Bike Arc was founded by Joseph Bellomo and Jeff Selzer in 2008. Jeff Selzer is the General Manager of Palo Alto Bicycles in downtown Palo Alto, California. Joseph Bellomo, a California licensed architect, is the owner of Joseph Bellomo Architects, Inc. in Palo Alto, California founded in 1986. In 2008 Bellomo and Selzer worked together on the Palo Alto Bikestation at the Caltrain depot. Bike Arc is patented in both the United States and in Europe (Office for Harmonization In the Internal Market).
The Bike Arc contains multiple iterations of the same fundamental concept: a modular structure of steel arcs. The Bike Arc family includes the Rac Arc, the Half Arc, the Umbrella Arc, the Tube Arc, the Car Arc, the Bus Arc, the House Arc, and the Ad Arc.
