Spent a far amount of time thinking about if I really needed this lifter. I'm in a four story building with six steps up to the front door and another 5 up in the lobby. Happy to say the having the lifter for the bike has made the stairs so much easier to get up. Ergonomically - this is such a great tool. So glad that I've bought it for my bike. Well worth the cost.
Arrived quickly, installed easily, works great, and makes my townie much easier to carry around.
I love my new handle. I’ve been carrying my bike up and down stairs to my apartment and this handle makes that MUCH easier.
Plus, I asked for plastic free packaging and they fulfilled the request! Even including a handwritten note about the company’s plans for phasing out single use plastic and instead making packaging biodegradable. Thanks for being environmentally conscious!!!
FYI: if you make purchases online, there is usually a box to send sellers a note - I have found many (not all) companies are willing to comply to plastic free packaging requests.
Yes, this handle is rather expensive considering what it does: for me, it is only enabling me to carry my bike up one flight of stairs at my apartment. However, considering the fact that I make this little climb at least three times every week, the cumulative amount of comfort provided by this little handle over the months is adding up. Furthermore, Walnut as a business does an excellent job at character and branding, from their packaging and presentation to their occasional and relevant email follow-up messages. Workmanship is high-quality, and I am proud to have supported this company with my purchase.
