Finally, almost all the back ordered neck rests got boxed, stamped and sent on their way, most to towns all over the US but also one to Ottawa and one to Singapore. While I haven't yet started shopping for a sandy beach on a tropical island, this small venture has really turned out to be fun. It's been a a great way to meet people all around the country and the world on line, and its been especially nice getting to work on the island with friends who own their own small businesses.
The large wrap-around rest for Dr Dave is just getting its cover finished and then it'll be off as well. This one's been an especially interesting challenge because if it works, it should be a neck stabilizer as well as a rest. Its taken much longer than I'd originally planned, and I'm really hoping he'll be pleased.
The new vertical curved prototype has had the latex pad installed and it's at Zubin's for a cover. I honestly don't know whether it'll be as good as, better than or just different from the horizontally curved ones I'm making now. Kirk Jones (Kirk511) in his benevolence has graciously agreed to serve as prototype tester, trying it on his new 700. So I'm shipping it off to him as soon as the cover's done and will see what he says. If he likes I'm thinking it'll be great to be able to offer folks a choice. I just think it looks neat.
Along with the TOT shirts and caps we're also got some other gear for the non-lycra bika crowd like Pen and me. They're called, "The finer recliner." They're the same style T-shirts, long and short sleeve wickable riding jerseys and caps as the TOT stuff, and like the TOT items they're all embroidered.
I love the logos that Andie has done. What's especially nice about them is that there's no minimum order, the tees, jerseys and caps all come in a rainbow of colors, there's NO minimum order, you can put your name or nickname on the sleeve and you can order the trike logo to match the color of your trike.
The prices for this gear are the same as for the TOT...no extra charge for coloring the trikes. I'll post colors and prices.Have a great weekend.
