We’re in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and the good news is that the specwriter Chip and I came to see has agreed to include Falcon exit devices in his specifications! Yippee!
The bad news is that we arrived a bit early for Bike Week, but I figured it’s still a good place to mention cycle testing. The new Falcon exit devices are certified to meet the BHMA requirements for Grade 1, which include cycle-testing the devices for a minimum of 500,000 cycles. So if you’d like to propose Falcon 24/25 devices for a project that requires Grade 1 panic hardware, give my office (or your local SSC office) a call and we’ll help you with the process. And if you need more information about BHMA certifications, their website has a wealth of information, including “Standards at a Glance” which are summaries of the standards. Most of the Standards at a Glance can be downloaded for free.
Chip did a little cycle testing of his own on our road trip:
The kids got in on the cycle testing too:
