Next round of shipping

Posted by Mellow Boards (Creator)

Dear Mellows,

as we announced in our last update, the next round of shipping is coming up.

During the last weeks we have been working really hard on the quality issues we observed and went into some extra loops with our suppliers to increase and standardize quality controls. Here for example, you see our new test rigs that specifically test the electronics and the whole drive system before leaving the production hall.

All this takes time! To make sure that each drive, we are going to deliver, meets our quality and safety standards, we will have our second round of shipping in the second week of May.

We will give you an update on up to which backer number we will ship as soon as we exactly know.

Stay tuned and speak to you soon,
Johannes & Kilian

      wird denn noch vor der Fertigstellung von BER ausgeliefert? Ich würde nämlich gerne im Sommer 2019 von da mit dem Drive in den Sommerurlaub starten!

      Junge Junge!
      Wie wär's, wenn ihr mal ein bisschen weniger auf dicke Hose macht und durch die Weltgeschichte gondelt und statt dessen eure Versprechen haltet?

      Hi Gustav & Ludo,

      we aren't happy about the delays either. We will ship as soon as the next drives are complete. It's a complex process with different suppliers involved. Each supplier has to contribute a different part to the drive, only if all of them have delivered the next charges, we can proceed sending out drives. Due to the quality issues some of them had to re-manufacture. That took some extra time.

      We are sorry to keep you waiting! We do our best to get the drives to you as soon as possible!

      I totally agree with Gustav Bylund. Setting back your timetable over and over again is not only hard to bear but also not the best way to keep your good reputation you have built up.
      I really support your great ideas and the way you realize them and of course I still look forward to hold the Mellowboard in my hands, but it seems you're running out of fuel on your last extra miles.

      Argh, the delays are killing me! We're finally rid of the snow and I can't wait to ride!

      Why are you not shipping incrementally (i.e. whenever you get a drive done), but rather in batches?
