That was the original plan for the contest, but Privat looked into it a bit and found that whatever design won would more than likely have to be changed for safety requirements. As this is a 'design challenge,' whoever won would then have to be tied up in the constant redesign process until they can get it finalized. The premise was a fun thing for our readers to do, and not require a huge time commitment outside of whatever they wanted to devote to the design itself, we thought the better of it.
It is somewhat of a shame, because Jon's wheel design is awesome (I think), but if you plan to be at Waterfest, stop by the booth, and pick up a limited edition poster featuring the design.
