Has anybody else heard from Karl or Katie recently?
I'll see Marc who looks after their website at the New Milton Pedal Car Grand Prix tomorrow so I'll check with him to see if he's heard anything.

Hi Alan

Did you get a chance to speak to Marc on Sunday?  Did he have any Windcheetah info that you can share?

Marc is also awaiting a response. 
Sorry, I've had no response - getting a liitle concerned now to be honest. :(

Hi All,
Just to let you know Karl has been in touch today and he has been dealing with some personal issues which have created a bit of a backlog.
 
He will be in touch with everybody shortly and things are getting back to normal so hopefully those of you waiting for a Windcheetah will be enjoying blasting around on them soon!

Hello all.
Karl has just sent me a long e-mail that fully explains the reasons behind the lack of recent communication.
Sometimes life takes over and bike building has to take second place.
It is fully understandable and has just heightened my sense of anticipation.
It looks like I will be collecting my FRO in the next week or so and be on the road for most of the summer.
Thanks for all the Karl prodding from all concerned.
Mark

My Hypersport order will be 6 months old this week. Original estimate was 12-16 weeks. I'm taking a lot of verbal abuse from my wife for ordering so I hope orders get filled soon.

That sort of delay was usually known as the framebuilder calendar when ordering a custom upright, back in the day.

Ditto here!  Looking forward to my Windcheetah soon!  Thank you all for helping to keep me grounded and positive.  You were correct!

So,  I'm wondering did Mark get his FRO in "a week or so"?  I backed off for a month.  Sent Karl an E-mail this past Monday.  No response.  No further word from Karl since his E-mail to all in July.  Any thoughts?

I haven't heard any more from Karl - I know he was having a few personal issues which he's hopefully in the process of sorting out.
