The ‘Maggie Waggie’ was a product exploration aiming to create better options for young families to encourage flexible and efficient mobility about the city without the need for mass transit or a motor vehicle. The prototype was created from a salvaged 1979 Workmen Industrial Tricycle discovered on the roof of a Curtis Bay bicycle collector. The bike’s original use likely being for internal deliveries about Baltimore’s historic industrial complexes.
J Neal is one of our close friends from Baltimore and Magnolia (Maggie) was the first kid of our friends. She is spritely, full of energy and life and is by far one of the coolest kids we know. The Maggie Waggie is a tribute to her exceptional awesomeness.
The Maggie Waggie is made with safety in mind. The box/child seat is made of an FSC Extira MDF product chosen for dimensional stability and capacity for a smooth milling process. The box was design with finger joints so as to avoid any mechanical fasteners.
Additionally, all updated bike mechanics were custom machined. The new seat cushion is made of antimicrobial foam, which is wrapped in sunscreen fabric and assembled at a local furniture upholstery shop. Further the design took into consideration child safety in the event of the tricycle tipping or rolling over.
