[IC] GMK Vélo | Indefinitely delayed
« on: Mon, 07 December 2020, 10:19:05 »


257272-0





Hi everyone, I have decided to indefinitely delay GMK Vélo. The reason for this is that this set is not really something I want to pursue at this time, and just does not fall in line with what I want do to currently. I have some other projects I am way more excited about than this, and will be sharing those very soon! I might come back to this set on a later date, so for everyone who was genuinely interested in this set, please don't lose hope! I appreciate every single one who has filled out the IC forms, left a positive comment and overall just enjoyed the set, I really do!



IC FORM



Inspiration

Lovely color combo!

I'm assuming the last one is intended to be done in UV-printing (which GMK does do; see GMK Yugo's novelty bars and GMK Polybius).

It's not mentionned anywhere that's why i'm saying this. Also i kinda doubt of the doability of the handlebar novelty, some wires might be too thin. Might have to confirm with GMK

Nice idea. A kit with all the coloured keys in white would be a nice addition. Gives the flexibility to convert the set into a BoW, which should increase its flexibility.

At that point, I would argue for a gradient kit to be used with a WoB set.

Actually very interested in this. A BoW set with a bit of yellow/orange hue as accent? I'm down, finally a set that'd match my setup at home perfectly. Consider 40s?

Any consideration for a 40's kit?

In before "GMK Autozone"

I don't think that gradient quite works being crammed all the way over to the left. You don't even have a yellow key on every row.
Maybe stick it in the middle? It probably wouldn't work on Alice layouts then but gradients rarely do. Or move it over a couple of columns at least.

Also 40's please.

is... is that a 1.75u backspace in base kit?  :-*
Just toss in a 1.25u tab and I would be very happy.

Those gradient novelties are so dope, but for the love everything cool and aesthetic in the world, PLEASE make a space bar with that same gradient design on the left side of the cap.

Interesting idea, but I find the angle of the gradient to be a little too acute and placed too far leftwards to be aesthetically appealing. To me the remaining white space on the left side seems a little too cramped. My opinion though, good luck with the IC.

[Copypasta from what I wrote in the form:]
I don't think this set needs accents. I'd do things to have the striped novelties in the base kit though, even just a single one windows or enter key. Love the set.
It'd be nice to have an option to have the really cool striped novelties separate from the other "bycicle" themed ones, speaking as one who really does not care for bikes but absolutely loves the color scheme.
Oh, and I wish someday 6u spacebars will eventually make it to basekit but I know I'm in the minority (sigh).

@oggi - Nice set! I've spent more than my share of time in and around bike shops, and I appreciate your nod to the Badger's 1985 win (most recent French champion!) and the Peugeot-specific Mangalloy steel (HLE). The 'skeet' key is genuine awesomeness!
