Road Bike Keychain Mini Toolby Vixay Design
Synopses & Reviews
Hello, my name is Michael Khamsot and I want to talk to you about my road bike keychain.
This idea came to me when I started riding my road bike to work. Like most people, I keep my keys in a front pants pocket. After a few minutes of hard riding up a monster hill, those keys caused a fair amount of discomfort, and I still had a long way to go! I realized that I needed to find a solution.
I went on a mission to find a unique keychain, functional yet simple in design. Nothing really stood out as I shopped. Sure, I could have hooked a carabiner onto my belt loop, attached a key ring full of keys, maybe a bottle opener or other accessories like an Allen wrench keychain for the bike. But this Swiss Army Knife of a solution amounts to a lot of dead weight to carry around.
My mission failed because I could not find that one keychain that combined simplicity of form and versatility of function. But after a lot of thinking and drawing and thinking and more drawing, a little drinking and more thinking and drawing, and after getting feedback from friends and family, the road bike keychain I sought was born.
