If you're a regular reader/follower of our blog, awhile back you may
have seen a few posts about porter crates that I built for my bike. I
built those few and blogged about them thinking someone might be
interested in maybe buying one, but it was more about building
something for me. So awhile ago I got an email from Trek (yes- the
largest bike manufacturer in the world- THAT Trek) and they said they
were making a bike for 2010 and thought one of my crates would look
great on the front and wondered if I could build them a couple. After
a bit of celebration, I got to work. I built two crates for them and
sent them off.

A few months passed and I heard nothing. Then out of the blue I got an
email saying they used my crates for the catalog and that they’re on
the cover! I’m still in shock I can't believe it- I got the catalog,
and sure enough...my crates are all over Trek's catalog!!!

So I have a new business. I'm working on the site and looking into
what I need to make this work. Keep in touch with the blog and if
you're interested in getting a crate you can always email me ( cole at
1lesscar dot com ) and we can talk about it.

Brandon emailed me because he saw the piece on my bike bags in the New York Times. I just wanted to comment on this because your crates are so cool! I definitely want one for the bike I'm building right now. As someone who just started a business I know how overwhelming even thinking about it can be, but so worth it! Good luck and I look forward to hearing more about your crates.
