Hello backers - By this time all of you should have received your STEMRACKs ( with the exception of the white and orange versions or those addressees that I'm still waiting on) Please read and understand the instructions and note the following:
The foam rubber base is glued to the ABS rack and will hold up to normal use, do not try to pull the foam away from the rack, as it will damage the foam.
Once you determine the optimum location for the o-ring bands, slide the retainer bead to one side, that will minimize the chance of losing a band, ( see the main kickstarter photo for an example.)
The velcro strap should be long enough for most bikes. Make certain that the center of the foam base is right on top of the handlebar/stem intersection. Be sure to really press down hard on the neoprene while cinching the strap. If you need a velcro extension strip of 3" let me know and I'll drop one in the mail for you. I have included one in the last 100 or so that I shipped out after I recieved some feedback. I will make the strap 1" longer for future production.
I have had alot of interest from folks who missed out on the Kickstarter debut asking if I would be offing them on my website and the short answer is only in 12 packs for dealers to resell at this time. Thanks for the interst, please go to your local bike shop and ask them to stock STEMRACKs. They can reach me through www.stemrack.us or Stemrack@gmail.com
I will be offering part replacements and accessories on the website shortly.
Again, Thanks for your support and I hope you are happy with your STEMRACK.
