When Xtracycle president Kipchoge Spencer was last in Portland he arranged to show Selling the Revolution, a thirteen-minute documentary from 2000 about launching their then-new product. While most of the story was familiar to me, I really enjoyed the short as a reminder of some of the things that got me to buy one in 2001, and some of the sense of mission that has sustained me in making an accessory for it. I also liked the new sense of appreciation the Xtracycle owners in the audience seemed to come away with. I asked Kipchoge about pushing it to a wider audience via the web, and here you go:
Where do you suppose we’ll all be in 2014? I’m pretty sure I’ll still not be driving a car, and I have Xtracycle to thank for that probably more than any other single party.
