The Universal Bike Launches on Kickstarter

Posted: Updated:
The first ergonomic adjustable bicycle designed for the 99%

Brooklyn, New York - On June 30th, Brooklyness announced the launch of a Kickstarter campaign for their new ergonomic “Universal Bike.” Having already raised almost $7,000 on the crowdfunding platform, this project aims to bring the first carbon fiber ergonomic bicycle to the masses.

“Now everyone can enjoy the benefits of a comfortable, custom fit, carbon fiber bike for less than a thousand dollars.” – Brooklyness team.

According to the Pedestrian & Bicycle Information Center, 18% of the adults in the US rode a bike at some point during 2012. However, less than 1% rides on a regular basis. There are a large percentage of the individuals that have the intention of riding, but do not stick with it. The ‘Universal Bike’ aims to remedy this issue.

‘We want to get everyone riding! To that end, we focused our efforts on understanding why people do not regularly ride bicycles and we found that comfort is one of the main reasons that keep people from riding more often.

With this challenge in mind, we designed the ‘Universal Bike.’ Our proprietary design allows for an easy change of geometry, making it possible for one bicycle to fit 99% of the population. With three basic measurements of the rider’s body and a riding preference, our “Size and Fit” app calculates the right setting ensuring a perfect fit.” – Brooklyness team.

Backers of the Kickstarter project can receive a fully adjustable ‘Universal Bike’ made in carbon fiber for $995 and a three-speed version for $1295. Early backers can secure a special offer for $895 and $1195 respectively. The funds will be used for production tooling and to develop the ‘Size & Fit’ app that calculates the proper setting for the bike and rider.

“With our carbon fiber adjustable frame, “The Universal Bicycle”, we aim to bring all the benefits of a custom built bicycle to a greater percentage of the population.” – Brooklyness team.

The Kickstarter project will run until Wednesday, July 30. For more information, check out the project page or contact the creators below.
