Summary

The current technology is a system that allows cyclists to more easily carry bikes up and down stairs, allowing both commercial and residential buildings to improve usability for bicycle commuters.  

Technology Overview

Bicycles and other wheeled conveyances have difficulty traversing stairs. People and riders frequently must pick up the bike and carry it up or down the stairs. The “Modular Bicycle Gutter” was designed to make stairway access easier for bicycles. It is a channel composed of interlocking beams and a rail based mounting system to be installed on existing stairways without the need for redesign or reconstruction of the stairs.
