Four touring bikes - all outfitted with SteerStoppers® and parked on a downhill slope... no problem!

I’ve always been a tinkerer and problem solver; taking things apart to see how they work (or why they don't) and then putting them back together.  My oldest brother's love of bikes in the 70's was contagious and I soon became a bicycle enthusiast, dabbling in road and criterium racing as well as fully loaded, self-contained touring. 

Fast forward to 2012.  While looking at my bicycle, I wondered how I could make it more stable when I parked it, especially when it was loaded with front and rear panniers. 

So… what started out as a seemingly-simple idea turned out to be anything but.  The research and development would consume the better part of five-years.  Each prototype exposed a need for improvements in the design.  Then, in 2017, the SteerStopper® finally became a reality.

We are a small, two-person business.  In our solar powered facility, we hand assemble each SteerStopper®to precise standards so that you will enjoy your SteerStopper®, and the convenience that it offers, for many years to come.

Our goal is simple: Offer a high quality, useful product and provide the best customer service possible. We hope to eventually give a percentage of any profits to charity.   

 

The SteerStopper® is convenient, simple, and always at the ready to hold your front wheel straight with the flip of the lever.  

once installed, you’ll wonder how you ever got along without it.
