Happy Friday everyone!
Hope all are doing well and staying warm. Here in Philly we're bracing for a little snow as we head into the weekend.
For this update I want to let everyone know we're on track and things looks good. Certain Liberty Trike electric parts are scheduled to depart on a big boat from Shanghai 2/2/2016 and that puts them here at our warehouse for final assembly the last week of February.
The bigger and more exciting news is that yesterday I was at Worksman to approve the final design for the frame and that looks amazing. Several changes were made that make the trike even better, stronger and more fun to ride.
I'm going to post a few videos below that I shot while there as I think they tell the story better. The demo in the video related to the kick shift is not very good so you'll need to trust me on that one that it's a very nice feature and intuitive. If you want to see more examples of a kick shifter like that you can find plenty of videos on YouTube. Overall though the Liberty Trike design turned out even better than we expected it to and I think everyone is going to really happy with the final design.
The trike you see in the video and pictures has not been painted yet but will be painted in black next week. We'll pick it up at the end of next week and post another video at that time showing you what it looks like all nice and fresh and brand new.
Our next steps here are to prepare for incoming shipments, to write the official manual, make safety stickers & decals and create custom packaging in the next 4 weeks.
Any questions shoot us an email anytime and we'll keep you posted as we continue moving everything along. We're still on track to have your Liberty Trikes shipping out before the end of March. Thanks as always for your continued support and patience.
Now it's time to buy the bread and milk and batten down the hatches. Bring on the snow!
