We, a student and I, got accepted into the fall 2019 Milwaukee I-Corps cohort to investigate the market viability and options for the PantherTrike. We are tasked with conducting 40 in-person interviews in the next 4 weeks, and the number 1 rule is “don’t pitch your product.” We’re supposed to listen instead to identify what a potential customer or business partner is looking for.
If you have an idea of what you need to continue riding comfortably, drop me a line. We’d love to hear from you.
In other news, the local VA has loaned us a Sun delta trike, with which I hope to investigate what it would take to retrofit is for tilting. Is there a kit we could make that will do the job?
In the lab, we continue to develop the ability to trim to vertical.
The ASME HPVC student group is wrapping up their brainstorming and starting to create detailed designs for PanterTrike v1.5 and v2.0 for the competition in April.
