Bicycles are great things to ride, but awkward things to carry.
I live in a walk-up, and every so often run into my female neighbor hoisting her bicycle up to her shoulder to schlep it up the stairs. If I run into her at the bottom, I'll offer to carry it up for her; if I run into her mid-staircase I won't, because we both know it's too awkward to transfer from one person to another in that position. That's when we both stop and look at the camera, infomercial style, and simultaneously say "There has to be a better way!"
That better way is Walnut Studiolo's Bicycle Frame Handle, a simple leather strap that lets you carry your ride safely, easily, and ergonomically.
It's up on Kickstarter and has more than quadrupled its measly $3,500 goal. Buy-in starts at $30, but you'd better hurry—there's just one day left.

Although a leather strap for the shoulder at the intersection of top tube and seat tube would be a good idea for other circumstances.
