    Oh, so they're saying he wouldn't be able to get close enough to the supercharger to plug in with the bike on the back?
    That sucks. The stations really should have longer cords.

    Person was still a jerk for not staying with vehicle while taking up three spots. I was able to see the bike rack attachment in the wild though, looks great;)

    I have seen pictures of SCs where you park front first, with the tower at the left rear of the parking slot. Would this not be a better solution as a universal approach?

    This stuff will shake out in time but I suspect there may be reports of fist fights breaking out before the dust settles.

    Moral of the story here is be nice and courteous to others and stay with the car if your parking is questionable.

    the hazard of this style setup is more superchargers being hit. I pipe bollard would help though.

    and it seems the currently built superchargers are doing at least one end station like this which is still up on the curb/landscape island, so much more protected the the image above.
