  • Cool idea. I’m sure its still plenty of room for the umbrella even if you cant use the few inches in the front. Its also no problem riding a bike on beach if you ride close to the water, you can even do it with normal bikes. Love the idea about renting it as a kit at hotels, riding it down to the beach and maybe ride along the water looking for a good spot.

  • Treads are only for wicking away water when a tire rolls on a wet, hard pavement. There is actually better grip and friction with a treadless tire, especially on sand or grass.

  • A clever idea and concept. I agree that it can be developed further, but I am loving the quirky originality of it!
