The new Sidekick parts have passed muster. We are shipping retrofit kits to dealers and their customers who have Sidekicks in hand.

We will resume shipping the wheel next week. During the shipping halt we have continued to build parts, although we have not been assembling wheels until we were confident that we had the best solution in hand. Of course you want to know when your wheel will arrive. We are estimating that you will have to add at least three weeks to the original ship date. We certainly hope that we can improve on this.

We are thankful for your patience and understanding during this process. We hope you will find this little wheel is worth the wait. We look forward to hearing from you once you get a chance to give her a spin at your favorite local dealer. Where would we all be without them!

Stay tuned. We will be back with further updates as we have more information.
