Dear Roots Radicals:
I know it's been a little while since we updated you, but there's been a
lot going on at Xtracycle and XAccess.
To start with, we have an amazing holiday special on FreeRadicals -- two
for one. That's two FreeRadicals for $299. This deal only applies in the
month of December, and only for Xtracycle Friends and Family. So get one
for your mom and dad, girlfriend, boyfriend. But speak up soon -- there's
only two weeks left to place your order.
Second, Xtracycle will be offering a chance for a limited number of
individual investors to buy Xtracycle shares. This round of investment will
begin in the new year. Due to legal restrictions, we can only send a
limited of investment prospecti at one time. Please inquire with Kipchoge
) if you are interested in investing.
Bay Area Roots: Xtracycle will be out in force at the San Francisco
Bicycle Coalition Party this Sunday night. Come on down! (SFBC WinterFest,
this Sunday, 5-11pm at the SOMARTS Gallery, 934 Brannan) The party is free
for SFBC members. Buy membership at the door for a special $20. Please
RSVP with me if you are interested in a pre-party gathering.
XAccess (the Xtracycle Access Foundation) has some important developments
as well. We have sent our director Adam French for a six-month stint in
Kenya. He has a desk, a truck, and a bed, thanks to our partner ApproTEC
(check out www.approtec.org). Together with ApproTEC's engineers, we are
enhancing and distributing the Extra Bike for the Kenya market. (The Extra
Bike is the low-cost version of the Free Radical.) Adam is learning
firsthand about transportation issues in Africa, and has met several folks
who may serve as ongoing advisors to XAccess in the future.
The XAccess web site is nearly complete. In the new year, you'll be able
to visit www.xaccess.org to check out pictures from Kenya and our other
projects. I'll send a quick update when the site is ready.
XAccess will also unveil a new membership program; for an annual
contribution, you'll be a participant in this exciting organization, using
Xtracycle technology to provide transportation and income opportunities to
those in the developing world. I hope you'll set aside part of your giving
budget for a contribution to XAccess in the new year.
Lastly, Xtracycle would like to welcome Desmond and Ben to the Nevada City
office! Desmond (a woman) has taken on responsibilities of the office, and
Ben (man) arrives from Europe, where he has led our European sales operation
for over a year. He will assist Kipchoge and Vange in US sales efforts.
Also, check us out in the current issue Men's Journal; they chose the
FreeRadical for their holiday buying guide.
Until next time, keep riding, and keep your soul together.
