Student designers say they were thrilled to be part of such an ambitious project.
"It was so easy to get tunnel vision and just design your part," said student Laura Birkhold. "Everyone brought a different experience and expertise to the table, without which we wouldn't have been able to build the bike."
Tandemonium taught the senior design team how to effectively communicate, work together and overcome problems, an invaluable experience for their future careers as engineers. They also learned how to work together even when difficult challenges came up.
"My favorite part was seeing it all come together in the end," added Birkhold. "For so long the bike was just a model on a computer screen or a list of parts we had to source. Seeing it actually in front of me and getting to ride it was the most rewarding experience of the whole project."
