A PIECE OF HISTORY
IMG_1255

Seen here is the first ever Rhoades Car built.  This particular bike was made in 1989 which was two years before Rhoades Car was actually started.  David Rhoades created this bike and went on to create a strong and solid business of making quality quadracycles for years to come.  This unique piece of history is displayed in our new “Rhoades Car Headquarters” conference room.  We host Rhoades Car customers, partners, and enthusiasts in our newly remodeled room and we’re especially proud of this bike and the story that it holds.  We love having visitors come and check out our facility.  This past week we had a couple from Memphis, TN come and tour our headquarters and they increased their Rhoades Car fleet from one GoBoy to two so that both can enjoy their time together outdoors.  We also had a gentleman and his grandson, from Miami, FL,  stop by on their way to Virginia as a part of their grandfather/grandson road trip.  He ended up purchasing a brand new 4W1P model and he’s extremely excited to get his new bike out on the streets of his neighborhood.  We cannot tell you how proud we are of our facility but also how much we enjoy having visitors.  We love how people get to see an inside look at our operations and get a better understanding of what all we do here.  You also get to test drive certain models and sometimes even get to see things we don’t have on the market yet!  If you’re ever in the area or even passing through, we’d love to have you stop by  and say hey.

TESTIMONIAL
From an 80 year old man who has owned his Rhoades Car for 17 years and has put 50,000 miles on it. when asked if it was worth the investment:
“H*** YES! It has been more than worth it. It’s the best thing I’ve ever bought, and I’d be lost without it. It’s the best form of transportation I’ve ever owned, and the best part is NEVER needing gas!”
– Carlton R., Paramount, CA

NEW BRAKES!

NewBrake

We’re excited to share that we have upgraded our braking system on every model!  This new rotor (disc)/caliper combo allows each bike to have more stopping force which is generated by more torque on the wheel.  Our master builder, Chris Spann, said, “The larger rotor provides a larger braking surface, which aids in dispersing more heat.  We were using 160mm and now with the new rotor, we are at 200mm.”  The new caliper compares extremely well with hydraulic calipers and are half the price.  Our new calipers are the lightest on the market and are easily adjustable.  This new system is another level of improvement to our bikes as we continue to strive and make better products while keeping the price down for our customers.

TESTIMONIAL
We recently posted a video on our facebook page about a clinical study on the effects of cycling which helps increase motor functions.  This study showed some impressive results that helped those with Parkinson’s disease.  We were happy to see a comment from one of our customers which read, “My wife has Parkinson’s and that is the reason we bought your bike for two. She has trouble walking, but put her in the passenger seat and she can pedal all day long.”  What a great testimony and we’re glad to hear that she’s being able to not only enjoy time with her husband, but participate in a healthy, fun activity with her Rhoades bike!

MANAGER’S SPECIAL
With the monthly manager’s special, we want you to enjoy some discounts on products that we believe in.  This month, we wanted to share with you our preferred choice of men’s button-up shirts at Twillory.  Not only do they make great shirts, but they also have a great re-purpose cause – by joining forces with a forward thinking charity, CareerGear, your re-purposed clothing will help the jobless, homeless and disaster stricken, both at home and abroad.  For a limited time, Rhoades Car has partnered with Twillory to celebrate “25 Years of Rhoades Car” for some great promo codes at special discounts:

New Year, New Ownership, New Excitement!


Since changing ownership this past October, we wanted to share with everyone what’s happened over the past several months at “RCHQ.”  It’s been an exciting transition as we moved the Rhoades Car Headquarters from Hendersonville, TN to Nashville, TN.  Other than address, there hasn’t been much change on the administrative or assembly area of our operations.  You still get the same outstanding customer service and quality workmanship that you’ve grown to know and love with every Rhoades Car.

Because of our parent company’s relationship and experience with engineering and manufacturing, we feel that we’re in a great place to continue to make our quadracycles better and start manufacturing as many of our pieces in-house as possible.  We love that our bikes are Made in the USA and will continue to make that be the stamp you see on each and every bike sold.

We continue to have a very strong dealer network in the U.S. and look forward to growing our dealer network extensively this year.  We feel that our dealers are our hands and feet throughout the U.S. and most potential customers want to experience a Rhoades Car before they purchase.  So having dealers throughout the U.S. to be available for demonstrations and experiences is a priority for Rhoades Car this year and moving forward.

As always, if you’re in the Nashville area or passing through, please let us know so we can give you a tour of our new facility.  But be careful, it’s very hard leaving our facility without wanting to take one home with you!

We look forward to having a BIG year in 2016 so stay tuned for future updates and discounts!

 

Rhoades Car team

From the owner of a used Rhoades Car 4W2P Cycle Car who stopped by to say hello:


“Thank you so much for the tour of your awesome facility. I really enjoyed my time there and appreciated Chris’ feedback on my older model Rhoades. I have never seen a company or factory back their product the way you do! Most of the time it is..drive it off the lot..it breaks..too bad! Not you! My bike was given the once over (even though I was not the original owner) , advice dispensed, and I was even given a cold pop/soda to boot! How great is that for Southern hospitality?!

I have gotten a LOT of attention while driving my Rhoades Car. I am looking forward to riding her in any and all parades that I can. I have recently started my own small business and plan to advertise with my Rhoades Car. Also, my hubby and I are trying to lose weight the Rhoades Car way… more updates to come, I promise!

From one of our YouTube subscribers:


“I found the GoBoy X2 amazing. My girlfriend is recovering from a encephalitis and has issues with balance on a regular bike. That would be an awesome green transportation for both of us from our house to the nearest commercial center (about 30 minutes by bike from my house).”

From a Rhoades Car Facebook Friend:


“Saw you on TN Crossroads. Fabulous idea! A great way to spend quality family time. My boys would love it! Thank you for supporting America. You can’t find too many things made in America anymore. My father is a retired steel mill worker, so thank you for buying American steel.”

A recent You Tube viewer comment:


“I just want to say that you people have an amazing product, this vehicle is also a good instrument for health and exercise. Can you imagine the overall health benefits that people will get from the use of this vehicle if they made this a core part of their lifestyle followed with a regular diet of fruits and vegetables, especially with the obesity epidemic going on in the nation, this will definitely be a blessing for anyone to own one this will definitely be a blessing for anyone to own one of these, it looks fun too. Keep up the good work and God bless.”   042514

From Ron McPherson, who had knee and blood sugar issues prior to purchasing his 2-person Cycle Car in May 2012:


“My doctor, back in May, instructed me to get a stationary bicycle to exercise my left knee. He explained the pedals must be forward, not underneath me. The Rhoades Car filled the need and then some. My wife and I ride it every other day for four miles. There has been a large improvement – I can walk with out a limp. Also, my blood sugar has come under control and greatly lowered my numbers. Since starting the exercise I have lost 40 lbs.”
