OPEN Ambassadors - final

Gerard Vroomen - 20-Dec-2022
Thanks for all the applications, we have had so many nice, funny, serious and sometimes sad applications. By tomorrow night all of you will have received a reply (most of you already have), if you have not heard from me by then - good or bad- then please send me a note at as it means something will have gone wrong.

A completely unintended side effect of this ambassador program is that we got to talk to so many of you, often already OPEN riders, with great feedback on the bikes but also on many other topics. It has really given us a lot of ideas on things to do next, including a very cool collaboration project that we'll be rolling out next year and that will last for a few years. I am really excited about that and about many of the other ideas, so we'll have enough to do for the next 10 years.

For now, I wish you a great Holiday season and a wonderful 2023. Ride on!

Gerard (and Andy of course)

cleaning matte finish is challenging. Any recommendations for cleaning products safe for the bike?

I wash mine with dishwasher soap and water, wipe down and then wipe with a cloth that has WD40 sprayed lightly on it. It brings out more of a light shine on the frame but makes it easier to remove dirt from the next ride. Several of my friends do the same with their roab and mountain bike frames. Armorall is another option. I would test on a part of the frame that is not visible to see if it is acceptable to you for cleaning. Enjoy…
