Unfortunately we’re out of stock of the ceramic parts; we sold the last remaining stock a few months ago. We’ve always maintained a pretty consistent stock of all the associated replacement parts, so we’re still selling other items such as liner, ferrules, outer housing, etc.
The main trouble now is that I need to invest in loads more ceramic parts and my income has really dropped off since I’m not doing the bike rentals in Tenerife anymore. This is a sizeable investment (for me) and I’ll probably have to go the crowd-funding route now for this as my cash flow situation is not great at all.
It is a very small niche although I’ve always been able to sell the kits once I have manufactured the ceramic parts, so I think it’s worth continuing with. I suppose I should at least try. If not, it’ll essentially be the end of vertebrae unless I get some other source of funding (like a normal job). I’d certainly still like to continue selling Vertebrae brake and gear lines but we are kind of stuck at the moment.
There is usually several months manufacturing lead time, so this will likely not happen before the end of the year. I’ll update this news/blog as I start to plan the crowdfunding video and organise the launch date…
In the meantime, if you’d like to be put on a waiting list, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks very much,
