After starting your own company, have you had a free moment to just do nothing? Ryan Sher: Yes, but I usually find myself thinking about ideas for ads, graphics, or products. Since we are still in the beginning stages, there are constantly things to plan out, or research.
What parts do you make? Ryan Sher: As of now the team is riding the first prototypes of the Pandora frame. We are waiting on final samples of the frames, also prototypes of our handlebars and forks. The team has a lot of input on all the products that we’ll produce, so we won’t be limited to anything. We have also begun specking out our first line of complete bikes.
