here's what looks like a great solution to a problem i can identify with. lifting your bike up stairs is always a bit awkward whatever frame you have, and can result in serious injury if something goes wrong.
the bicycle frame handle, designed by walnut studiolo, allows you to lift your bike safely, easily and ergonomically. it got it's funding through kickstarter, something i've mentioned a few times before, making more than five times it's target amount of $3500 a few weeks ago.
it looks like a great product, i hope they become available in shops in the uk. in the meantime, you can get them for $38 direct from walnut studiolo.
