Here is the website of one of the imitations of Pacific Carryme.
The layout and some photos on their website are directly copied from the website of Hometec Technology Inc., the distributor of Pacific Cycles' bicycles in Taiwan!
However, George Lin, the boss of Pacific Cycles said, "None of the bikes of Pacific Cycles for which we have applied for patents since 1990:
If someone wants to copy your product, there's no way to prevent from this even you have applied for a patent. However, the pattern of copying is rare in the bicycle industry because no one can survive by this."
- A bike of Pacific Cycles needs more than 10 months from making to manufacture, so each series is unique.
- There're so many technologies used on a bike from design to manufacture which the competitors cannot copy.
Sustainable development: George Lin think that making bikes is making products for environmental protection and energy saving. Their enterprise has a slogan, "One more bike, one less car".
