      Don't know if anyone still visits here for changes, but I just found a post on how to make your own [practically any length] chalk for cheap. http://www.thesimpledollar.com/2013/05/31/making-your-own-sidewalk-chalk/ Last summers chalk bill was high. I see this year LONG rides with long inexpensive sticks that do not wear out in a mile!

      Scott, I'm also curious to know the status of Chalktrail for Scooters. I see they are starting to become available to the general public so I'm a bit disappointed that we haven't heard anything yet and am quite disappointed to see the retail price is almost half of the kickstarter price. Also, you had previously mentioned that we should increase our pledge to receive more than one Chacktrail (2x the amount for 2, 3x for 3, etc). Is this still going to be the case since Fat Brain is fulfilling orders? I pledged according to the price for three of them Thanks for any update.

      Hi Scott, just a quick question after a long wait for updates: what happend to the chalktrail for Scooters?

    4. Creator Scott Baumann on August 28, 2012

      Hey Chris! I'm happy you're happy!! Please send some video so we can share in the joy! And thanks so much again for your enthusiastic support and appreciation — you make it all worth it.
      Chalk'n'Roll!

      My two arrived today. For me & my son we will be the first in the world [our area] to use them. To me, that is all that matters - He'll be ecstatic.

      Thanks Scott & to that person/business that pledged the substantial sum at the last minute to make this possible; lest everyone forgets : http://www.kicktraq.com/projects/1894629582/chalktrail-awesome-toys-for-bike-and-scooter#chart-daily

      Truly sorry Tim. It's my bad - and certainly not my intent to keep anyone waiting any longer than necessary to experience the magic of Chalktrail - especially the Kickstarters that made it all possible. Thanks again for your support - enjoy the ride!

      Scott -

      I agree with Mah. I don't think backers are generally pleased to support a project 4+ months before fulfillment and then receive the item after retail customers.

      Hi MAH,
      If there's fault here, it's mine and I appologize. I suppose I should have sent out the request for everyone's shipping information earlier than I did. I guess I didn't expect it to take over a week to receive most everyones information as we need to process to the Kickstarter fulfillment at one time. The good news is that you'll be Chalktrailing in a matter of days! The small black bushing mentioned in the review should really be a non-issue, if it is please contact me directly for replacement.
      Thanks so much again for you support of Chalktrail - I'm certain you and your kids are going to enjoy the fun for years to come!
      Scott

      Dear Scott,

      ~Not cool~ Just received shipping notification yet several reviews for the product already posted on Fat Brain. Thought Kickstarters were going to be fulfilled first?

      One review mentioned a small black part would be easy to lose. Will we be able to get replacements directly through you?

      - ma

      Just got my shipping email from FBT. My son will be a happy camper in 4 more days!

    11. Creator Tim Domke on August 5, 2012

      How about an update? It's been a while since we've had news and you were expecting to hit a milestone about now.

    12. Creator Scott Baumann on April 14, 2012

      Hi lastSKYsamurai,
      That's a sweet scooter, I'm going to pick on up!
      Chalktrail for BIKE should work perfectly. If it doesn't, we'll refund your pledge amount :)
      Thanks so much for your support!
      Scott

      It's unbelievable - Thanks Rob!

    14. Creator Rob Yates on April 14, 2012

      Thanks! I increased my pledge to $45. Congrats on reaching your goal!!! It was a nail-biter for a bit there.

    15. Creator Scott Baumann on April 14, 2012

      Hi Rob, I'm not exactly sure either so lets do this. Increase your pledge to $45.00 and we'll send you 3 of the "Pledge $15 or more" pledge packages. Will that work?
      Thanks so very much for your support!
      Scott

      Congrats on reaching your goal, well done! just a quick question. I have a Sidewalker Scooter Micro http://www.eco-wheelz.com/catalog/sidewalker-12-micro-kick-scooter-p-309.php do you think a scooter Chalktrail will fit on this?

    17. Creator Rob Yates on April 14, 2012

      I'm still a bit fuzzy on how I can pledge for three Chalktrails for scooter. I have a pledge for one and would love to expand it to three, but I'm not sure how.

      I THINK THIS IS THE START TO GET CHILDREN HEALTHY. I REMEMBER WHEN WE WERE YOUNG WE ENJOYED THE OUT DOORS.MY NEIGHBOR HOOD IS FULL OF BIKING CHILDERN AND I WANT THEM TO ALL HAVE ONE. I ORDERED 4 AND THEY WILL ADVERTISE TO THE OTHERS...

    19. Creator Scott Betts on March 20, 2012

      Chalktrail is so much fun. The kids and adults are smiling as they are looking back and seeing the trails they are leaving. This is a must have for every bike!

    20. Creator Kyle Mahoney on March 20, 2012

      Great idea Scott!

    21. Creator Julie MacKenzie on March 18, 2012

      Awesome, cant wait to get mine!! I got one for all of the kids!

    22. Creator Sarah Wheeler on March 16, 2012

    23. Creator Lang Nelson on March 16, 2012
