The Pedal Wagon Dayton manager says her company has received several calls and comments since news broke over the summer that Lindsay Kleinhenz and Chad Banter, the owners of Dayton-based QuadracycAle, plan to shelve or sell the business. The Dayton-area couple cited a family illness as the reason in a Facebook post.
Among other things, she is working with a University of Dayton class for an art project on one of her wagon bikes.
The Cincinnati-based company launched its third Dayton pedal wagon bike around the Fourth of July.
"We are going strong and had a great first year," Bergman said. "This year has been more of the same."
Bergman she and her staff members considered Kleinhenz and Banter part of their family and loved seeing them on the road.
“This had to be a really hard decision for them,” Bergman said, noting she plans to reach out to the couple. “We wanted them to be on the road as much as we were on the road and wanted them to succeed.”
