New Idea

Hello, I am a student from England and for my GCSE (standardized examination), I need to produce a product which solves problems which us cyclists have. I am therefore all ears to any problems that people have with their bicycles. Like, Saddles, Handlebars or Security etc. I am a keen cyclist myself and therefore would really appreciate any problems people have. When I ask for issues, I mean things that could physically be changed or redesigned in order to make cycling more enjoyable.
Thanks!

Some ideas:

Good cycling-oriented rain gear for commuters (that accommodates normal clothes underneath) is always appreciated. What could you do in this area for bikepackers? Or, for kids riding on the back of long-tail cargo bikes?

Something to keep cycling gear organised in the house (Helmets, jackets, gloves, hats, vests, shoes, locks, panniers, etc.)

Chain cleaning equipment/ mechanisms could use some attention regarding their design and usability.

- solutions to riding in the rain (poor vis, mucky clothes, etc.)
- easy kid-centered (on-bike storage and coding) locking mechanisms
- some way to automatically read/file/share bike registration information so your bike can be more easily recovered if stolen. We humans are lazy and will take advantage of a program that will do our work for us!
- dynamo head and taillights that are easy for the layman to pop on to a bike
- is there a vibrating handgrip map device in use now?? I thought that was going to be a thing but havenít seen it in use. Seems like a great idea! Push that out and people should respond.
