prototype 1 & preparation visit 2


Finally, after 2 weeks of hard work, the 1st prototype is finished. In the next clip the different assembly steps are shown, which make a bare frame into a real multipurpose bicycle.

Also the very first test drives were made and luckily we have our fantastic prop, Floor de Bruijn, acting as cargo. The bicycle feels good and steering is easy. Next to this we are all happy that we created a working model, which we can use for testing and improvement in our 2nd visit of Kisumu, which will begin the 28th of December.

So tomorrow the last day of preparations, christmas celebration and then.. up to Kisumu again.
