Oguzhan Topgul from the United States is one lucky cyclist.
Like many of you, Oguzhan submitted an answer to a question we asked you about our bike personalization program. His one-of-a-kind response had the unique creativity we were looking for – the condition against which we judged all answers.
Oguzhan’s answer involved a mind-melting math calculation using the Rallon M-LTD enduro bike as his starting point. He determined that his personalized bike design would be just one of 2,300 quintillion combinations available on MyO (that’s 2.3 followed by 33 zeros). His incredible effort stood out as a clear winner.
This was the answer he sent us:
Let’s pick a bike, Rallon M LTD MyO
2 finish options
22 main frame color options
22 secondary frame color options
21 Orbea Logo color options
21 Rallon Logo color options
4 Advanced Dynamics logo color options
2 Font Wheel Axle options
4 Seatpost options
2 Shock options
4 custom text color options
So when we calculate 2222221214242*4 = 109,283,328.
So it means I have almost 110 million color and spec combinations I can create.
Also I can put custom text up to 10 characters
So with 26 English letters I can create
26^10 = 141,167,095,653,376 ten letter texts
26^9 = 5,429,503,678,976 nine letter texts
26^8 = 208,827,064,576 eight letter texts
26^7 = 8,031,810,176 seven letter texts
26^6 = 308,915,776 six letter texts
26^5 = 11,881,376 five letter texts
26^4 = 456,976 four letter texts
26^3 = 17,576 three letter texts
26^2 = 676 two letter texts
26^1 = 26 one letter text
When I add them up
141,167,095,653,376 + 5,429,503,678,976 + 208,827,064,576 + 8,031,810,176 +
308,915,776 + 11,881,376 + 456,976 + 17,576 + 676 + 26 = 146,813,779,479,510 different
text which will have 10 or fever characters
it is 146 trillion possible text in one text area
I have two text areas which will 146 trillion times 146 trillion equals to 2.155428585 x 10^28.
Which means I have around 21 Octillion possible text options
We’re almost there,
So we have around 21 Octillion text and 110 million color and spec combinations I can
The total possible Rallon M LTD combinations I can create with MyO program is around
“2310 Decillion” which is 2310 followed by 33 zeros. You can also call that “2.3 Undecillion”.
So when I personalize my Rallon M LTD, it will be one of 2.3 Undecillion bikes.
So awesome. Now it’s up to our winner to whittle down the 2,300 quintillion options and choose an Orbea model to personalize. That might just be the biggest challenge of all.
Thank you to everyone who participated and shared clever answers with us!
