We got some intial pictures back on what we're going to receive from the factory for inspection in the next week or so. The first is the updated bike seat with a new gasket and reflectors, and the second is the packaging it will come in.
The updated bike seat looks great, but as we should have expected by now, nothing ever goes as smoothly as planned. We overlooked a couple of changes to the packaging that now need to fixed last minute before 1,000 of them are printed (minimum order size). Thankfully we caught it now rather than later! More pictures to come soon as we receive them.
We received more feedback from China on the new gasket material today. We should have some pictures by next week and receive another prototype the following week. This time they'll be printing our packaging material for the first time as well. Lots of great developments coming over the next couple of weeks!
Here is the message from Berkeley Sourcing Group:
"The bike seat factory will send out the sample (bike seat with gasket) and the printing sample on the day after tomorrow. They will be at our office this weekend. We will check them and take some pictures as soon as we get them. Then we will send them out to you soon."
Based on the pictures they sent, this latest material looks very promising. Fingers crossed, and more news to come very soon!
Remember, ALWAYS wear a HELMET!
