UPDATE PART 2

As per the comments and notes within the Yahoo article, these were taken directly from competitors of the eBike, which are selling bikes for $1,199+ and $1,295+ as their introductory offers. Our eBike’s main appeal is focused on price and getting the basic features right. Of course we could create a bike that is lighter and has other options that would increase costs but that was not the goal from the start. We wanted to create an alternative mode of transportation that is fun and easy on the wallet by focusing on the essentials.

Finally, there has been some confusion with bike in the video and the bike on the Indiegogo page. The bike in the video is our prototype, where we tested different components to get the right fit, at the right price. The bike outlined on our page specifically references the eBike you will receive and the model that we will have at our first Demo Day in Santa Monica, CA. this weekend.

Production model that media demoed

The manufacturing process is scheduled to begin in March with the first shipments set for May. Our facilities have already been notified well in advance of the campaign and are on standby. Currently, we are able to confidently deliver between 12,000-14,000 units in the first manufacturing order. The quantity limitations are due to quality control. Each and every eBike must be tested by someone to ensure all finished products are up to par before shipping.

Should the demand increase over the 12,000-14,000 unit range, we will need to schedule a second run of production that delivers in September.

Finally, to show that there are no gimmicks, “smoke and mirrors”, or uncertainties about the product, we will be showcasing the bike this weekend for fans and customers at our first ever demo day.  This gives fans a voice and extends past just the press and media. We have 150+ backers RSVP’d for the eBike demo this weekend in LA and can’t wait to get their thoughts on feedback.
