What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

  • Why should I choose this bicycle? We believe that we have created a unique bicycle. Our value proposal is delivering a product that us as a cyclist would like to ride and buy. Our competitors offer the same concept at double the price so we think we have a pretty good cost-effective proposal. 
  • Why should I trust your company? The main difference that distinguishes us from other brands is that we live or have lived in Asia for a long period of time. We understand Asian culture, we speak their language and we know how to collaborate. Our aim is to deliver trust and a quality product that fulfils your rider expectations. 
  • Will you be able to meet all demands? Definitely Yes! Our plans and goals are bigger than a Kickstarter campaign and we ensured that we are working with a manufacturer big enough to fulfil our forecast expectations. 
  • How can I choose the colour, size and final spec? Once the Kickstarter campaign will be finished, we will proceed to contact all the backers to ask for the specifications of every single bicycle. One important decision will be the colours, size and components. We will ensure that every single backer will receive his unique Lauva Bike. 
  • Do you know the manufacturer? We know the manufacturer and we have been in their facilities. We have daily contact with them and we can ensure the quality of the product. We have created strong bonds that brands which only come to manufacture or place orders will never have. 
  • Where is the battery? The battery is completely hidden and integrated into the down tube of the bike frame. That solution makes it looks like a normal bicycle and enhance its beautiful design. Also, helps the battery be protected. 
  • What kind of battery has the bicycle? The Lauva Bikes mounts a rechargeable Samsung 36V, 6.8 AH battery. This battery is the best one right now in the market in terms of power for the size. 
  • How do you charge the battery? All bikes include a charging unit that plugs directly into the bicycle top tube. You will see a green light when the bicycle will be fully charged. 
  • Can the battery be removed? The battery can be removed easily. We recommend bringing the bicycle to a professional in case you need to replace it. We can deliver spare batteries without any single problem. 
  • Which is the range of one charge? Depending on the use and the level of assist, you can ride from 40 to 70 km’s. This range should be enough to cover the average weekly distance that commuters ride. 
  • How much time does it take to charge the battery? It takes 3 hours to charge from empty to full. 
  • How much does the bike weight? The weight varies on the specifications and the size of the bicycle. The weight range is between 14.5 and 15 kgs. 
  • What kind of maintenance the does bicycle require? We recommend for basic maintenance like any other normal bicycle. Keep it clean and to grease, the chain will help you have the best cycling experience. 
  • Where do I have to bring the bicycle in case of a problem? Like any other ordinary bicycle, we recommend to bring it to a professional bike shop. At the end, our bicycles share 90% of all components with normal bicycles. 
  • What does that “torque sensitive” mean? That means that the power is delivered once you apply pressure to the pedal. The more you push, the more the motor will help you. 
  • How long is the warranty? All Lauva Bicycles come with a 1-year warranty included. 
  • Once I receive my bike, how do I assemble it? The Lauva Bikes come partially assembled. If you have knowledge of bicycle mechanics, you can follow the instructions. In case of doubt, we recommend to bring it to professional. They shouldn’t charge you more than one hour for the work. 
  • Is the bicycle waterproof? This subject is important because we are dealing with electric components. All the parts are water resistant and the battery is protected inside the frame and also with a waterproof case. We tested our bicycles in light and moderate rain to ensure that no further problem will happen to end consumers. 
  • How the bicycle delivers the power? Our bicycle is a pedal assist. We believe this is the simpler and more reliable technology for an urban use. 
  • If I am between bike sizes, what bike I should get? In doubt, it’s always better to take a smaller size and adapt the length of the steam and the seat post. We will check every single order to deliver the bicycle that will fit your size.
    

 

 

 
 

 

 

Risks and challenges

All the customers have 5 days to cancel their purchase after finalizing the Kickstarter Campaign.

The main difference that distinguishes us from other brands is that we live or have lived in Asia for a long period of time. We understand Asian culture, we speak their language and we know how to work with them. However, there is always a risk when working with manufacturing companies that we can’t directly oversee. We highly trust them but there is always a chance for delays.

We are working with a reliable cargo company that will take care of the shipping. Likewise, there is always a chance for delays due to weather inclemencies, change of routes or other reasons. When shipping there is always a risk and we can't directly influence.

We will be happy to answer all your questions via email at hello@lauvabikes.com
