About

Who-Why-What?

  I am a casual rider who is lucky enough to live in a time when there are so many choices for riding. I have noticed that everyone has big baskets, saddle bags or backpacks whether at the beach or in the city. Which is great but I don't need always need that.

So I came up with my own way to bring a few things on a quick ride. I call it the "ZIP TRAY". Everybody has certain things they need or want to carry when zipping around town. The ZIP TRAY can give them, you and I what we need to zip around.  Once you get your hands on one you can personalize it by putting stickers,pins, patches or even bedazzle it (lol).

PLAN:

When I was ready to have my product realized I contacted a Computer Aided Design company to put my design in a 3D computer model. It would create a database for manufacturing and help the manufacturer improve the quality of the design. I searched for mold injecting companies in my area to cut down on shipping prices. The company I chose to go with used my 3D model and informed me of any flaws with the design and options to correct them, along with different materials available to me. I can have anywhere from 10 to 10,000 pieces produced in 1-15 days with injection molding. I also decided to go with Blue, red, yellow, green, pink, black, silver, white colors to start with. 

Project funding: All funds will be used for the tooling, injection molding and first run units. New tray patterns will be added with all funding over pledged amount. 

Specifications: Designed for most bicycles but specifically cruisers and it will also fit small kid bikes. Material used is a polymer-based material. Size: (LxWxH): 6” x 8” x 6.5” 

 The process is ready to roll and all it needs is some green. I am asking you to be a part of this dream and one day when you see someone with the tray on their bike - you'll be smiling knowing you helped make that happen.

Risks and challenges

The problems I might come across would most likely be the strength of the material used in production. The elements adverse effects on the end product still needs to be seen. The manufacturer already has previous experience with different materials and their exposure to real world events and will make recommendations according to the intended use of the trays. The design of the tray may have to be slightly altered when determining its strength and ruggedness for daily use.
I plan on producing and selling what I have, instead of selling and then ordering This way I will be able to make any changes in case of any unforeseen flaws.
