Here are the facts:

My counselor very kindly is loaning me her bicycle for this summer. It is a Schwinn Suburban (kinda like this); it's beautiful, it's vintage, and it's heavy. I am a 100 lb. female, and fairly weak in the upper body. I live one floor up, and I barely got it upstairs.

While I am excited to use this bike (it's been around for a loooong time) I am not so excited to carry this thing around and possibly seriously injure myself.

Any suggestions until I get really buff?  Tongue

Fight evil: read books.

If you find the magic solution, let me know?  Wink

I also bike for transportation, and have a heavy bike that is made even heavier by all the bells and whistles I attached. I don't have to carry it upstairs at home, but I do sometimes carry it up the long flight of stairs in and out of the subway. I am probably taller than you, but what I do is 1) put the seat on my right hand/up by my shoulder and my left hand on the handle stem, 2) try to find the center of gravity and lift the bike by the top bar of the frame and try to get it near my shoulder (harder with your shape of frame) or 3) lift the whole thing up so it's on the rear wheel, grab onto the frame, and roll it up the stairs on one wheel. Just make sure you're not standing on the side with the gears.
