Urbancyclo, is a UK startup with a fresh take on how to efficiently store bikes, particularly in small spaces. The design promises to reduce the width of the bike by up to 80%, and will allow the user to rotate the handlebars up to 90° in either direction. Twist past the break to see how…
The Quicktwist seems to be a good alternative to storing one’s bike without carrying a pesky 4-5mm wrench around. Or, at the very least, having to labor through pulling it out of a pocket. After a quick release is opened, the collar slides towards the rider and releases an internal mechanism that allows the handlebars to be spun 90º in either direction.
The stem will work with a plethora of bikes, and adheres to relevant international safety marks such as ISO/EN/BS.
A Kickstarter page is coming soon, and supporters are promised up to 50% off the planned future msrp of £68 (~$90). Included in the Kickstarter page will be the opportunity to choose special colors and create personalized stems.
