It has been a while since we've posted an update, but don't worry about it! We'd rather show you something than spending valuable time talking about it. That's an engineers mindset :)
I personally "stalked" Gates, who produces our belts, every single day, because they have been the hardest order to complete. I'm happy to finally communicate that they are going to be delivered on the 15th!
While I'm writing frames are undergoing the welding process.
The rest is ready to be assembled.
On August 20th, we believe our container will start its journey! Crono, safe and sound, direct to our warehouse. (Just buzzing to have all of them)
I'm working hard to make sure that deliveries begin in September as I promised, and I firmly still believe this is realistic.
I still need help from you, we need to decide the special custom Headset cap.

What do you think about the packaging?
We are happy to invite you (firstly for free Scottish Whiskey) to Eurobike. P88 due to the closing application for a stand (last Feb) will be there as a learning travel. We will bring one Crono with us so feel free to pop in and have a look and try it out. Our stand will be FG-B9/4, email us if you want to meet up there :)
I'm prototyping another model for P88, a hybrid model, I'll show you a drawing soon. Meanwhile, another project is starting, I've always been skeptical about electric bicycles, as I always thought "They're for lazy people" or "I would rather buy a scooter", however after my Dad's accident I changed my mind. A little help could be crucial for someone who has a physical problem and wants to approach cycling regardless. So I promised to my dad that I was going to start this project. Eurobike will be a great opportunity to catch up with a lot of new ideas and inspirations and I'm so excited to meet a German start-up company there which has a similar vision to P88. They have a minimal design with internal cabling, low maintenance, no visual impact, and not an electric "BIKE", but a BICYCLE with some powered assistance when you need. (I don't want to create another electric BIKE) can't wait to give you more info but at the moment it's a confidential approach.
I just went to visit my Dad, and he is standing again! He really appreciates all your comments and he is really motivated by them. He wanted me to say thanks to all of you for the support :)
