I see the Lotus is on your website and sold out in all three colors. Did you sell out the original offering or is that just a way to put on a placeholder? I don't even need a 16" bike, but the Lotus looks so nice.

This is a placeholder on our website. We will have them in stock in late May.

Any updates on the 20in wheeled prototype that you could share? 🤔

Itís being built right now. I should have photos of it in a couple of weeks. Itís taking a bit longer because we are making temporary jigs to hold everything before the permanent jigs are produced

That's great news that its moving forward so quickly. On the question of tire clearance (width), what did you decide for your final design?

no bosses for rim brakes simply because they are unattractive. The dropouts are vertical, so an eccentric bottom bracket can be used with a IGH

I am not sure yet. Path of that depends upon the future of Trumpís China tax and part on the currently-insane shipping costs (up by over 100%)
