"Bicycle handlebar 2.0"
Here I have
experimented with the handlebar, with the thought in mind that it could be even better.
My point was that I find the cables on a bicycle very annoying and ugly.
the and brakes are in the way, cables often get stuck in Bicycle racks.
It's been so long sinds the first design of the handlebar, maybe it can be improved.

I'm Marcel, 26 years old.
I was born in Glasgow, grew up in a little town and now for 2.5 years in Westbroek of which 1.5 years with my wife.
As a child I always wanted to be an astronaut or an inventor. With K'nex and Legos I built everything I could think of, to working bands guns and everthing.
Unfortunately I had to go a different way because of my rather severe dyslexia. A long road that eventually brought me a lot of practical knowledge, experience and motivation.
In high school, the dream was still to be inventer. The first educationalpath was to become a carpenter. After graduating I went to MBO building/contruction which is like university in the us. in the netherlands this has mutiple tiers 1 trough 4. in sort I had to start in tier 2 and to get to tier 4 was going to be 4 years of studing so a spend a whole summer vacation learning to do an intake test in tier 4 which succeded. and after a four year studie in tier 4 I graduated.
After that long proses always said: I will not study anymore. But when I was dating my now wife I learned about the HKU trough her, and I was so excited. First I did a year Spatial design (architecture direction), but surprisingly it wasn't for me. I then moved on to product design. This suits me really well and I am now in the fourth year. I've done and learned a lot and I find great pleasure in making things. On this website you can see a selection of it.
