It's a great thing to see (especially in your own backyard) and a huge step in the right direction. High five America!
Cities all over the US are investing in more bike lanes and bike-friendly thoroughfares, making it that much easier for bike commuting to take a foothold. Not a moment too soon, with the growth that bike-share programs have seen over the last couple years. Apparently bicycling in the US is on the rise!

Our next shipment of Companion Bike Seats arrives at the Port of Long Beach, CA tomorrow. It will take a couple of days to clear customs and get delivered to us from the port, but we expect to be shipping out bike seat orders again as early as February 20th!
Great news! We renegotiated with the factory earlier this week and they agreed to lower their minimum order size to 500, which means we can move forward immediately. We placed our next order this morning and they will start making bike seats again next week.
If all goes well, we'll have the next 500 Companion Bike Seats available by mid-February!
These next 500 bike seats will all come with a black frame and seat cushion, and will include the locking stash-box.
We officially launched our Kickstarter campaign today for Companion Bike Seats! Our first hundred bike seats were successfully delivered late in September, and we've since sold out of them all. Great news, except that when we went back to our factory to place another order for more bike seats, they increased the minimum order size from a hundred to a thousand.
