FLO Cycling - New Year Update
Hello everyone! I hope you all had a good holiday season and safely brought in the new year. I wanted to take a minute to update everyone on where we stand and what's to be expected in the coming months.
The factories are currently working on producing and testing our parts. If all of the factories hold to their promised dates, we should have our prototypes and be testing by early March. Once we are pleased with the results we will be off to the wind tunnel. We also anticipate this happening in March. At this time we will be able to show you a few shots of the wheels and release our specs.
If the factories keep their promises we should be offering our pre-order in late March. The pre-order will be on a first-come-first-served basis. What this means is that the first orders in will be the first orders shipped. After the pre-order, the first wheels should take a ride on the UPS truck in approximately 60-90 days. For example: pre-order ends March 31, wheels ship May 31 - June 30. The pre-order will guarantee you a set of wheels. Once the pre-order is over and normal sales begin, we will do our best to keep up with inventory. However, there may delays since we have to order our parts from Asia. Please understand.
We have also had a few people asking about the forms of payment we will accept. We will be using PayPal as our payment processor. If you have a PayPal account you can use that. If you do not, the cart will accept Visa, MaterCard, and American Express.
I hope this helps you understand where things currently sit. We are very excited about the coming months and can't wait to release more info. As always, questions and comments are more than welcome.
