Urban Roller Moves the Backpack to Your Back Wheel When Cycling to School

 - Jan 15, 2013
Two particular trends have come about in the worlds of students and businessmen. One of them is the switch to toting wheeled suitcases for transporting notes and laptops and the other is the increasing interest in commuting by bicycle. The Urban Roller Bike Trailer manages to accommodate the pair of these behaviors at once.

Megan Lin's idea would likely get more people biking to work if they knew they wouldn't have to carry a backpack. The piece of luggage might be slim but it's broad and tall and capable of accommodating everything from binders and textbooks to laptops and tablets and a stack of all of these together. A bi-directional adjustable tow-bar can be fitted to your two-wheeler while in transit. When it's time to walk, the Urban Roller Bike Trailer can be pulled along like your standard wheelly suitcase.
