      Barry, your rudeness astounds. The brief message below has no apologies, is badly drafted, and puts all off once again for "a few more weeks" for "more info". Is it that hard to write a proper update, in proper English? Is it that hard to apologize for your rudeness? You are the poster boy for how a Kickstarter project should not be run. David's comments below are quite correct - you have a lack of professionalism, no credibility and obviously don't care. Honesty has departed. Evasiveness and rudeness prevail. It is long past time to grow up, man up, and account. A poorly drafted ambiguous message like that just posted only fuels uncertainty, distrust and disgust. This project is well OVER A YEAR LATE. You seem to have an "updated kitchen" and a new washer and dryer. We have nothing from you. Kickstarter advises, below, to be "respectful and considerate". You are neither Barry.

      Some backers contact me privately and I have trusting dialogs with them. Some have signed NDAs and a few are test riders who know more. Some have declined to sign NDAs. Others will still need to wait a few more weeks for more info.

      Aloha all - here is a copy of my message to him sent just now:
      Your lack of professionalism in not communicating is pretty damn bad dude. What is wrong with you?

      Not to mention the lack of a 'real' product. Can't you see that you have no credibility left? Maybe you just don't care.

      If that is the case you should at least just let people know that you don't care and that you are not going to produce the light - and keep all the money for whatever reason.

      Some honesty would be appreciated by most of the people out there instead of the defensiveness and attacks.

      Please consider being nice, professional and communicative.

      It is just very sad that he refuses to update and / or refund but even more so that nothing is delivered. I'm an ER nurse - ride daily to work - bought other lights already of course. His behavior and language remind me of some of my psych patients which is why it is sad. Of course I am frustrated and angry too - like most of the people who have commented. I long ago gave up any hope that this project was 'real'. Some people live in a dream and that is real - but only to them. Maybe the silence is only because he realizes that anything he says will not be believed and that only the product will solve the issue. Vaporware.

      There are a lot of great lights out there. Best of luck everyone.

      Today on www.bikelighting.net Barry is still promising "April 2104 delivery".

      Sure Barry. Remember this used to be January, 2014 delivery.

      No, wait [Barry's mantra] for this current page, the Kickstarter page, says "February 2013 delivery".

      The last "update" from Barry was February 5th, 2014 - coming up to two and a half months ago.

      This project has been appallingly run. Barry has no communication skills. He is selling on his other website the light which has zero chance of an April delivery. The 249 backers here are ignored, mistreated, and rudeness rules.

      Kickstarter's rules require regular updates.

      But, here we have, instead, rudeness, silence, and playing ostrich.

      A couple backers have taken the time to communicate directly with "howcanwenothelpyou" at "barrybeams.com" - still offline by the way [which is hardly encouraging!] - but Barry, or an assistant, only responds, late, with a benign brushoff, and fails to copy the other backers.

      Barry, you took some $ 32K about a year and a half ago. No lights. No refund. No update.

      How can you look at yourself in the mirror knowing your project has been, to date, a complete failure, or perhaps you don't care?

      Man up Barry and account today.

      @Sami,

      Thanks for the update. I would have loved to hear this from the horse's mouth last month, when they apparently figured out that they would blow their April delivery deadline. But there's a silver lining - I was able to use my REI dividend to buy a NiteRider 550 like the one my wife has. No more grappling with velcro and battery cables for me! REI is running a 20% off one item sale right now for anyone else still using a subpar light.

      FWIW I am still looking forward to receiving this light. I just wish that Barry would level with us so that folks like me would not have been waiting expectantly and could instead just go buy a decent light for the interim.

      @Jam; I've been riding with Light & Motion Urban 500 & as of recently Urban 550. They're light, bright, have a good runtime for the weight and a useful beam pattern (although round so bit of wasted beam on road). Most importantly, they exist. $112 on Amazon.

