There's a lot going on here at VO, mostly working on new designs that I can't write about yet. But I thought you might be interested in the following updates.
The Campeur racks are finally in production. We changed the mounting hardware from flat struts to rods (similar to those used on Nitto touring racks). This change was based on your feedback. Unfortunately getting this hardware made caused major delays, but you guys convinced me that it was a better mounting system. I'll try to arrange a special sea shipment as soon as production is finished. These are all hand welded so it takes some time to make them.
Our fancy Grand Cru chainguards are also in production The second version, which works with a front derailleur, is now being prototyped. If the initial prototype works as well as we hope we may have them by late fall; if design changes are required it'll obviously take longer.
I think we've been pretty good about keeping stuff in stock this spring, after the low inventory disaster of winter. But now we are starting to run out of a few thing. We have two containers on the way and everything should be back in stock in a few weeks.
Here is one of the Campeur frames we're in the process of building up.
