Announcing the start of production
It’s been a long and hard journey, but today, we’re excited to announce that the production of Reevo will officially begin on the 28th of February. The team has been working hard sorting out components, kitting, and preparing the facility for the start of production. We invite you to check out some pictures and videos of our pilot production test run.
These are all components that have been sub-assembled by our various manufacturing partners. Once received at our manufacturing facility, they have to be checked, counted, itemized, and finally sorted into its place.
Next, the raw materials and sub-assembled modules will be kitted into individual boxes according to your orders and tracked with a work order traveller. This document is used to track the status of operations in our manufacturing process and ensures that previously set routing hours are adhered to.
The crew extracts the needed amount of bike components from the storage, puts them into these wooden boxes, and moves them to each designated Reevo assembly station for ease of assembly.
Next, the assembly process can begin.
The last few days have been focused on finalizing the training of the manufacturing crew, who work in groups of three to complete the mechanical assembly of the bike.
Installing the housing of the bike. Red is gorgeous!
Ta-da! Look at these beauties. We’ll leave the wheels for another update.
What a busy week! The team has been hard at work with our manufacturing facility crews to set up each Reevo assembly station for ease of assembly. Work will continue throughout this week to complete the training process for the start of production next week.
As a reminder, production may run slower in the beginning as we get our manufacturing facility crews familiar with the assembly process.
A long journey is ahead of us but we’re just getting started. In the meantime, we’ve been receiving a lot of encouraging emails and just wanted to say that the team is truly humbled, and grateful for your continued patience and understanding.
Shipping fees will be collected through EasyShip Collect. Please ensure that your shipping address is finalized on BackerKit before the lock date (10am EST Sunday, 27thFebruary). You will be receiving a link via email once your order is ready to be shipped out with further details about shipping.
Wrapping it up
Expect more updates soon! In the meantime, please finalize your orders and shipping details on Backerkit. Also, the airless tires upgrade is still available until this Sunday.
If you require any assistance from us, please do not hesitate to email our support at email@example.com, and we’ll be happy to help.
