    What a strange product name. I doubt that this will sell well in Germany as Tripper means gonorrhoea.
    A new entry for Product names gone wrong.

    I like it. Three speeds make sense. I’d just want a taller stem. If I’m in traffic, I want to be up higher to see better. A bright color would be cool to. Better to be seen.

    Nils, do yourself a favor and look at this: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Three's_Company
    Here’s a hint that obviously escaped your STD obsession: Mr. ROPER, Mr. FURLY and Jack TRIPPER are all characters on the show.

    eh.. I don’t think they will miss not having the German market. The world is a big place Nils… If you try to make something work for everyone.. nothing would get done.
