I've noticed there are a lot of bike- oriented fundraising drives on Kickstarter, and many, although not all, get over-funded. There are a lot of these drives, too...
Not bad.
That tells me there are a lot of individuals who will risk their $ to help move the technology forward, and in the end, get a fair deal for something or another.

Take this wall mounted bike rack. A bit pricey, but it seems to have some counterweight inside the assembly to make putting the bike into vertical storage, or taking it down, easier....

[admin edit: removed link, no crowfunding or kickstarters]

If you spot something worth knowing about on a crowdfunding site, or something just 'novel' perhaps you could post the link here.

Cheers,

Just do not post a link to your own crowdfunding project as that is against forum rules.

Here is from the forum guidelines.

It is his link. It was linked to his name on the bottom of the post.

Okay, I won't do that again, but I will point out that this is NOT my crowdfunding drive. This comes from a team of designers in Vilnius, Lithuania, while I live in Savona, B.C., Canada.
I have nothing to do with this product.
I just thought this device might be of interest to some people.

My apologies if I have offended anyone by trying to publicize something that might be an aide to people who can no longer lift their bikes. I'm pretty sure now that I am one of those people...
