A great, short promo video showing off Companion Bike Seats, courtesy of Kitchen Productions. Suki is a long-time friend and has been a great supporter of Companion Bike Seats. This was shot on a bike path in North Hollywood with a series of great murals and paintings alongside. This is the first ride on the first bike seat from our first production run, couldn't have found a better back-drop. Thanks Suki!
The first shipment of bike seats arrived at our "warehouse" earlier this week. We spent the day prepping orders, which will be shipping out first thing next week!
Taken at Burning Man this year (thanks Star and Troy). This particular bike seat later provided transportation for a man who had just fallen out of the sky (not shown).
We received confirmation from our shipper this morning that our first hundred Companion Bike Seats have arrived in Los Angeles!
"Cargo is customs cleared and we are waiting for the container to get to the warehouse and unloaded so I can deliver."
It will still be another week or so before they arrive at our "warehouse" in Southern California, but we are absolutely still on schedule to ship out initial pre-orders during the first week of October!
Confirmation came early this morning: the first hundred Companion Bike Seats are on a boat headed across the Pacific as we speak! They were loaded and shipped out on Friday last week and will take two weeks to cross the ocean. From there, it's another two weeks to unload, clear customs, and get shipped to our "warehouse" in Southern California (a garage for the time-being).
All in, we expect to receive these first bike seats on Friday, Sept. 27th. We'll be reviewing and spot-checking the lot over the weekend, and will ship out initial orders during the first week of October!
The wait is almost over ... one more month to go. Watch out world, Companion Bike Seats are coming!
Remember, ALWAYS wear a HELMET!
