The original click and twist handlebar system.

This unique stem design, a world first, is the result of applying fresh and radical thinking to the everyday problem of storing, parking and generally managing a bike in a busy urban environment. Quicktwist is the first in a range of innovative products from new 'design house' Urbancyclo, Oxford, England.

Quicktwist is the answer.

Quicktwist Handlebars

Click and twist. Easy park. Easy store.

Home, office, hallways, sheds, garages and city street parking - Quicktwist® is the fix.

Quicktwist allows the handlebars of a cycle to be rotated up to 90° in either direction, reducing the width of your bike by up to 80% allowing for easy storage against the wall in your home, garage or shed and making parking in congested city centre locations a breeze, and it’s great for transporting bikes too. Simply undo the quick release safety catch, pull the locking collar towards you to release the fiendishly clever (patent pending) internal mechanism and you can turn the handlebars to any angle - reverse procedure to safely lock back to riding position and you're good to go.

The Quicktwist stem is compatible with most bikes and will carry all relevant international safety marks ISO/EN/BS.

Quicktwist stem - will be available in satin black or polished alloy finish with a range of coloured collars - composite prototype shown Quicktwist stem will be available in either black or polished alloy finish with choice of anodised colours for the collar (3D composite prototype shown) Reclaim your hallway ... or kitchen, living room, garage, shed, back yard ...
