A discreet cargo system that takes all the weight off you.
Perfect for a daily commute or a day at the beach.
Paracord drawstrings secure cargo, and heavy duty aluminum clips hold everything tightly and a rigid stainless-steel tube frame ensures solid structure for transportation.
A rear tube handle is used to remove the bag from the frame, and is able to mount a standard seatpost tail light.
The bag removed and ready to carry.
Process
The intent of this project was to create a useful product for cycling commuters. The basis of the design was the result of 120 responses sourced from an online cycling community. The majority of respondents most frequently traveled to work or school in urban environments, and carried small items such as tools, clothes, or snack using backpacks.
Market research revealed that seatpost-mounted bags may offer the most benefits for most users who did not need large capacity, but were not widely used or well-known, and seemed to be notorious for floppy structures. This seemed like a strong opportunity for improvement.​​​​​​​
The mounting system has potential as a platform for a variety of bags to fit users' functional and aesthetic needs.

Final revision sketch:
Ultimately, this prototype was tested daily for 2 months on New York City streets and performed excellently.
An improved version with updated styling and materials is currently in the works.
