UPDATE PART 1

Hi Everyone!

First of all let me once again tell you how overwhelmed my team and I are by the response to our eBike campaign. We are thrilled to know there is such a vibrant community of folks who want to embrace electric bicycles as a thoughtful, yet fun, alternative way to get around.  As part of all of this excitement, we’ve raised a few eyebrows – and that’s good!  We want the electric bike industry to grow, flourish, evolve and be a part of the change.

But let’s clear a few things up.  We wanted to let the general public and our fans know that our Storm eBike is not in any way affiliated, associated, authorized, endorsed by, or related to the Prodeco Tech Storm 300 or 500 electrical bicycle models.  There has never been any plan to confuse these respective bike models. If you are interested in the Prodeco Tech Storm 300 or 500 electric bicycles, please check out Prodeco’s website. Both models received great reviews. To avoid any confusion we are changing the name of our eBike effective immediately.

This is a hard decision but one we feel is in the best interests of the campaign and our customers. Going forward the bike will be known as the Sondors eBike (my last name). Please note, this will have no impact on the bike or manufacturing/delivery schedule, other than the name that appears on the eBike.

 

Over the past week, there have been a few misconceptions of the bike in the media and we would like to clear these up.

As noted in the article, the $499 price point was the introductory price. The price of the bike will increase over time (as stated in the first Yahoo article) with a suggested retail price of $1,299. However, throughout the Indiegogo Campaign, the price will be much lower. The goal is to create an affordable eBike for the masses, and we are 100% committed to doing that. Crowdfunding allows us to cut out the middlemen and deliver the eBike directly to you at a fraction of the price.
