[Buca Boot: Flexible, Secure Storage for the Urban Biker](

Alas, I’m not much of a bike commuter right now due to the road to my son’s daycare being a blind-corner no-shoulder nightmare. But this just looks cool:

I started thinking … wouldn’t it be great if I could treat my bike the way that everyone treats a car trunk (or ‘boot,’ as they call it in Britain), where you can just toss a gym bag or an extra pair of shoes in the trunk, no problem?

Over the last four years, I’ve enlisted various designers and engineers to realize my vision. We worked through iteration after iteration just trying to nail the combination of features that make the Buca Boot different: security, weather resistance, and a flexible lid system. In 2013, the final team came together and made something we wanted to share with the world.
