Are you a lawyer or something?
Here you go, matter of "factly".
It is a waste of bandwidth though.

Subject: Bike Friday: Get your friends on a Friday before price rise
Dear Bike Friday owner,
PSSST! Here's a once-only last chance for you and
your friends to buy a Bike Friday at a 2004 price.
We’re about to release some exciting new additions
and improvements to our range of singles, tandems
and recumbents for 2005. New designs and new materials,
while making the personal service you tell us is so
rare these days, even better.
We’ve been holding our prices down for many months
against the rise of the Yen and the Euro, but we
could not continue to do so and still offer you the
product and attention you have come to expect.
If you look on the web you'll see that all models
have had to rise by as much as $450, or 22%.
But wait … You and your friends have a 2-week
window to buy a new Bike Friday at a 2004 price.
ORDER A CUSTOM BIKE FRIDAY BY JANUARY 22, 2005 AT
THE CURRENT 2004 PRICE. SAVE UP TO $450.
Mention magic code 1150.
Call Dave, Kurt, Walter, Steve or Peter now on
You'll be pleased to know that Bike Friday is still
the #1 choice of serious cyclists who want their
bicycles on hand when they travel - for business
or pleasure. We both know it's because a Bike Friday
really isn’t a ‘folding bike' at all.
It’s a performance bike you can take with you,
around the block or around the world.
And as an owner, you're in great company - look at the
famous folk who own a Bike Friday:
* Famous English Voice of the Tour de France Phil
Liggett - Pocket Rocket Pro
* Guinness World Record holder (‘Most Traveled Man
By Bicycle’) Heinz Stucke - Pocket Llama
* Twice Race Across America ultramarathon cycling
champ Lon Haldeman - Air Friday
* Cycling authorities Ed Pavelka and Fred Matheny of RoadBikeRider.com
- Pocket Rocket Pros
* Human Powered Vehicle champion Rob English -
* ‘The Winningest American’ Davis Phinney -
* A 7’1” NBA Basketball star who must remain
nameless - New World Tourist
So, what will you and your friends do on a Friday
in 2005? Call us at 1-800-777-0258 before January
22, to own a new 2005 Bike Friday - it's like having
a New World Tourist (or any other Bike Friday) at
the 'Old World Price'.
