The end of one campaign, is the beginning of the next.

Hello Friends,

Your outpouring of support has been incredible and raising over $21,000 is no small feat! Unfortunately, with just 6 hours left to raise our Kickstarter goal, it doesn't look like the project will succeed.  This means all of your funding will be returned, but we won't be able to bring SleekSpeak to full-scale production this time around.

Never fear!  Your feedback has given us new direction to make SleekSpeak the perfect bike speaker and we have already started redesigning.  In the past couple days we have developed a plan to integrate your favorite features in an innovative way and reduce the funding goal in the process.  We expect to be able to show you the exciting improvements in mid-June and re-launch on Kickstarter shortly after.

Thank you for truly amazing experience so far and I hope to speak with you again very soon,

David Meisenholder

      Hi David,

      Is version two of the project still coming out? Also, I think if would be great if you made a bass Sleek Speak that was tuned just for bass notes. This way we could have 2.1 sound on our bikes. Perhaps the app would have to funnel the bass to the bass Sleek Speak and the other frequencies to the other two (taking left and right into consideration). Left and Right could be identified in the app. The bass one being positioned on the crossbar under the seat or on the seat post. That would be really cool. :)

      Looking forward to backing this again.

      Hey David, I thought you had a great product design and a catchy intro video. I hope you won't let this lack of funding discourage you, it seems more like the result of pseudo-random internet fate. I hope to get another chance to back your ideas!

      +1 for everybody above. Would love to be notified about your next Kickstarter project. My motorbike is feeling lonely without SleekSpeak.

      I, also, hope that there is some mechanism in place to alert previous backers to a relaunch. Thanks, and good luck.

      Can you please notify us when the new campaign is up, so we won't miss it?

      Is there a newsletter/site that will be regularly updated so we can follow progress? :)

      Definitely will be backing again upon the relaunch
