The fantastic group of engineers at Great Scott Technologies came to me with an ambitious design and a need for a fully functioning pre-production prototype. I was eager to help, as I love putting deigns into steel and out on the street.
The process started with interpreting their design drawings into small production appropriate parts and materials, while refining the look and not sacrificing any functionality.
Many hours of planning, cutting, bending, machining and welding went into making the pieces finally come together.
Utilizing tools intended for bicycle building, but adjusted for this unique purpose, we were able to make a very ridable and fun prototype.
The final result was a fully functioning stand up, folding bike - that was a blast to ride. The engineering team eventually took their concept to manufacturers and got a production prototype and laughed a kickstarter campaign - which unfortunately didn't quite meet their goals.
