The coolest bike light project has now been closed.Everybody from the Velodroom team continues working on awesome projects at Flydog Marine, Redfish and Hedgehog. On a side of all those projects, we could not do Velodroom just because we wanted it.
To execute well, we needed to focus on Velodroom. To produce VD lights without making compromises in quality, we needed a reasonable budget. To raise funds we had to work on the project and only on the project. To make sales we had to sell. And we needed time, with 100% commitment. This we failed.
What did we learn?
Always make what people want. People do want a light like Velodroom. We have seen it from e-mail sign-ups. New “where can I get it” and “shut up and take my money” requests are rolling in every day. Even now, years after the campaign, there are bikers needing it — wanting it.
