We are trying to eliminate as many barriers to would-be frame builders as possible.  Jiggernaut LITE enables anyone to take up this wonderful craft and produce a high quality custom bicycle.  We have designed a number of flat-pack jigs and kits that make it easy to get started in frame building. 

We will send these out very soon after the kickstarter closes!

The Jiggernaut LITE has even fewer restrictions than the original because size is no object.  By providing your own backing material you can make a frame that is as big or as small as you like.  If you want quick and easy, buy The Jiggernaut original but if you want less expensive and versatile The Jiggernaut LITE is for you.

A frame jig is an essential tool for building bike frames. There are some jigs on the market today, but most are designed with the production builder in mind and are well beyond the budget of the average person that just wants get started in bicycle building. We didn’t want this hurdle to stand in the way any longer. We have designed and built a high-quality frame jig that is affordable to anyone wanting to try their hand at frame building.

Final Poster Concept Sketch
Final Poster Concept Sketch

About the poster... I only had the nitty-gritty engineering version ready for filming the video but I thought I would include my concept sketch for the finished poster.  The poster is printed to exact scale on architectural size paper.  I will edition them by hand in the order they come in (serious extra fulfillment issues).   I am hoping they will be equal parts tool and cool. 

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

I think this one will be a pretty straight forward execution. The first time around we grossly underestimated the time involved with fulfillment. This time we know what to expect. The greatest risk is promising a fast turn around trying to get it out to you quickly. We will do everything we can but there is a lag between receiving funds and making orders. I will have the posters ready for action so I can get them out the fast!
