“I love biking to work, except for the 5-8 min uphill stretch on my way back home. Every evening I see bikers on that route agonizing to themselves (including me) over all the effort & pain of that hill, in what is otherwise a very pleasant part of our day ”
Clement and I realized that the solution to this problem had to be nuanced and apply to a wide demographic of urban commuters.
The solution had to be portable & lightweight so it could be easily detached after every use and taken along so it can’t be stolen, modular and inexpensive so a person who doesn’t own a bike or has a complicated inter-modal commute can bring it along to use it on shared bikes; or just rent it from a vending machine “
