Building our dream R&D workshop

May 14, 2021

We’ve been busy over the past few weeks… building our dream R&D workshop!

Our office at the Future Business Centre, a hub for startups across Cambridge, has been a great place to grow the team and prepare for the launch of our first batch of FLIT-16s. But, with our next batch of ebikes on its way, our engineers needed a bit of extra room to service the bikes and explore new ideas.

Our new workshop is a large industrial unit not far from the Future Business Centre (about a 5 min cycle) – the perfect blank canvas for us!

Here are some photos as we transformed the empty space into our dream R&D workshop:

The before:

You can see what we mean by blank canvas!

Work in progress:

Outside our new workshop
Stage 1: chaos, boxes everywhere
Stage 2 – Boxes moved, time to celebrate – team lunch in the sun
Stage 3 – bench building time
Stage 4 – benches built, slightly more organised chaos
Stage 5 – setting up prototyping equipment

The after:

Stage 6 – workshop complete! 
Stage 7 – obligatory team photo

We hope you’ve enjoyed our snaapshot tour of our new R&D workshop! We’re excited to service ebikes and start developing new ideas here. 

We’ll be adding the finishing touches to FLIT-16s here over the next few weeks, ready for delivery! We will be selling these bikes exclusively to those on our waiting list, and we are selling to limited postcodes across the UK only (please check that we’re delivering to your area here). If you haven’t already, join our waiting list and we’ll let you know how to order yours!
