Concept CC Bike Wheel


The final prototype of my Concept Bike wheel which I will present to my peers and lecturers on Friday the 25th of January. I will post explaining its function later but this image is to primarily show the prototyping and my abilities. The rim was sourced from ebay as a standard 16″x1.75 steel bike wheel, the 2mm sheet steel bracket shapes have been fabricated by gas welding together 3 shapes, and the brackets are welded to the rim using MIG welding. The weld beads were then filled with P38 body filler and sanded, primed and sprayed with white refridgerator enamel based aerosol. The central Blue fan shape is a blue foam composite which has been laser cut and shaped by hand, then coated with emulsion, filler primer, and aerosol.



I have recently written a near 4000 word report titled; leadership & Group Dynamics In Context. Some may view this as an intimidating task, but after the first few pieces of background reading, and theory study, it really spoke to me. I was able to evaluate myself and although i always knew i was confident and able, i never really put myself in a leadership position. However after writing said report, performing experiments, and studying theory, I have learnt in confidence that i can lead, and with successful results. From now i will jump at these leading role opportunities, and embrace where it may take me! I encourage anyone to evaluate themselves, and really look at their abilities as member of a team, and an individual, improve your weaknesses and push your strengths..
