This week has also been a huge eye opener on the product side with a prototype now in production and a 4 week lead time to seeing the product that I have dreamt about for years. We have made up numerous cardboard models and have modified numerous elements of the design to ensure that they all interact well with each other. The cost of the prototype has come in 100% over budget which has made the decision to go much tougher.
But we have managed to get the cost to an affordable position and we are now weeks away from being able to show it to the world. See if you all like the idea that we have developed for what feels like years now, is received well by the triathletes.
We have managed to secure stand H16 at the Manchester bike & triathlon show at the same time so the coming weeks are going to be either life changing or a realisation that the product does not meet the needs of my potential customers. I hope it is the former as it will be heart breaking if all the long days and sleepless nights come to nothing but some amazing experiences.
