Update on where we are with production

Posted by Matt Franks (Creator)

Hi Folks,

Since being fully funded, we've been working hard to get a revised prototype into production. 

The revision has gone well and we now have something much more effective, with better fixing points, better protection for the chain, chainring and cassette, and a better end fixing clip that makes putting on the blanket and taking it off, a doddle. We have rigorously tested it and are really happy with the results. 

However, the greater complexity has meant that it's taking the manufacturer longer to produce each single unit. They are midway through production and will hopefully have the first order with us in early August. I'm working closely with them and will advise everyone when I have a fixed final delivery date.

Thank you for your support to date and I'll keep updating the page with information as I get it. If any one has any questions please comment or get in touch privately through the Kickstarter messenger facility.

Regards,
Matt

      Hi, Ha, not a problem. I've just taken delivery of a revised prototype so will upload a new video and show it in action. I'll be posting it this week. Thank you for bearing with us!

      Regards,
      Matt

      Hi Matt, Great to hear all is progressing well. Can't wait to use the finished article.
      Has interest grown since funding? Keen to see if you are managing to get interest from retailers etc. MJ
