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.

Hello there.

New American président and new kickstarter project today! (09/11/2016).

It is a carbon mini bike project!

My name is Mathieu Colin de Verdiere and I am kaarbble.eu which is a micro company in French Alpes at 1550m altitude.

The results of some research is used to make mini carbon bikes but this process is rather slow hence the price. The carbon fibres is carved around objects and not woven like other kickstarter project. The strenght, stiffness and feel is then different: ultralight and othotropic (different mechanical properties in different directions) with a carbon visual black varnished finish. The numbers of layers is reduced so that the bike can bend if you load them out of the plane, be carefull doing so but you can pull on it.

The idea is to get a bit of funding and to deliver bikes in décembre.

There is Necklace, Earings, and just standing with support, in 2D or 3D for Fat, Mountain or race bikes, some have a frame with white backround for black & white art.

I try to give you a white contrast way to put in evidence the carbon bike (only for 2 D bikes), but you might need to change improve the white as your taste. I focuss on the mini bike.

Made in alpes at altitude!

I hope to hear from you,

Kind regards,

Mathieu

Risks and challenges

Hello again,

The risks are small, the project is working, compact and short time with a very limited number in maximum limit bikes so I don't get overloaded. I can be full time in octobre and novembre if needed and do more or other things next year on another kickstarter, if it works well. If something was to go wrong it would be only delays but there is no reasons for this to happen. I can be full time until decembre and may be in decembre to.

As most project it depends heavily on the post across the world but carbon fibres is ultralight with some stiffness which should help us. Will take special care in the posting so you receive your bike in time for Christmas.

Thank you,

Mathieu
