What ETI is apparently telling us is that there is a charge on the 2015's for bike rack ready but that there were people who received that at no charge because theirs happened to come with it without necessarily being ordered. Makes me wonder if some folks above did not order bike rack ready.

The slide situation is indeed what someone had pm'd me, namely, a 21' now comes only side to side. ETI says there is an access problem with the front to back slide so they now will not do it.

Also asked about half cubbies and they will not do that.

Ditto that, yet prefer the shelf above the bed. Curtain is great too; not sure if it comes without cubby option.

That curtain only goes over the cubbies? I thought it was for in front of the door.

I can see why ETI went with all builds being bike ready. Can you imagine having two different frames for each model, just for a bicycle? They're working on the Lean model, standardized work.

You mean like this size (on a 21)?

Nice to stow slippers below and coats above. Have another 21 owner coming to the shop in June to compare dimensions on different 21s to build theirs.

Yes, with a counter top like the other counters. What material is on your top? No problem with putting the weight of coats up there?

I forgot you have tape, not screws. I was wondering about where the studs are up there and whether, with screws, hooks could hold a lot of weight, any heavy coat.

Yep, we were pleasantly surprised to find our 19 was bike rack ready when we picked it up. It was shown as optional on our build sheet, but we didn't order it.

Perhaps now we should take up bike riding.

I love the widget by the door of the 21' Charlie... SCORE! The ETI build is nice too, but having hanging space for coats and those cubies is totally cool.

We need to talk! I have an idea for three widgets for Ten Forward that may be of interest for 5.0TA owners. See you at the rally!

The curtain goes from the bathroom door in front of the cubbies to the kitchen counter covering the door.

We like the curtain, allows one to keep the door open in the morning while the better half sleeps in.
