Thank you all!

Thank you backers!  The Jiggernaut is about to become a reality and we owe it all to you guys!  We've had such an overwhelming amount of support and are grateful to you all.

Here are some important updates:

1)       The Jiggernaut and future products can be found at www.flatpackfoundry.com.   Some products on the way are a really cool fork jig, a flat pack bicycle basket, a multi-radius tube bender, and a wheel truing stand.

2)      We have spoken to a number of interested instructors and want to offer educators groups etc. the opportunity to buy multiple kits at a discount during these final days.  The Jiggernaut will not likely be this price again. If you buy three kits form us on Kickstarter, you get one free.  Standard shipping rates apply for international backers.

3)      Finally, the Disclaimer:  Our top priority is your safety.  We want you to know and understand the risks of the activity that are involved with bike building before you finalize your purchase.  When building a bike that you or someone will eventually ride, one must personally accept the responsibility of this endeavor in a legal and ethical sense. There will also be instructions with the kit that must be followed for safety.
