Entrepreneur Sinéad Geraghty came up with a solution to her own bike-storing problem, and now she’s trying to turn it into a business.
Geraghty developed the Stowaway — a pulley device that allows people with space restrictions to store their bikes in the top two feet of any normal-sized room. The device, which Geraghty told INSIDER will retail for around $209, is designed so that the user hoists their bike up to the ceiling before locking it in place horizontally.
Geraghty recently started a Kickstarter campaign to raise enough money for production and distribution. She hopes to start shipping next summer.
