Next Generation Bicycle Rack

TOUGH AS A BULL, LIGHT AS A FEATHER

 

Important Annoncment!!

OUR INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN STARTED OCTOBER 16 (TUESDAY) AT 9 AM CST.

LATEST UPDATES AS OF JANUARY 2022

As the result of playing with heavy e-bikes I'm Very exited to share pictures of improved version of the Light Bull.

What was changed:

- NEW CAM CLAMPING SYSTEM
- NEW CHAIN STAY SUPPORT

- Heads mounting tubing went from 1.5" to 2"
- Bottom Bracket support went from plastic to strong welded aluminum structure
- Down tube vertical support went from single 5/8" round tubing to double     1/2"x1" rectangular tubing
- Down tube horizontal support went from 5/8" round tubing to 20mm (over   3/4") round tubing
- 5 plastic components was eliminated - Head mounting tubing and diagonal   main tubing has now welded end caps
- Bolt spread connecting heads to vertical plates went from 1.6" to 2.5" (stiffer-   stronger)
- Rubber "V" jaws went from 2.25" to 2.75" in length . Cavity in center of jaws
was incorporated for better grab.
- Jaws movement was improved -is more smooth and precise.
- Handle position was changed from vertical to horizontal - more space for   supports adjustments.

All above makes Light Bull simpler, stronger and more elegant.
