Bicycle pump integrated in the handlebar of a bicycle

The bicycle pump was developed as a project for a course aimed at constructions and plastics at ‘Saxion University of Applied Science’. Nowadays the bicycle pumps are visible assembled on most of the bicycles. The project attempted to find a new way to incorporate the pump in a bicycle. The team of designers chose to combine the pump with the handlebar, because there is less development going on with concerns to the handlebar. The pump can easily be disengaged from the bicycle. Moulds were developed to produce the product by extrusion.
