Tips A for Bike Designers • • • • • •

Don’t just design for yourself: think universal, ‘blue ocean’ Design & Engineer, everybody has good ideas (and Cad !) Build & Ride, repeat ! Cost & ease of manufacturing are important Use Standard parts if possible, but don’t be ruled by them Low cost bikes need good design too !

• Image + substance is important – especially in Blue Ocean

©Mark Sanders 2009

Tips B for The Bike Industry • • • • • • • •

Universal ‘design for all’ is profitable and ‘Blue Ocean’ Cross –fertilise people, and ideas from other industries Employ ‘Blue Ocean’ people – women, non-enthusiasts Avoid ‘not invented here’ – P+G get 50% new ideas outside Listen to new ideas from young designers – the future. Add both innovation & value, avoid ‘me-too’ commodities. Bike Shops for ALL ! Not intimidating, for enthusiasts only. Low cost ‘Supermarket bikes’ are an intro to cycling – design well - don’t dismiss their benefits to the industry. • Feel the Blue Ocean - Ride to work
