Eddie Johnson loves his Bike Friday folding bike. Bike Friday is a Eugene, Oregon based coop that make these ingenious bikes. It was perfect collaborative process getting the vest pack to Eddie that he wanted. Here is what he wrote to me upon receiving it:
The vest pack is great! It makes for a great cycling
pack plus works well off the bike too! Once this get
'discovered' by others, it should be a hit in the
cycling commuter world. Thanks for for the extra
pockets. I didn't notice them until later. Very well
executed. The pack feels great while riding and is
very stable. BTW, could you forward the pics you took
of me, the vest pack and my bike? I want to send one
to Bike Friday to put in their "What do you do on a
Friday" gallery. I also picked up a pair of your arm
warmers from Montano Velo to keep in my vest pack for
those chilly rides. Take care Nan and keep innovating.
Speaking of Bike Fridays showing up at the market, Jennifer Michels and her man Eric Berlow took theirs to Italy. Read about it on the Bike Friday website.

Nan will be at the Temescal Farmers Market three times in the month of June. Stop by on June 15th and 22nd to pick up your finished knickers, raincoats, vest packs and more. Send your friends to be fitted for custom wool bike knickers. Plan ahead and get a great deal on last seasons waxed cotton raincoats at 25% off.
You may see Raven picking up sprouts at the end of the market. Ask her about her yoga class schedule, how her chickens are liking their luxury suite coop or how to start an apricot tree from seed.
