Some of you will recall our earlier post in which we asked you all to help us name the latest addition to the Joby family, namely our little fixie. We also alluded to the fact that our engineers would be performing a bit of a transformation on our two-wheeled wonder.
We’re pleased to announce that both the naming and the modifications were a smashing success. One of our engineers swapped out our fixie’s tubes and handlebars for Gorillapod Focus segments! And the pedals were transformed into Ballheads for the SLR-Zoom. The finished product is quite a work of art.
Of course, such an art piece needs a name, and you guys came through with some awesome suggestions! We loved your creativity. Ultimately the judges went with the name suggested by Matthew Harris: Jobixie the Fixie.
Jobixie is now on display at our Joby Inspired Gallery in Hayes Valley in San Francisco. Stop by and see her before October 11. You can also check out additional artwork by some very talented designers.
