The stylish and simple solution for bike transportation. Its minimal design works with nearly all handlebars and weighs only 35 grams (1.2 ounces).

1. Helps you carry everything but a fridge.

carryyygum is really flexible and you may fix a lot of different things.

2. Works with just about every handlebar.

carryyygum fits almost every kind of handlebar...

...and it works inside the frame as well...

 ... or with your kid's scooter!

3. Beautiful colors

We'll start with the colors yellow, blue, green. If the stretch goals are reached, we'll unlock more colors (see below for details).

Please notice that actual colors may slightly vary.

1. carryyygum transports just about everything!

Stay safe with both hands on the handlebar and let carryyygum do the work for you!

Simply fasten with carryyygum:

Packages, books, shoes, clothes, equipment for the beach, bananas, …

Everything you want - as far as you manage to fasten it and as far as it doesn’t hinder your safe riding. It’s up to you to insure that the fixed goods are no safety concern!

You shouldn’t transport:

Things with long bands, strings or sleeves as they may become entangled in the spokes, heavy things, living things like your child or your pet (we’re sure you didn’t even think of this!), fridges :-)

2. carryyygum works with almost any handlebar!

To make sure it works on your handlebar make sure that:

3. Our stretch goals: we’ve got 9 different colors for the strap!

If the initial funding goal is reached, the first 3 colors (yellow, blue, green) will be available.
Our stretch goals: Every 200 pledges we make a little survey among all supporters to unlock another of the colors on the right! At the moment you may choose between yellow, green, blue and black. The next survey for the next color will take place if we have 700 supporters in total.

When the campaign has ended, we'll send you an email and you may choose the color of your carryyygum or your carryyygums.


Simple and patent pending

We tried and tested a lot to find a lightweight solution which works with almost any bar and looks great at the same time.

carryyygum consists of a superlight carrier, a hook-and-loop tape with a rubberized contact area and a durable elastic strap. It weighs only 35 grams (1.2 ounces).

The solution was developed with the support of friends, bike enthusiasts and product designers and we registered a patent with the German Patent and Trademark Office (patent pending).

What’s the idea and vision?

The first idea for carryyygum came up about a year ago. Since then we devolped a really user-friendly product to make our daily lifes a little bit easier and way more colorful!

Now we need your support to produce the prototype in series. With your support the fantastic idea of the world’s smallest bicycle rack will become reality! Thank you!

Risks and challenges

The successfull funding on Kickstarter will be used to finance the series production and to scale up. We tested many prototypes and discussed the product with many friends, bike dealers and bike enthusiasts. By now the product is fully developed and we already got our manufacturers.
