We had one goal: make a cup holder for bikes that actually works. People said we were crazy, and we might be, but the love for our shock absorbing cup holder has been overwhelming. Based on our experience creating cup holders, we decided to expand our product offering and add handlebar bags and insulated stem bags in 2023.
HandleStash was inspired by spilled coffee while cruising the beach in southern California. Adam, the creator of HandleStash, was trying to carry a coffee while riding the strand bike path in Hermosa Beach and had nowhere to put it. The coffee kept jumping and splashing on every bump, and he saw a lot of other bikes with cup holders, but they didn't have drinks in them.
He knew there had to be a better way, and after two years of product development, real world testing, and many spilled drinks the HandleStash cup holder was launched in April of 2020.
HandleStash is dedicated to making quality bike accessories and manufacturing in Colorado as much as possible.
Adam, the founder and inventor of HandleStash, is an avid cyclist and a fan of all things bicycle. You'll see him cruising to Denver breweries on his '66 Schwinn Typhoon, riding singletrack on a Made-In-Denver Guerrilla Gravity, or crushing gravel and concrete on his Masi commuter bike.
