    Mrs. Aitch's new saddle bag.


    Holds an epi-pen, and that's important. Also fits in the 2nd bottle cage when you're on less-than-epic adventures, and that's nice.

    A little loop on the lid for a blinky light, and that's smart.

    Another present for Mrs. Aitch also came from Carl&Rose.

    Will Mrs. Aitch's saddle bag fit a neatly folded tubular?

    I know I've seen this logo shared in an old thread but can't recall where - but if I did already I'll say again, it is remarkably well done.

    Noah,

    Congrats, the stuff looks awesome. Wishing you much success.

    BTW, for my dos centavos, your pricing is way too low.

    T.H. Thanks for sharing. It looks great and you've perfected the leather strap loop at the back. By the way thinking this was yours the bag has been lined with lead shot. We'll get the lighter version out asap.

    Cristian, these are likely slightly small for a tubular. There has been interest in a bag for this however so we are looking in to details for a new bag that would handle that. Let us know of any other thoughts or desires for this sort of thing and we'll see what we can do.

    Nierman, thanks and I agree. We hired pros for this. I'm smart enough to know that I am shitty graphic designer. The first edition we received was a single line version. It was pretty good but I though it too closely resembled a Pharmacy RX sign. They came back with the double lined version and I was sold on the spot. Much more complex and allows for a variety of colo(u)r iterations.

    Thank you Mr. Smith.

    Pricing is such a tricky thing as you know. Locally produced can rarely compete based on price alone but we have been very conscious about not pricing ourselves out of the market so soon.
    With many of the listed products we have started with a handful made in house to get a sense of labour and material costs then worked in wholesale pricing while trying to keep the retail price as modest as possible.
    Regarding the saddle bags, many bags out there are selling for half if not less than what we've got but we're banking on these having something special to carry us over. The margins are slim, no doubt. These bags are very complex to produce and we have spent much time working out the details and the sewers don't love making them.
    Pricing for these and some of our other products will likely come up to something more sustainable but getting a foot in the door can be a good starting point. We're also set up for online and in shop sales and hope to be able to grow that side of the business as we progress. In this case current pricing is more sustainable though that sort of growth can be slow and requires much more leg work, media attention and so on.

    Would love to hear more of your thoughts.

    Noah

    I'm pretty sure that TK, Josh, and Wayne can fold a Pave CG tight enough to fit in a coin purse.

    Hey Noah,

    Not much to add here except to say that every time I see a *really* kick ass paint job on a frame around these parts, it is one of yours. Nice work.

    Thanks Jeremy for the kind words. I'll be heading out Monday for a long ride if you are around and want to come along. I am sure you are still the powerhouse I have known you to be.

    Some recent Carl&Rose news:

    We were given a small feature in the Globe and Mail last month with a focus on our constructed planters.

    This week the quarterly magazine Design Lines came out and we have been given a larger feature here. Not my favourite photo of us but the work looks good. We haven't picked up a print edition yet. It's also nice that the bike life gets some attention too.
    Buy Local: Carl & Rose | Designlines

    We can also be found in the most recent edition of Momentum for a couple cycling related products.

    I am very pleased with the work we are producing. I know it's not all bike stuff and I hope you consider something of ours for upcoming Mothersday or if you just want to get something nice for you or your other.

    Things are coming along. No holiday for us.
    Thanks for your attention,
    Noah

    A young film maker got in touch about putting together a short video. He was excited about what we do at VéloColour and wanted to get a bit of footage. Here is the result from that sunny summer afternoon.

    Probably ought to be a Saturday Night Specials thread filled with remarkable paint. Some amazing work represented in those photos.
