Product of the People: See Our First Design Sketches

by Slava Menn, GOOD Worldwide

May 20, 2012

We're working with Slava Menn and Brad Geswein, the founders Gotham Bicycle Defense Industries, to create a new piece of urban biking gear. Unlike most products, this one is being developed from beginning to end by the people who will use it. Our network of urban cyclists are helping us decide everything, from design to name. We're calling this experiment Product of the People.


This quantitative data is priceless for the process of creating our next product. Equally valuable is the qualitative data. Many of you chimed in through comments and direct emails with brilliant feedback and ideas. Some ideas included mounting the bike light to the bottom of the saddle, integrating the light with the seat post, or making a light that extends and collapses so your bike rack or pannier do not cover it up. These are rad ideas for future projects.

Let us know what you think of these designs in the comments. Next week we’ll have refined versions for you to vote on.
