The BUCA BOOT combines the flexibility of a bike basket with the storage security of a car trunk. Stop worrying about your stuff and go! This is a great idea designed by Katrhyn Carlson.
We would love to get two of these! Check it out.
From BUCA BOOT (Kick starter site):
Nothing beats the convenience of riding your bike. I do it everyday. But I really hate worrying about how to carry around all the stuff that comes with a busy life. What if it rains? What if I get cold? What if I want to go to that party later? What if I need to pick up groceries or grab a six-pack?
The Buca Boot answers those questions. It holds everything from a pair of shoes to a laptop to a case of beer. It keeps your things dry in the rain and safe when you walk away. Did we mention it looks good, too?
Over the past year, I’ve worked with an amazing team to create the prototype you see here. With your help, we can bring the Buca Boot to life and make it easier to choose your bike everyday.
The idea for Buca Boot was born while cycling the streets of London. I was always going somewhere — to classes at LSE, to a museum, to the pub, or all three in a row. Every activity required me to carry different things. I felt like a pack mule taking it all on my bike.
I started thinking … wouldn’t it be great if I could treat my bike the way that everyone treats a car trunk (or ‘boot,’ as they call it in Britain), where you can just toss a gym bag or an extra pair of shoes in the trunk, no problem?
Over the last four years, I’ve enlisted various designers and engineers to realize my vision. We worked through iteration after iteration just trying to nail the combination of features that make the Buca Boot different: security, weather resistance, and a flexible lid system. In 2013, the final team came together and made something we wanted to share with the world.
