An Israeli inventor looks set for success after his detachable trolley that turns normal bike into a tilting cargotrike raises most of its Kickstarter target in a week. Designer Yadan Ofir has so far raised $70,258 of his $80,000 goal, and the Kickstarter campaign still has 24 days to go.

The TReGo load-carrying trolley attaches quickly to front forks – tool-free – with a proprietary quick-release mechanism, and replaces the front wheel with two smaller wheels that lean into turns. Detaching is also quick and easy, enabling the two-wheel trolley to be used for carting shopping and so on.

Ofir's patented invention started life as an academic project in the Industrial Design Department at Jerusalem's Bezalel Academy.
