Who Rides a Faraday?
Our awesome Kickstarter backers have purchased their 2013 Porteurs for a wide range of reasons – from staying active as a baby boomer, to sweat-free commuting, to simply increasing cargo load and distance for errand-running. Below, we’ve highlighted a few responses from around the country:
Baby Boomers: “I am 63 years old and I want to enjoy biking as I always have – I look forward to the excellent assist the Faraday will give me! I am a true baby boomer that will stay active for a long time!” – Jean from Portland, OR
Conscious Commuters: “I bought my Faraday so I can ride sweat-free to work, my bag on my bike and looking stylish. I have always loved functional city bikes and love that the Faraday has built-in lights that I don’t have to remove when I stop or remember to turn on/off or recharge. I also love supporting a new type of Eco-conscious transportation, one of the few believable ways we can have more people in less space with less carbon footprint.” – Darius from San Francisco, CA
Errand Runners: “I purchased the Faraday firstly for around-town riding, so I can run longer errands, with more cargo, in a larger range without worrying about hills or bus schedules…my hope is that after I get more comfortable on my bike, I can join my husband and father and brother on the longer, more challenging day tours they take.” – Valerie from Portland, OR
Design Lovers: “All my hardcore design/biker friends scoff at eBikes, but finally said, ‘ok, you can get that one!’” –John from Seattle, WA
