The present work relates to the design and fabrication of stabilizer wheel supported bicycle. Rider operable and retractable stabilizer wheels were designed to be used as a rider's assistance to support weight of the rider during impending, slowing and stopping the bicycle. The rider engages support wheels to obtain assistance while seated. To engage and constrain the mechanisms manually, the present study involved the usage of hand-lever mechanism. In addition, Shock absorbers were also provided to the stabilizer wheels to further improve the stability. The retractable wheels were mounted with a provision of raising and lowering the wheels as per requirement with the help of twisted metallic cables. Thus the installation of retractable stabilizer wheels would provide a hindrance free ride for bicycle riders. This would further augment usage of bicycle in the general population and also in individuals who have difficulty balancing on the road.
