    All of the $9 rewards, plus save your place in line to purchase our Pedal Genny model if we are able to get it manufactured in the future.

    Currently, our machines are hand-built so the capacity is constrained and the costs are high. Our $10-12 rewards are intended to help us gauge interest in doing a manufactured production run of machines to significantly reduce the cost of the machines.
