T-Newsletter #1, October 2012
Welcome to the first T-Cycle Newsletter of the brand new website! Boy, time has flown by, hasn't it? Rest assured, we're still local folks, working hard and dedicating ourselves to making the best parts for your recumbent that you can find.
For those of you who are curious about what we've been up to these past few years, you can check out our brand new Facebook page! Our timeline is growing and we invite you to post pictures of your favorite bikes and trikes!
More recently, we've introduced a plethora of new products and tweaks to our old products. Just in time for cold weather riding, we've revamped the way we think about Windwrap Fairings. Now, don't worry, they still kick massive amounts of butt, but now they are available in Complete Fairing Kits. This saves you the hassle of having to match up fairing and mount. For those of you, however, that are still more adventurous, we do offer à la carte fairings and mounts. In addition to reorganizing our packaging, we've also rolled out two new versatile mounts (XT and OnePoint) and a new full coverage fairing (WGX). New features include:
The beloved XT Mini Fairing now comes with an all-new mount. The already easy to use and universally mountable setup just got an extra dose of easiness and universality!
- 30 seconds to put on or remove for super easy end-of-trail packup
- Easier, wider range angle and fit adjustments for all bikes and trikes
- Collapsible frame design to optimize storage and shipping space
With the new hardware, putting on, taking off, and dialing-in your exact fairing fit is a breeze. (The kind of breeze that your feet will know nothing about this winter!)
We took our OnePoint Mount back to the drawing board. As more and more people discover the fun of triking, we decided it was time to rethink our most popular fairing mount. With a little elbow grease and a lot of brain juice, we've remade the OnePoint Mount into a single, universal option that comes standard with fold-forward (and we dropped the price by $50 to boot!). The heart of it all is a versatile new friction hinge that includes overlapping, independent forward and back stops that allow for precise configurability.
The new OnePoint includes:
Smooth fold-forward for easy entry and exit
Ability to set range of motion or lock mount in place
Wide range, super easy setup
The OnePoint Mount is now a single, more versatile system with built-in fold-forward capabilities and it all comes with a smaller price tag. You are quite welcome.
Presenting: The WGX Fairing. In the northern hemisphere, winter is fastly approaching, which brings with it unfavorable biking weather. That's where the WGX Fairing comes in. Wider, longer, deeper, and classier than the classic GX fairing, the WGX is great for going faster and unbeatable for keeping warm and dry. Based on the versatile GX shape, the WGX is:
- 3.5in (9cm) wider
- 3in (7.5cm) longer
- 2.5in (6.5cm) deeper
You feel more "in" a WGX Fairing than you do behind it! The WGX is suited for both bikes and trikes, and fits everything from Vision LWB bikes to an ICE Adventure. Nothing protects you better.
All items are available now. All Windwrap fairings are custom built to order, and lead times can vary, so order today for the earliest delivery!
Be sure to check back next month, as we've got another surprise coming out that will be sure to hold your attention...
