A Mountain FeedBag Update...
You may or may not remember my review of the Epic Ride Research Mountain FeedBag in Issue #4 of XXC. The bags have been sold out for some time, and many folks seemed to have enquired about them without succes. Well today XXC found out why in the form of an e mail from ERR which I share below...
Hello from Epic Ride Research.
You’re receiving this email because you’ve expressed interest in Mountain FeedBag. As founder of this company I’d like to give you an update.
Late this summer, I took a sudden and unprecedented leave of absence from operating this company. An illness that had been in the background suddenly ramped up, leaving me unable to conduct business. Mountain FeedBag happened to be on an extended backorder at the time. Little did I know, inquiries about Mountain FeedBag continued to pour in during this time.
Please understand, I have been absolutely in love with (and dedicated to) this company since 2006. I treasure each and every customer (you!) and love hearing your stories, successes, and future plans of epic rides. I am eager to get back to business…. More than you can know!
Illness is fading, treatment is working. I am slowly getting back on my feet. My manufacturer is reorganizing to accommodate the next batch. Further, I am fazing out my day job in order to dedicate myself to Epic Ride Research’s product design and distribution.
Thank you for your patronage, your support of American-made products, your passion for pushing yourself to the limit, and most of all your patience as I get back to business.
I’ll be in contact with each of you individually about your inquiries and orders. I’m starting with the earliest inquiries and will continue down the list. I’ll talk with you soon!

Glad to see that Epic Ride Research is going to be going strong. They make a great product that really does allow endurance racers and riders to easily carry more food and supplies for the long rides. Get well to ERR founder Christa Olsson from XXC.
