Design a Product: Bike Lift&Carry | MAKO Design + Invent

The Bike Lift&Carry, for the Urban Cyclist

September 8, 2014

A lot of people are moving into large city centers like Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver but don’t enjoy relying on public transit to get around. Instead, they utilize the comprehensive bike lance system for exercise as well as convenience.

But what if you need to take the subway or carry your bike up or down a set of stairs while shopping or sightseeing? Some bikes are large and clunky while some may just simply be too heavy to carry for the needed length of time. Have you ever wished for an easier way to carry your bike around? Henry Teterin from Kiev, Ukraine, went through the product development process to design a product to answer that wish. Called the Bike Lift&Carry, it allows you to easily lift and carry your bicycle or e-bike as if it were a shoulder bag.

The Bike Lift&Carry has been featured in or on the following publications sites:

The New Age
London Cyclist
Dezeen magazine
WomenIdeass and many more.

Key Features

Key features are important when you design a product. The key features for the Bike Lift&Carry are that you can put it away in seconds, its conformable on the shoulder, that it easily holds up to 70 pounds, and that it fits most seat post tubes. This product is a clear demonstration of the power of product development!

The Bike Lift&Carry is great and simple idea. The Kickstarter still has 16 days to go. Show Henry your support by making a pledge HERE.
