About this project

 

 

We are not here to sale existing bicycles on this awesome platform, we are here to try to make a dream come true. This is a totally new concept, so new that we haven't named the bike yet. That's why we use the three letters "LFN", which means "LOOKING FOR NAME".  And yes, it is our concept, Imagine this: "Us claiming the design and development of the bike, then you find it on sale in another Country designed and developed by another company" that would be embarrassing and sad. We guaranty that our Bike is not on the market in any country, we dreamed it, designed it, developed it, patented it, and brought it to you to get your support. So...

 

        

 

 

 

Is not necessary to learn something new to ride LFN Bike since walking, running, riding a bike, stepping, or climbing are part of your daily routine. All those natural body motions are what you need to ride LFN Bike.

 We are very excited to bring you this beautiful and stunning LFN Bike. It was built from scratch and we worked in good faith to provide the best possible bike that we can develop. Even though; we feel 100% confident in the results, we still reserve the right to send you an upgraded version of LFN Bike. Support us to make this new machine roll on the streets of your hometown. Get your LFN Bike and start climbing the mountain without the mountain.

All funds will be assign to manufacture all different components and necessary expenses of LFN Bike. Since this is a new and unique concept the manufacture costs are more expensive then a regular bike. We are asking for enough time to develop all the custom parts and give manufacturers the time to familiarize themselves with the different components to manufacture them, test them and approve each part accordingly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Prototype is 100% tested and ready, now our focus is on:

Tooling  

Industrial design

Making small final tweaks to accessories

Negotiations with manufacturers

Developing components to upgrade final LFN Bike

We've been working on LFN Bike for years. The prototype is ready funded by ourselves. Production is getting closer and we need your support to start producing. It has taken too long, we've come a long way and done everything possible in our hands. Your support is crucial in making this dream come true. Help us spread the word, tell your friends about LFN Bike they might want to have this beautiful machine. 

-You will feel better helping clean the environment and your body will thank you. 

-You will save money on transportation. 

-You will be one of the first to get one of the very first LFN Bike in the world.

 

Risks and challenges

Risks are everywhere, at any time and with everyone especially producing a new product with many unique components. Below are some risks we may encounter and what we are doing to minimize them.

- Product life: We have been testing this prototype for 2 years (real testing) on the streets, uphill, bumps, weather conditions, maximum strength leg power with an over 250 lbs rider. It has been working with no problems, but you never know if there are hidden issues that could arise, that's why we are trying to find any potential weaknesses to solve them before they become a problem.

- Production: In this matter is where some issues may visit us. To try to mitigate this, we are going to invest extra time to make adjustments on possible delays.

-Manufacturer: we have chosen manufacturers that are recognized in producing bicycles and others who specialize in producing CNC parts, gearbox, and other components, but still something out of our control can occur.

-Quality and Control: A member of our team and an agent who specializes in bikes will be in China checking the quality and control to make sure production is been done the way we need it. Keep in mind that checking quality and control of all parts will start at the same time and that may bring some delays.
