People buy beautiful bicycles only to put a mix-match of accessories on it. Having these necessary add-ons introduces a few problems and inconveniences. Capital is a bike saddle that acts as the keystone for all your accessories.

These accessories are usually easy to steal and clutter the look of the bike. This system provides a solution that is light weight, theft proof, convenient and aesthetically pleasing.
This concept originated from observations made around London, San Francisco, and Hamburg. The saddle builds off a habit many riders already have - bringing your seat inside when locking up your bike. Now all your accessories easily come with you to preventing any theft.
Many configurations are possible to suit many rider's needs. The system was designed so regardless of what options are used, the saddle will still look great.
The front light is simply removed from it's mount and then attached to the saddle's clamping bolt - allowing all your accessories to be carried together. This is achieved by using magnetic connections.
The fender and light compliment each other in terms of their formal relationship but also by function. Acting as a light pipe, it increases the rider's visibility.
The quick release was moved up the the top of the seat post so people don't have to carry an awkwardly shaped and greasy seat into their homes or work.
Thank you!
