About

so many ways to hold a bike
so many ways to hold a bike

The Swagger bike stand was designed to be the most versatile bike stand on the market, keeping your bike upright and off the ground in all conditions to allow for easy access, cleaning and display. The stand is collapsable and portable making it especially useful for those who stage for rides out of the trunk of a car. The stand works on flat and sloped surfaces and holds any kind of bicycle, including 29 inch, 27.5 inch, 26 inch, 24 inch and fat bikes.

OK so you may never hang your bike off the edge of the local reservoir pump house.  But all riders have been in situations that require the need to prop the bike up without the front or rear wheel attached.

The swagger bike stand uses the weight of the bike for stability and balance and can support your bike without the front or rear wheel attached.

Stability comes from the bike's own weight

Construction

The bike stand is CNC machined out of high-quality birch plywood, which is similar to the material used in wooden skateboards.  The artwork is digitally printed, finished and sealed for long-lasting durability. Recycled bike chain supports the stand legs.

Thanks to Jerry, Jay, Mark, Karen, Susie and Patrick for providing design feedback and to Sasja Lucas for creating the artwork.  Most of all, thanks to my wife and kids for putting up with my obsession with the Swagger bike stand.

Risks and challenges

By backing this project you are fueling the drive and determination to manufacture quality bike stands that are sustainably sourced and designed to deliver the best user experience possible.

That said, I have backed enough kickstarter campaigns to know that scaling production seems to be the biggest risk in most kickstarter projects. It will likely be risk in this one as I strive to deliver a quality bike stands that are sustainably sourced at a reasonable price, but I assure you we can overcome these challenges.

Design tweaks and changes, as we continue our usability testing, leaf blower testing and water hose testing we will likely discover ways to improve the form and function of the stand. Trust me every time I think I came up with the final design I discover another tweak that will make it better.

Shipping and delivery of the rewards can also be a bit tricky. The backers can do their part to support this effort ensuring your shipping addresses is up to date in the kickstarter database.
