At Carry Freedom, we’re not just a business, we’re a philosophy. We believe in sustainable transportation options and providing our customers with the highest quality products that are environmentally friendly. Our mission is to help reduce congestion in urban areas by offering alternative transportation methods that are faster, healthier, and more fun.
We want to take a moment to share some updates on recent events that have impacted Carry Freedom, particularly with respect to pricing. The past two years have been challenging for us due to factors outside of our control. The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted supply chains worldwide, making it difficult for us to source raw materials.
Unfortunately, this has resulted in unexpected price increases that we had not anticipated. The high demand for bicycles during the pandemic also meant that standard parts like tires, tubes, and hubs had much longer lead times. Many of our suppliers, particularly those in Asia, were under lockdown, further complicating matters. To make matters worse, the surge in demand sent freight prices skyrocketing. In fact, the last container we received was nearly three times as expensive as the previous one.
While we did pass some of the price increase on to our customers, we did not pass on the full increase. We understand that many of you have been affected by the pandemic in various ways, and we want to support our community as best we can. We remain optimistic that the situation will stabilize in the future, and we are committed to offering the best possible value to our customers.
More recently, we have also been impacted by the conflict in Ukraine, which has made many consumers hesitant to make purchases. As a small company, we are particularly vulnerable to such events. However, Carry Freedom is healthy and we remain committed to our vision and goals. We are grateful for your ongoing support and understanding during these difficult times.
Thank you for your continued support, and we hope you enjoy our new website and products as much as we do.
