First, I want to send out a HUGE thank you to everyone for supporting our first Kickstarter effort. Although we are disappointed to have not met our goal, the good news is that we have gotten some fabulous reviews and a lot of interest in Flipphandle.
We will continue our efforts to get Flipphandle into production and into your hands and hope you will follow us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/flipphandle) and Twitter so we can let you know when Flipphandle is available. If you or anyone you know is interested in investing in Flipphandle or licensing the product, feel free to contact us at email@example.com and we will also add you to our first-to-know list.
An interesting article on the NEED for bike storage..http://www.nytimes.com/2011/08/28/realestate/the-bicycle-muscles-in.html?pagewanted=1
Bicycle ridership in New York City (among others) has boomed in recent years, and many buildings are adding or promoting bike rooms.
You can probably fit at least 25% more bikes in a bike room with a flipphandle on them..
We are in the home stretch... please encourage your friends to support us..
And Many Thanks to all..
For backers only. If you're a backer of this project, please log in to read this post.
We would like to thank everyone again for their support and answer some questions about Flipphandle.
It weighs under a pound
It is a universal model that fits 99% of all bicycles by using different adapters
Production money for the first production run is being raised on Kickstarter
Patents are in place in US, Europe and China
We have several other products in the works including folding bike pedals and storage boxes to encourage and support more bicycle commuting
Flipphandle has been rigorously tested to the highest safety standards, and successfully passed them under CFR 16 1512 and EN 14 764 and EN 14 766
About the Payment Process:
Payments go through the Amazon payment system. When you make your pledge, you authorize the payment, but ONLY if we reach our funding goal.
We Need Your Help:
We are almost half way thru our funding period. Kickstarter's crowd-funding process is all about spreading the word so if you have been waiting to pledge, please do so now! If you can get together with ten of your friends, you will save about $10 on each Flipphandle. If each of you can tell ten people who can tell another ten people... like the old game of telephone, we can all make Flipphandle a reality.
