  • excellent! this made my day! i carry my racing bike up and down 78 steps of stairs (yes, i’ve counted) every weekday and it’s annoying not getting the necessary grip to find balance and enough lift to avoid the wheels hitting the stairs. i don’t know if it’s made from wood because of studio`s name or vice versa, but leather would be my choice of material for my vintage racing bike i think. lovely peugeot in the pic btw.

    you should take this further. perhaps go metal or plastic, attached on one end only, the seat or down tube, with a pivot allowing it to lay flat when not in use. and allow for different angles to find right balance for perfect climbing or descending of stairs. the handle itself could even be a (removable) micro bicycle pump, making the lifting function a welcome addition to an item most active cyclists already carry.

    either way, love your solution. best of luck!

  • You’re doing it wrong, you should be riding your bicycle, not carrying it.
