Version 2 of our bike is called Wombat. The significance of Wombat lies in design process, where the integration of each subsystem was considered holistically for the first time. In this version, there was a clear relationship between each component of the bike, which lead to a better understanding of the function and contribution of each component.

Blacksmith was originally built by a team of final year engineering students for their Final Year Project at Monash University. This formed Version 1 of the bike and the foundation of MHP. In order for Blacksmith to be competitive, its design was further revised for better performance and to address safety requirements. The completed design – incorporating the modifications made from Version 1 – is referred to as Version 1.5.
