takes to make this a durable product, as both tents soon had broken poles even though both tents were standing on a flat concrete surface.
The zips aren't great quality either, and were really sticky in a short time.
A great idea ruined by two poor quality components - the zip and the poles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Very unique. Works great.
Some complain that it's not terribly rugged. This is a tent and like any tent is not going to stand up in a great storm. If you need a shed then buy a shed. But if you live in a nice climate as I do then this is perfect. Well made and a great option.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Could not withstand strong winds
I thought this would be a perfect solution to storing two bikes in my garden, was certainly plenty space for the bikes and looked fairly good in the garden. Unfortunately after surviving the Scottish "Hurricane Bawbag" intact, it has not survived the next lot of winds. It has ripped leaving the part which was secured to the fence still secured and the rest in tatters. It may be that our garden was very exposed or the Scottish weather is just too much for it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Anonymous Nice idea but terrible execution
This is the second of these products that I have bought and the zip has broken easily on both occasions. On the bright side, it keeps your bike dry and is very easy to put up. The downside is that the zip is poorly made and the overall design of the zip is terrible. I won't be buying another one and I would strongly consider other options before buying this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous muy util
He adquirido este articulo hace meses y estoy muy contento con el, la instalacion no es tan simple como dicen, pero luego muy fiable y util. Tiene algunos fallos en los remates de las costuras y los tiradores de las cremalleras no son buenos.Es muy amplia y estanca.Para que ocupe menos se le pueden retirar las varillas transversales superiores y recoger cuerda con el mosqueton.Actualmente debido a problemas de espacio la he colocado en la terraza de un piso y caben hasta 3-4 bicis de carretera bien colocadas o 3 de montaña , ademas de un amplio espacio superior para guardar el casco , herramientas , ruedas, etc.Resumen: muy util, estanca, facil de limpiar, espaciosa.Pero: costuras y remates no muy buenos, cremalleras delicadas, varillas transversales muy rigidas, bolsa de transporte y guardado de mala calidad.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Cremallera
La tienda es una buena idea. Un poco alta para guardar solo bicis. Pero la cremallera se ve de mala calidad y para exterior es muy justa, ha tardado un año en romperse la cremallera, aunque desde el principio empezo a dar problemas al cerrar y abrir.
Si mejoran la cremallera (sobre todo para exterior) es un buen producto