      Creator Sami Laine on April 2

      I emailed howmaywehelpyou@barrybeams.com on March 8th asking when my light will be delivered, and got a response three weeks later on March 29th:
      ----
      Sorry for the delays. Currently the circuit board is being delayed due to an essential component being out of stock worldwide, and listed for April 28, 2014 to be in stock again. Its currently only available on the spot market in China at three times the net cost of the original approved BOM that we have with the circuit board maker. That takes our production costs significantly over budget. Thus, we are in a back and forth process in dealing with international manufacturers which is delaying our delivery estimates.

      Please again accept our apologies for how long this is taking to get our first production run complete.
      ----------

      I replied, asking again for a delivery estimate, based on what they know now and received this:

      -----------
      We just cannot make an estimate date given we creating everything from scratch and availability in the market is unpredictable. We do not want to drive expectations without a clear prospective on the manufacturing side. We will certainly let you know once the production stage is finished, and units are going through the assembly stage for final shipping.
      -------------

      Just FYI to all of you. Barry may not have a clue as to how to treat crowd funding backers or how to run outsourced product manufacturing projects, but he may not have given up yet on this project. Only time will tell... 498 days and counting!

    11. Missing_small

      Creator Scott Napier on March 31

      John, thank you for acquiring this information, such as it is, and sharing.

      It’s interesting that the tone of both emails is much more conciliatory than we have seen from Barry to date and I would guess the “second” person is now addressing people. In my mind ,based on his previous communication style, this is a plus. I no longer feel like I’m a complete idiot for asking a basic question or requesting information.

      I also find it interesting that this person keeps mentioning they are working hard for the “investors” but have not logged into the website to see what the investors might be asking/saying since March 21. 15 days until the next update is at least somewhat consistent with the vague updates that we typically see every 60 to 90 days, so no surprises there.

      The external website keeps promising April deliveries, so I will keep my one last hope for this project alive that the update in 15 days is that the final production is happening (I think Barry mentioned he is doing the final assembly) and lights will soon be shipping. If the update is refuting that possibility and continues to provide the miserly snippets of information I believe that it may be necessary to elevate this to Kickstarter and allow them to wrestle information from the small 2 person company.

      For me (like everyone else), it is not the tone of the communication to date (though that has not been spectacular), nor the delay (they happen), it is the complete lack of information. Yes there was one point where information needed to be limited due to patents, etc and as determined by the attorneys, but at this point it is not necessary. We are not buying plans to build a fission reactor, just a bicycle light. To add to the frustration for me, is that Barry has backed two other projects. Both of them have had substantial issues and delays, but even as a non-interested party I can tell you exactly what steps they have taken and where they are at.

      He has good examples of what communication in project could look like and so the assumption can no longer be that he is new to development and crowd-funding, but simply unwilling to acknowledge the common courtesy due to us. Like I said I have one last hope, but I’m out of patience. Hope for good news in a couple of weeks.

      Fed up with Barry’s failures to account, I sent an email to Barry at his howcanwehelpyou@barrybeams.com. It should really read “howcanwenothelpyou.com.

      And, eventually, I got two messages:

      (a) The last one:

      Thank you for your input. While we have not posted some recent updates on the website, we have made this email available to everyone who is in search of clarification. Like I mentioned previously, our priority is in delivering the lights.

      Sincerely,

      The Barry Beams Team

      [This is after I wrote that the first message was really not helpful. That message reads below.]

      (b) The first one:

      I deeply apologize for the delay, but please understand we are not ignoring investors. In fact, we are just two people working very hard to deliver a light to you and the other investors.

      At this time, we are finishing negotiating production materials and costs as well as assembly. What we ask is that you understand when we conducted the Kickstarted project, our light was in the design stage. We could not jeopardize our product by producing/delivering without a patent. The patent took longer than expected but we are now concluding the production stage, as mentioned above.

      We are in a very critical time but an update will be posted on the Kickstarter page within the next 15 days.

      Thank you for your understanding and patience.

      The Barry Beams Team

      ---------------------
      So, what do we have? A self-serving and non-helpful attitude where Barry (and his one other team member] have only looked after themselves by ensuring they had a patent. And, they are still “negotiating” production materials, costs and assembly. They have only had some 18 months to do just that. So, if any of you really think your lights are showing up anytime soon, it is more likely that Elvis will come sing for your dinner tonight. The Barry Team’s priority is “delivering the lights”. Sure! Don’t wait by mailbox. Sure, they are not ignoring investors. Sure!!!

