Brand new cycle parking stands of a type quite popular in Assen, Netherlands.

These are not the best variety as they don't also have a loop to tie to the frame. However, this is a low crime area and few people bother to lock their frames.

These are much more convenient than Sheffield stands as they prevent the front wheel from flopping and keep the bike upright leaving both sides unobstructed.

As a result, you can load up panniers on both sides of your bike before unlocking and riding off.

Because they grip a good part of the circumference of the wheel they do not work as "wheel benders".

There are a few Sheffields in the city, but they are generally left empty.
