Dear PodRide Supporter,
This is a short and quick update.
The design and optimization for manufacture work continues. When we first started the digitization of the design we looked around for a professional bike designer/engineer to work with us. Unfortunately, all the best designers that we spoke with were booked up with projects for the next 12 months or more, so it was not possible to find a pro that was available to work with us without having to wait.
In the past couple of weeks we have been in discussions with a highly experienced bike designer/engineer that currently works on the design of leading European ebikes. It is yet to be confirmed, but we are hopeful he will be able to join our team in the near future to both increase our speed to market, and to guide us forward with his extensive manufacturing experience. We will keep you posted on this.
We are still moving forward with our plans to raise investment and will be advising further details regarding this asap.
We are aware this is a pretty light update. Once we have the funding in place, we will step up the project pace and details in our updates, so please bear with us.
