    Mirrors update - The 1st production run took a little longer than expected due to a machine breaking but a partial order will arrive tomorrow Sep 28th 2007 so we can start shipping orders.

    The bad news is this partial shipment is only enough to fill 1/2 of the orders that were placed. A 2nd much larger shipment will arrive in about 2 weeks and all remaining orders will be filled.

    Sorry for my delay in shipping.

    Opinions wanted.......We have located a convex mirror........But they are much more expensive. Would it horth $5-6 more to get a convex mirror?

    I am not sure if it would be worth offering both styles.

    How about a deal for ADVriders? Looks like the price went up a fair amount since your initial post...

    Experiment? Our Mirrors are not a new fly by night product.....they have been manufactured for many years and have exceeded expectations of 1000's of users.

    [FONT=&quot]Guys a lot has happened from when this was first posted a year ago. Are you paying the same for gas as you did a year ago??? Products we all buy every day have had to go up up up.

    It costs more to manufacture today than it did a year ago. It costs more for employees to even get to work today that it did a year ago. It costs more to ship and receive shipments. All of this adds up and we had to increase the pricing but have tried to keep our prices as low as possible. We have many dealers stocking our products so it is on their shelf's when you want them. We can not undercut them by offering discounts.

    My name is Steve. We offer many different products and this is my full time job. If you call 704-340-7958 Monday threw Saturday between the hours of 10AM-6PM Eastern Standard Time ........ unless I am in the bathroom, at lunch or already on the phone, I answer the phone and ship products when orders are placed. Sure we occasionally run out of products. I try my best to keep the flow of manufacturing vs shipment at the proper flow.

    I ride too and like to receive things I order in a reasonable amount of time so I understand what is expected and try to deliver.

    Steve,

    I am sure your product is a quality product, and of course you are free to charge whatever you see fit for your products. It probably is even priced fairly and competitively, and likely sells very well.

    But this is twice you implied that your price increases were caused by increases in things like the price of fuel, which I simply do not believe.

    $50 -> $70 = 40% price increase in 12 months.
    $60 -> $85 = 42% price increase in 12 months.

    Thats retail. Cost of goods/manufacturing would have had to go up probably twice that if the actual margin remained the same.

    Again, I'm sure your product is great, and probably even priced fairly, but call it what it is, a market adjustment, not a cost of production adjustment.

    Also, the request was for a ADVrider discount, not to roll back the prices 12 months.

    Please do not over inflate your comparison information.

    Powder coated finish is now $79.95 not $85

    $84.95 would be the powder coated Convex that we did not offer a year ago.

    I was not implying it was a "fly by night product....". I was considering mounting it an alternative way. Geesh, just say The price is the price.

    are you selling the black anodized? And if so, would it be possible to get them without the logo on the back of the mirror?
