PRESTO CHANGE-O When arriving at a desired destination, a rider just jumps off the bike, releases a bolt to flip the front wheel to the back and collapse the seat and handlebars. The bike becomes a small rectangle, unrecognizable as a mode of transportation. If you don’t have your own private plane, you can stick yours in a satchel and carry it through airport security and stow it in the plane’s overhead compartment. PortaPedal Bike’s customers are over the moon about all the ways in which the bikes enhance their travels. The Cappellos enjoy all the stories and photos of people and their bikes in beautiful places like Hawaii and Thailand.
In addition to an intense passion about their products, Al and Donna attribute their success to taking time, as architects do, to carefully designing the shop and website so it is always logical, sequential and clear. But, truth be told, as Al says, “You don’t have to sell small wheel bikes, all you have to do is demonstrate and explain them. People can immediately experience firsthand that exercise, adventure and outdoor living are always better when you’re on an awesome bike that can go anywhere you do.”
