Lillian (5.5 🦄 ) Built a Backseat Prototype For Mum’s New Electric Cargo Bike

Featured

What do you do, when you want to go «Whee!» on mum’s new bike, but your back seat has yet to be delivered? Can Lillian (5.5 🦄 ) prototype the back seat instead?

Yes. She. Can!

Lillian (5.5 🦄 ) built a do-it-yourself saddlebag backseat prototype on mum’s new electric cargo bike. Because that’s how we roll our no-code prototyping in our family.

A Good Idea For The Prototype

Dad’s original idea was to fasten the saddlebags with gaffer’s tape. Lillian (5.5 🦄 ) had a better idea: String!
So we used string which leaves no marks on the bike.

Black Gaffer’s tape, 8 long strips, 8 short strips (bought: Jernia Carl Berner by Mommo and Lillian (5.5 🦄 )
Lillian (5.5 🦄 ) had a better idea: String! So we used string which leaves no marks.

Questions About Electric Cargo Bike Rental

What did daughter and father learn today? The answer comes further down, but first a few questions to you, dear reader. If you can answer yes to one of these questions, please send me a flag signal ola {@} olavea.com.

  1. Does your city have an electric cargo bike rental service like we have in Oslo, Norway?
  2. Do you have an electric cargo bike from a rental service? (And maybe you have a few tips for us.)
  3. Do you own an electric cargo bike? (And maybe you have a few tips for us.)
  4. Have you built a bike related prototype? (And maybe you want to share your story with us.)
  5. Have you guessed what movie an/or actor inspired this sketchnote of Lillian (5.5 🦄 ) sitting on the saddlebags?

Today Dad Learned About No-Code Prototyping


-Spend more time on building the actual prototype
-Spend less time on making drawings and notes about the prototype before building it. Because we never got time to measure ONE single thing.
