Thoughts on the Shark from Nick

Nick Ginster, a Milwaukee area native, lives in Taiwan and has been helping us with another bike project. He recently visited Milwaukee to see family. We took the opportunity to meet Nick and have him check out the Shark. Here is what he wrote about his experience riding the Shark:

I put some miles on the Shark and I had quite a few others try it to get their opinion as well. On my first ride on the Shark I intended to go around the block, just to check it out. I was having so much fun I ended up riding for about 45 minutes. It is really smooth to ride and turning is a blast. One of the most impressive features is how fast you can stop. With your weight in the center of the bike, and lower, you can haul down to a stop extremely quickly. The low CG makes turning a breeze as well. Also, the easy seat adjustment made it very simple for other to try it out. The sizing is extremely flexible.

Nick is working with us to finalize the Schlick Shark for production. We look forward to working with him on this project and value his expertise.

Syd Tests Out Her Shark!

We had the adjustable bars lying around and after a couple of failed attempts finding something of the shelf these bars helped us dial in the fit for Syd. In fact, they will be staying on the bike until we can get a permanent set finished. No brakes yet! Careful, Syd!

Teecycle Tim Rides the Shark!

Tim from stopped by a bit ago and took a cruise on the Shark. We only had time for a short cruise but Tim enjoyed the bike and commented on the comfort.

Tim is an avid biker and commutes daily from the North Shore to Marquette. In his spare time he runs the web site. Here is a bit about Teecycle’s mission.

Tim says, “Your T-Shirt says a lot about you, whether you know it or not!”

From the Teecycle website:

When you buy off a rack in a retail chain, it says you have limited imagination, support giant corporate profits and have thousands of replicas. Who wants that?

When you own a Teecycle shirt, it says you have a unique one-of-a-kind item of clothing. It also says you care about the environment by keeping a perfectly usable item out of the landfill.

Each Teecycle shirt is hand-selected from rummage sales, thrift stores or donated by friends. Just not a rack in a nondescript department store.

Your purchase also supports the River Revitalization Foundation. $1 of each sale is donated to restore urban river trails and waterways in the Milwaukee area.

Thanks for checking out the Schlick Shark, Tim!
