Bicycle two level stand

The bicycle stand was developed as a redesign for the fifth design project at ‘Saxion University of Applied Science’. The redesign is aimed at increasing the usability of the stand. The existing stands have a heavy gravitational centre and are therefore not easy to use. People who are not capable of lifting heavily cannot make use of the upper stands. The new stands are more easy to use, because of the gravitational centre which is negligible. To pull the bicycle up and down the amount of force required is decreased due to the built-in spring. This makes it possible for everybody to make use of the second layer stand.
