New cycling product hoping to snap up backers on Kickstarteraccessories . hack
There’s an interesting new product that’s been recently added to Kickstarter. Cycle Snap is a simple idea for parking your bicycle.
Apart from the quick and easy setup and ease of use, their main focus seems to be the space savings that the Cycle Snap provides when use vertically. Bicycles are awkward things and I can definitely see the benefit of using Cycle Snaps in this way.
My suggestion to the would be to possibly offer an add-on or additional product to protect the wall from the (inevitably dirty) back wheel. I thought they making a huge mistake by only offering sizes based on fatter tyres but on further investigation, it seems road and hybrid wheels will be catered for as well.
Their website claims Cycle Snap Original comfortably fits most bikes between 16”-29” with tire widths of 1.75″ – 2.25” and comes with a lifetime guarantee. Cycle Snap Road Bike and Hybrid editions are coming soon.
With 20 days to go, they’ve received just under $700.00 of their $15,000.00 goal so hopefully they’ll get a big push towards the end.
It’s a decent idea and if you’ve ever struggled to find a way to park your bike(s) in a way that a) doesn’t get in the way of everyone and b) they won’t fall over at the slightest touch, this could be an answer to those problems.
Good luck to them!
Hi and welcome! I hope you find this site interesting and helpful. If you're wondering about the name, I chose “The Optimistic Cyclist” because not matter how old I get, I still believe I can go faster than I did 10 years ago :-D Gianni
