5th April 2012. How can two people get from A to B, if there is coincidentally only one bicycle around? Right you are – one can give a lift to the other on the rear rack! After 100 meters of riding, another question popped up: why the hell aren’t the pedals wider, so the passenger can keep the feet somewhere and at the same time “lend a leg” to the sweating friend behind the handlebars?

This exact thing happened to Kristjan Holm and Kaspar Jancis one fateful morning. The first sketch was drawn soon after!

Later the same day – bizarre! – it’s not possible to buy this kind of pedals from eBay or anywhere else… Well, then it’s just the time for a small brainstorming!
