I have good news and bad news. The bad news is that this week’s post will be pretty much incomplete. I have been trying to get a hold of the company that touts that they have created the best commuter bike ever but I have gotten nothing but radio silence.
The good news is that I’ve picked up a “sponsor” who is willing to give us a discount on coffee. Yes, coffee -God’s gift to computer geeks, college students and long haul truckers. Gloria Jeans Coffee is giving bike commuters a 15% discount on coffee purchases until the end of May and let me tell you, their coffee is excellent! Simply click on the link below and enter the coupon code: “bikecommuters” at check out to get your discount.
And now back to your regularly scheduled post:
This ad has been peppering my Facebook feed for a while, its claim seems to be to good to be true so it had me intrigued. The Fortified Bicycle website states that the bike comes with rust proof paint and chain, security bolts, weather proof saddle, puncture resistant tires, a U-lock AND it is also Theft Proof. All for $399!, Really????
What is the catch? Well, the $399 is for a single-speed with no accessories and no theft guarantee. Aha! but the theft guarantee pricing ranges from $100 for one year to $200 for three years. It is still not a bad deal.
I wanted to get more details about their “Fine Print” but I got no “love” from their customer service email address. I will do a follow up post after I get my questions answered and maybe I’ll purchase their single-speed bike so I can do a review of the bike.
