It’s been a long time since we have written any update here on our blog. 2017 was a difficult year with a lot of setbacks. Our original plan in 2016 was to make the folding mechanism and bike here in Finland.
We thought manufacturing of this frame in Asia, would be possible. Unfortunately, we encountered too many set backs, so we had to rethink things once again.
We have learned many valuable lessons. Right now we are working as fast as we possible can to get this product into market.
At this point we have made a test order of 100pcs for the rear part of the frames + forks. 4 days ago the sample parts for the front part of the frame arrived.
So during this weekend we welded the frame together to see that all the parts was okay.
We have also made a quick release instead of a handle with screw for the folding mechanism, so now the folding mechanism works better and faster.
Bellow in the picture is a 57.5cm frame which will be our biggest. We had to make some compromises since it is a folding bike. It is only 1.5cm smaller than our biggest planned frame of 59cm.
Here are some pictures. It will now go for powder painting, after that we will do some more testing.
Thank you for the support from everyone!
