To those of you that have already received your FLIT-16, we hope you are enjoying your new ebike! For those of you that haven't received yours yet, thank you so much for your patience, your bike will be on it's way to you soon.
We're working hard to quality check and send bikes out as quickly as we can. We want to make sure that every bike is perfect, and don't want to compromise at this final stage. Last week, we sent out local and London orders. This week we are focusing on EU and US orders due to the longer delivery time, so that we can get them out before the Christmas deadlines. After this we'll be sending out UK orders that are further afield.
If you have queries or concerns with regards to your order, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Thanks again for your patience, we're working hard to get your bike to you as fast as we can.
With very best wishes,
The FLIT Team
