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.

Risks and challenges

I have been running my own bike shop for more than 10 years without ever getting into financial distress. Good customer service is my first priority and I will do my best do deliver all rewards on time, if you have questions or special requests, you can contact me any time and I will do my best to help you.
Since our suppliers are located very close to my workshop and have always been reliable, I am confident that we will not experience delays due to supply-chain-problems. In addition to close by suppliers I benefit from the expertise and support of several institutions in Augsburg. I am supported and coached by the Augsburg Center for Entrepreneurship, the first address for founders and start-ups in the region of Augsburg, and collaborate with the University of Augsburg's Physics Department which is currently testing my material.
However, there is a small probability that we run into unexpected problems since we are a small start-up. Should this scenario occur, we will do our best to resolve the situation quickly and keep the delay as small as possible.
Please note that shipping is not included in the prices. We will ship your reward in August (Early Bird) or December (Regular) with DHL. Delivery times can be very long if you live outside of Europe (for instance 2-3 weeks to the US), so please take into account that while we ship in September/December, the parcel will not necessarily arrive at your place until September 30/December 31. If you absolutely need your fenders by a certain date, please let us now in advance and we will tell you if we can arrange that or not. We do not assume responsabilty for delays or damages caused by the carrier. If you live outside the EU, there might also be custom duties and/or import-turnover taxes, which you will have to pay by yourself.

Ich betreibe seit mehr als 10 Jahren meinen eigenen Fahrradladen und bin dabei nie in finanzielle Schwierigkeiten geraten. Guter Kundenservice ist meine oberste Priorität und ich werde mich bemühen, alle Belohnungen pünktlich und euren Wünschen entsprechend zu verschicken. Meine Materialzulieferer sind in der selben Gegend ansässig und waren bisher immer sehr zuverlässig, daher bin ich zuversichtlich, dass es nicht zu Lieferproblemen kommen wird. Ich werde zudem vom Entrepreneurship Center der Uni Augsburg (ACE) unterstützt. Ein Restrisiko, dass es zu Verspätungen kommt, gibt es aber natürlich trotzdem, da wir ein kleines Startup sind und so etwas zum ersten Mal machen. Sollte es dazu kommen, werden wir uns redlich bemühen, die Verspätung so gering wie möglich zu halten.
Bitte beachtet, dass der Versand nicht im Preis inbegriffen wird, dieser wird später beim Zahlungsprozess hinzugerechnet. Wir verschicken die Schutzbleche als DHL Päckchen. Für Verspätungen und Schäden, die der Paketdienst zu verschulden hat, können wir nicht die Verantwortung übernehmen. Verschickt werden die Pakete jeweils spätestens am 30.September (early bird) oder am 31. Dezember (regulär). Solltest du aus irgendeinem Grund (Urlaub, Wettbewerb, etc.) die Schutzbleche unbedingt zu einem bestimmten Datum benötigen, sag uns bitte vorher Bescheid, dann können wir schauen, ob das produktionstechnisch machbar ist.
