We've been living, breathing, eating and sleeping Frame Handles ever since the project successfully funded on July 7th. Geoff's been in the workshop making them with a helper, and I've been in the office, doing the logistics and responding to questions. We've been so immersed, in fact, that Geoff's dad put a frame handle on my birthday cake! The Dessert Tray in Beaverton even made it with realistic looking buckles and rivets. We were pretty impressed with the fondant version, but sadly, it did not make lifting the cake easier.
Some of you have been getting shipping notifications but haven't received your frame handles yet. If this describes you - don't worry! I printed out most of the postage in anticipation of a shipping party last week, but not all of them have been shipped yet. We have a couple weeks more of shipments to make, so please stay patient with us, we expect to have most everyone's in the mail by the end of the month, with the exception of custom orders.
We've been getting some great feedback from people who have already gotten their Frame Handles. Jennie said, "I'm loving my frame handle! I've been using it for about three weeks now, and it really does make a difference! Thanks again!"
This made our day, thank you, Jennie!
There are also some bicycles where the frame handle didn't fit one or more of their bike frame tubes. We are working on a solution for these bikes, with more to come after we've fulfilled all the Kickstarter rewards. We designed it to fit bike frames with a 1-1.5" tube diameter, believing that to be the most common bike size out there, but it is so difficult to create a universal bicycle accessory.
If this describes you, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with the measurements of your bike tubes, in circumference or diameter. We're keeping track and will be following up after the Kickstarter rewards have gone out.
Thank you again for such a wonderful experience working with Kickstarters, more to come later.
