  1. Hi everyone! And thank you all for your recent contributions to this thread. Reading through on the recent comments, there are quite a few aspects to all of this, so please accept that I won't be acknowledging most of you directly for your particular points - but I will hopefully cover them all off. Anything I do miss, please let me know - I am making a concerted effort to stay back online, and not just for this thread. I would like to start by apologising for my recent absence - or rather my lack of response to this thread (due to my absence). Some of you have been in contact with me (or Chrissi) and are aware of the challenges that we have faced trying to release our new products while managing a sudden supply chain issue due to this whole virus thing. That is our problem though, not yours, so let's get to the responses... To start with I would like to say that I am emailing @bcarp in parallel to this thread to ensure that we cover off all of the options that we have, between Roll.nz and One More Wheels (the Australian retailer) to resolve this. Yes I am a little late to the party, but that only means that I am now doubly focused on resolving the issue. One thing that I would like to clear up first is that the cover supplied to @bcarp is not "old-stock". And I can say this with 100% conviction, as we do not hold any significant quantity of pre-made product. If anyone wants to know what our stock looks like, it is this... These are rolls of the Neoprene that the EUC Bodyguards are made from. Late last year we invested in more equipment (cutting machinery in this case) to allow us to offer more (custom) colour options for our customers. So right now, as I type this, anyone who has ordered (or is discussing an order) should know that the Bodyguard that they order will be cut, stitched and finished according to their requirements - including personalisation, alterations (eg. for mudguards) or anything else that they require.This includes our "wholesale customers" who may not choose "tailored solutions" but instead request a significant volume of units from across our range. TLDR... Anything that we have that may be considered "old stock" is still an uncut series of pieces on a roll of neoprene. This also extends to the "pockets" used to secure the Bodyguards to the bottom of the wheels... The initial release (in October '19) was Kevlar and did have issues. But this was resolved in November '19 and is no longer an issue. There has been a few different materials used for the 16X pockets since then, but all of them have a "leathery" inside which grips to the 16X shell as is intended. Regardless of all that, i am working with OMW and @bcarp to resolve this issue with (hopefully) a satisfactory outcome for all parties. Enough said for now... I am sure that either @bcarp or myself will provide an update shortly
  2. You may be interested to know that we (Roll.nz) now have Original EUC Bodyguards for the Gotway Nikola, MsuperX and Monster...
  3. Try recalibrating your lift sensor.
  4. Okay everyone, you have been asking for it, so here it is... Available now to pre-order (for shipping in March), EUC Bodyguards for the Gotway Monster, MsuperX and Nikola! For details check out the Roll.nz website.
  5. @Lefteris - you are local, are you able to provide any comment on this?
  6. Not that unusual... And we have been looking for something suitable, but also generic - a number of countries have specific (and different) requirements. Hopefully we will find something suitable...
  7. Just Photoshop my head onto the body of a young Arnold Schwarzenegger... No one will notice any difference! Perhaps this one (with an EUC Bodyguard being stretched between my hands)...
  8. Unless you cut it using a laser! Did I mention to anyone that I am buying a laser cutter?
  9. Dude... You rock!!! Once you get your Bodyguard, just re-roll the duct tape - I'm pretty sure it can be reused! Please also note that we don't charge any extra for the Stealth Version... We just ship the cut-out circles with the cover and you can duct tape them back into place!!! (which is recycling, since you have so much of it now). And, yes... We have found a solution to ensure the pedals still "stick"!
  10. We have chosen pretty tough neoprene, so weakness shouldn't be an issue. Our next prototype will have a few less holes, but we do want to expose the LED for those of us who like exposing themselves. And yes, we are definitely focussed on finding the best quality zip for this Bodyguard.
  11. Thanks Meep! When we are prototyping Chrissi plays around with colours (partly to use up scraps and partly to help to see what going on). For the final version, I'm thinking we might offer colour either on the edge or in the centre "wifebeater" panel... With other custom configurations, of course, for those really keen.
  12. You know that there is one really easy answer to this dilemma... Buy both! With Bodyguards too, of course.
