Well, some of you should be receiving a yellow manila envelope of joy in the mail soon, if you haven’t already – all of our T-shirts went out! Jackets are going out next! Local folks, if you can make it out to 303 Vodka in Boulder [map] this Thursday (May 3) at 7:00, I’ll have your shirt/jacket and the prototype of the High Roller for you to ride in person! (this will also coincide with the start of the Boulder Cruiser Bike Ride!) If you can’t make it, let me know and I’ll drop in the mail or swing it by.
Now, the big stuff. I know you’re all anxiously awaiting your High Roller to ride, and it won’t be long. We’ve had a bit of a shock that our hub supplier announced that it would take them 2 months just to get the front hub! We’re fervently working with them to see what we can do to expedite the process. The hub is a thing of beauty and will be an amazing mechanism so I know we’ll be thrilled with the end result, we’re just trying to get it sooner.
All other aspects are moving along FAST. The rear wheel molds are near completion, frame tooling is being made (for bends, welds, bending and stamping), and part orders are being placed. The tentative date to receive our first production sample is May 20th.
If all goes well, as it stands we’re looking at getting delivery of the production units in July. If all does not go well, we’ll just roll with the punches and keep pushing forward. Of course I’ll keep you updated as we go.
As always, if you have any questions at all, please drop me a line.
