In a building I used to live in the stairs had a flat section on either
side that was wide enough to put the tires on and then push the bike
upwards. I think those strips were close to 4" wide or slightly less.

As far as using pulleys to pull your bike up to your balcony, due to
insurance regulations and possible lawsuits if the rope should break
and someone or something got injured/damaged, I bet the build
manager/owners will say no way.

Another thing I've done whenever the elevator was out of order in the
building I live in now, is to push the bike up a stair or two, squeeze
the front brake hard and then step up to beside the bike and repeat
that until I reached my floor.

I have done your last idea.

VERY time consuming and hard on my back as well.

I do it with a Bullit Cargo bike a couple of times a year. It sucks big

Imagine how it feels doing it every night? Which ain't gonna happen.


Get rid of the bike. Problem solved.

But I have learned that you are "bicycle" challenged.

Well, you mentioned a problem, that you couldn't safeguard your bike
by carrying it upstairs.I suggested a lighter bike and you seemed to
have a problem with that. Someone else suggested that you move to a
location where you didn't have to lug your bike up stairs and you had
a problem with that.

So essentially you don't want a lighter bike, you don't want to move,
so what's the solution? Buy a helium balloon and float up? Get rid of
the problem? i.e., the bicycle? Magic

As for being bicycle challenged? Well, I can still carry my bike up
stairs :-)

You are a good source of humor.



Satire, please. I always refer to it as Satire :-)
