Pete and I first met Ben in 2015 when we were searching for factories to build our very first ebike prototypes. The following year we launched our first Indiegogo campaign which rocketed FLX into existence. Since then we've been working closely with Ben to bring the best electric bikes to life.
Pete runs our design and manufacturing division and has overseen the entire design of the Babymaker from it's conception about 2 years ago to today. I got the chance to return to China late last year, drop by one of our new production facilities and finally see in person the last couple Babymaker Betas come off the line.
Pete and I have both spent many years in China. It's a fascinating place. Enjoy the video.
Production is rolling along. Pete and I are brainstorming all possible hiccups to address in advance. There were some 'surprises' from our first campaign that slowed things down. Luckily we know to address these early on now.
The White House has stated we'll be facing quarantine until the end of April. We're still trucking along at HQ. Shop hands are working away to service any bikes that come our way. The rest of our support and operations team continue working from home.
