It's been an unusually warm few weeks for us here, and when the weather gets warm people start thinking about carrying absurd loads on their bikes. So just in the nick of time (or not -soon-enough for some) we're getting a shipment of SideCars, Hoopties, P-Racks. The boat docks tomorrow, so we hope to be shipping everyone's pre-orders at the start of April, just as soon as the container clears customs. Thanks for hanging in there!
To help whet your appetite here is a photo of an EdgeRunner plus SideCar loaded to the gills ( but not the tipping point, thanks SideCar!) with a pallet-worth of product: Three Yepp seats, ten Classic Kits, four KickBacks, and all sorts of other goodies. The guys at the warehouse know better than to ask where the truck is by now, but they had some doubts that I would be able to lash everything onto the bike. Despite their dire prognostications we made it back to the shop with no problems, albeit somewhat slowly due to the heft of the load and the slight incline between the warehouse and the shop. Score one for the SideCar!
For those of you who were lucky enough to score one of the first run of SideCars, and for those looking to get one soon, here's a quick usage tip: Use a CinchStrap as pictured to hold your SideCar in the upright position when you aren't using it to tote an unwieldy package. This makes you narrower and the CinchStrap comes in handy when you're picking up a delivery.
Stay tuned for more updates!
