October update - Its uphill and we are flying like the wind!

Backers, at this point we are going full steam - the parts are mostly in and about half of the "subassemblies" are complete. A build plan is in place and everyone is good to go. November is quickly approaching and at this point we are on track, but shipments are likely to only start going out during the last week of November. As we get closer and closer to the delivery date we will keep everyone updated with our latest developments.

We plan to have our first Go Rolling event in December and will be selecting a suitable venue and date, that we will announce next month.

Funny story - a couple of weeks age we had this comment from a potential customer: 

"The electric bikes retailer I've asked about electric wheels told me that "all those products are made by east coast companies that don't have hills in their city and they would do very poorly here" and the only way I could do what I want to do would be to buy one of his electric bikes at $4000.00"

So we packed up a wheel, went out to the West Coast and took this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2hZ_8hBwQAM  Take that hills!

We continue to get out locally and our beta testers are continuing to clock up miles.

Our global community continues to grow from the massive launch that you all supported.  In the last 3 months since our campaign finished we have had hundreds of pre-orders and thousands of engagements. The biggest video we can find is now at 21 Million views. Thank you Tech Insider and if you haven't watched it, please do so and share it with your friends we want this one to keep getting 1 Million views every month.

We will send out another update early in November which will be more accurate with the build plan and expected shipment dates. 

Thank you all for your ongoing support!

      Robert, yes she needed to pedal. on small gradients pedaling is not required. Battery use will be the only 'wear and tear' which has been designed for and yes this was full power...its a very steep hill!

      ok I understand that was a steep hill but, did she need to pedal? was that at full power and will doing that daily cause more wear and tear?
