How to cure hiccups

OK, so it may (or may not) be obvious that the delivery dates for the bikes just changed a little. If you pre-ordered a bike you should have received an email letting you know about the delay. Long story short - there was a bit of a logistics snafu - BUT the Gypsy frames are finally winging their way to the USA, or should I say sailing.

Starting a small business has its ups and downs, many times there are situations that can't be helped and are completely out of our control. But on the bright side, the frames are confirmed on their way, rather than the promises that they'll be picked that came from our previous freight forwarder. 

This little hiccup helped me (re)learn that my philosophy of working with small companies is the right one - my previous freight forwarder was a big multinational, asking for a small shipment meant that I was being pushed to the back of the queue behind more profitable shipments. 

Over the next couple of weeks I have a blog post planned on why we do business with smaller companies, family operations and people I trust.

In the mean time I'll be updating the Vagabond page as well with the catalog photo's we took over the weekend, I've been really pleased with the way it rides, but there are a few tweaks that need to happen before production.
