is an ingenious teardrop bicycle caravan with three modes. In 'Stow'
mode it concertinas down to just 21cm so it can be put away easily when not
in use. In 'Road' mode it extends to 60 cm wide so you can get where you are

a 1.2 metre version). With its small and aerodynamic shape and super light
weight it is no problem to tow along. You can even put a 6 ft Fliptail or
Origami dinghy inside!
At just 30 kilos it is very easy to tow and if it's windy you can unzip the
sides to make it easier to pedal and avoid it being blown over. Despite its

sail. Despite it's light construction it is surprisingly strong.
The Stasha is made of two halves with a simple locking mechanism allowing it
to be easily assembled on deck, on shore or even in the water. As it's made from so few materials it
doesn't cost much to build.
