Dear Dixie Flyer Family,
I would like to thank you for becoming a part of this amazing journey we call Dixie Flyer Bicycles. We are at a point now where we need to make some grown-up decisions regarding our company. My goal is to grow our brand, add more products and make Dixie Flyer Bicycles the gem of the track scene. We are here for the long haul, but I can’t do it alone.
With absolutely no money, but a lot of vision, my plan was to literally build the BTB track frame one mold at a time, selling frames to pay for the next mold. I have been absolutely honored and humbled by a few seed/angel investors and their guidance to help pay some of the first couple mold manufacturing costs. The rest of my manufacturing and inventory costs came from BTB sales. Meanwhile, I was dealing with modifications to make the BTB a competitive, affordable track bike that my forefathers would be proud of.
Dixie Flyer Bicycles now has seven BTB track frame sizes; Mini Dixie 650c to the 62cm. This strategy to start in the niche’ market of track cycling was a gamble, but because of you, we have made this work.
Dixie Flyer Bicycles is seeking investors to take us to the next level. I am prepared with the numbers and all the exciting plans we have for the very near future. It’s pretty simple, the more investment we can achieve, the better chance we have to jump into the pace line with the big players.
The Walthour’s have been in this bike game now for over 123 years. We are continuing our legacy by promoting, inspiring and providing a spectacular bicycle line. My great grandfather, the original Dixie Flyer and my grandfather Bobby Walthour Jr. put all they had into their careers as cyclists. This is my chance to give back to the sport.
