KELLY NEWS UPDATE - 11/5/2014

 

 

Meet your maker "making music"

11/5/14 - Lots of us builders have a life and other interests, other than the craft or trade we’re known for - a means to express ourselves or simply a way to chill, have some fun, and even better, make a few new friends.

one of my many other interests is to play music. from the time I was very young ive always enjoyed “making music” and performing for my friends. I play a lot in my hometown of Nevada City, known for its outstanding bike race and its bike and arts culture, but Thursday November 6th I will be venturing down the hill to the Fox & Goose in downtown Sacramento with the lovely and talented Cherisha Heart where we will performing the classics of Joni Mitchell, John Prine, Maria Muldaur, Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, Gerry Rafferty, Elvis Costello, Squeeze, Crowded House and many more....

You could say it’s a chance to meet your maker making music....

The fun begins at 8pm and goes till 11pm and there is no cover, so I hope you (all my local bike industry friends) in the Sacramento area can make it out to the Fox & Goose tomorrow night.

for updates and info to what im doing musically you can check out my facebook music page Chris Kelly Music.

hope to see you there!

CK

Kelly® TakeOff - temporarily out of stock.

10.7.14 - my apologies to those of you who've been on the wait list and those of you that are new to order. we are currently out of stock on takeoff's and are working very hard to be back "in stock". the problem is cost, and trying to keep the cost of manufacturing down so we can keep the overall price around the $50 price range. we're hung up on one certain part - the bent tube extension that connects the mounting ring to the shift lever backing plate... we cant get it for the price we need it to be so we're just biting the bullet and making the tooling to perform that operation "in-house". once that tooling is built its gonna be nose to the grindstone building mounds and mounds of takeoff's.

till then, please bare with us and feel free to join the TakeOff wait list so you can be first in line for the first batches to be finished. all i can say is we're very close...

thanks for your patience -CK

kelly® website factoids...

Industry factoid - what many folks don't know is that in 1995 Kelly® was one of the very first bicycle manufacturing company’s to actually create and host a website. While many were scoffing at the notion or concept of the whole dot com thing we were on the move figuring out a better way to reach "the people" that were actually interested in our goods and services - not just in out local town or country, but to the "whole wide world" on the world wide web. being a small boutique company it was the only way to get the word out without having to rely on a huge advertising budget that we could never afford.

18 years later it is obvious to see that the website thing has paid off and many have followed the trend that was set by companies like ours. However with the changing times and many new web based businesses there are more and more great features and services to be had on the open market, and as we near our 30th year, its time for us to change. After 18 years with our original web host it was clear that the features they offer are not up to date so we have made the move to a new server host.

Report glitches and broken links - for the next few weeks there will be changes to the site and we expect a few broken links and glitches. if you experience any of these glitches please feel free to report them by emailing webguy@kellybike.com

 

 

 

 

 

bigger pictures!

for those of you that stroll the TakeOff instruction pages hoping to find a bit more resolution -- your time has come. the previous pictures have been upsized by at least 100% and are much easier to view. since Kelly Take Off has become a much more popular item over the past few years the plan is to take more detailed pictures of how to install it and post them with higher resolution pop-ups so folks can have much more detailed "how to" info at their fingertips....

2006 SINGLE SPEED WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS!

8/19/06 - STOCKHOLM SWEDEN - As fate would have it, Sveinung Björköy of Norway rode his Kelly® Deluxe to a 2006 Single Speed World Championship Victory, thus crowning the Kelly® Deluxe a two-time World Champion (2002 & 2006).

"To tell you the truth I was kinda bummed out that we couldn't afford to send Stella and Dorothy to Stockholm, what with all the goings on here at Kelly", company founder and owner Chris Kelly lamented, "so this was indeed a very nice surprise when I heard the news of Sveinung winning on one of our bikes and wearing our colors", Kelly said with a smile. "It's kind of funny how things work out sometimes", he concluded.

Our deepest congratulations and thanks go out to you Sveinung! A job well done!
