Sorry to bother you all again but i am at the stage in my multitool development for Brompton where i need some feedback from some Brompton users. Once again i have created an online form for people to fill out. I would be really appriative if you could take a small amount of time to fill them in.
Each online form has 4 concepts on, each with it's own individual feedback box.
Once again thank you for your time. If there are any problems with the form or if you have any questions please email me at Feedback@EJTannerDesign.co.uk so as not to take up board space and bother every user with emails.
As a side note, if any body is in the South Wales area and would be interested in doing some hands on user feedback with actual models and prototypes please get in contact on the above email address.
I've had a look and will be commenting via the survey feedback too. My main feeling is that the more traditional materials are ones that suit the brompton brand best - the idea of leather fits well with the use of Brooks saddles and leather saddlebags which has really come back into vogue recently along with spiffy designer clothing by the likes of Rapha.
But I also like the concepts where the tools are hidden away. I'm very much a minimalist and don't really like to have extra things bristling from the bars or frame of the bike spoiling it's pure lines so as a Bromptoneer, I feel the ones that fit into the seat-tube or the little cavities of the frame fold are the best solutions. It's nice to not be reminded of them every time you get on the bike (who wants to be reminded of the idea something might break or need adjusting this journey), but knowing that they are there should you need them and not in that other bag you forgot to clip to your bars this time makes for the best solution. It's about confidence and reliability.
Nice job on the concepts - lovely to see some marker visuals too (I trained in Graphics - though it's years since I've had the Magic markers and layout pad out - It's all photoshop for me these days!)
