Testing Tubes

It has now been a couple of weeks testing the milele tubes in Kenya. We have lined up a good group of test riders through the sacco (bicycle taxi union) who have been eagerly riding the tubes for the past couple of weeks. The test riders come from a number of backgrounds and use their bicycles in different ways. We have some testers who use their bicycles solely to commute to and from work, sometimes carrying their wife on the rear passenger seat.

Great initial meetings with our local partners!

After two great meetings with our partners, the Trans-Nzoia Boda Boda (TBB) Sacco, we have met with a number of boda boda riders and mechanics that are going to be testing our tubes. Our first more formal meeting lasted over three hours while we discussed our progress over the past year, our goals moving forward and our plan to test our tubes on a number of boda boda throughout Kitale. They also remembered the two boda boda racers that we unsuccessfully tried to track down last summer.