      This is the worst Kickstarter project I've ever invested in.

    13. Missing_small

      Creator Mark on March 26

      No matter how much anyone asks for a refund it won't happen. The lights will never show up. Barry should be held responsible for his actions, but that won't happen either.

      We were led to believe there were rules Barry had to abide by, and Kickstarter failed miserably to hold him accountable.

      End of story. Is this not criminal?

      I can see Barry logged in here on Mar-15, which makes this ongoing silence disappointing. Can someone in the west coast timezone give him a ring and find out what's going on? :-) I did send a private message last week but no response. I'm guessing that because it's been so long we have no recourse with our credit card companies to get a reimbursement for non-delivery of goods. Of all of the kickstarter projects I've backed (including some that couldn't deliver) this is the absolute worst in terms of communication from the project owner. Good lessons here in how not to engage with your customers. Barry, can I please have my money back - you don't even have to talk to me, just refund it quietly and I'll go away, my lesson learned. If you can't deliver anything at all and won't refund our money, then perhaps the $175 I have you could buy me an explanation?

      Yet another week has gone by. Still not a word from Barry. The silence is just rude. His website has lights supposedly being delivered this April - http://www.bikelighting.net/order-online.html - changed from January, which didn't happen. On the right side of this screen we still see estimated delivery February, 2013. That was 13 months ago Barry. Other Kickstarter projects post full details, often, when delayed. Here, Barry plays ostrich, his head in the sand, his 249 backers left in the dark, and not a peep. Time to man up Barry.

      Barry also says, in the same listing "I'm allergic to most republicans".

      Following this string I think it would be more interesting what the next delay ploy to be, sidestep a real response, etc. Barry's next post will most likely again not be an update but some blathering on about things which have nothing to do with delivering a light.

      Kickstarter is remiss in reigning Barry in. I will never enter into another project, and will let anyone who asks know what a superbly run organization this is. The taking of money under the pretense of delivering something given the rules of fair play have been violated here. Kickstarter and Barry are the violator's of our trust and money. Any reasonable person would come to the same conclusion.

      Barry, we're now in March 2014 and I've bided my time since I last wrote in March of 2013. Can you please do us the courtesy of an update of some sort? I echo all of John's comments below - and it really is a case of basic courtesy to keep folk you've taken $32,475 from at least a little bit informed. You have your patent and are locked in with a manufacturer, so there is no reason that I can see that you don't give us an update. Basic courtesy would be to reply to John's comment below at the very least. If you can't make good on delivering the lights, let us know and we can all work something out.

      Barry - other than a note about the "survey", you've been silent once again for weeks and weeks. Do you not have any sense of responsibility? Did your mother not raise you to be polite? You took all this money over a year ago and have never delivered any lights. You refuse to refund the money. You don't provide updates on any proper schedule. Do you not have the decency to advise all 249 backers where you are with this long delayed project? It is long past time to be courteous to your backers and advise them what is really happening.

      The battery tabs are done, and a work of art in stamped and bent brass.
      The rest of the board assembly is dragging. Not going to make January deliveries. The money is there, the components and agreed BOM is there, its just taking seemingly forever for them to get going. The big ++ that I have is that the board maker and assembler is the same company making the tabs. So its one overall deal for the completed board assembly. That's saving a lot of money.

      Hey Barry,
      Hope this finds you well in your endeavor. In your last update (December 7) you noted that you had anticipated sending the first of the lights out about this time depending on how production of some items went.
      " As long as the circuit board production and assembly moves forward according to listed lead times, I expect to send out the first deliveries by the end of January"

      I know I'm jumping the gun a bit as we have a few days left yet, but I was hoping that you had some shiny new boxes of circuit boards show up on your doorstep today as they had all weekend to travel. Still checking main everyday in case you have been too busy assembling and can't update.

      I can't help but contrast this with another Kickstarter project I'm involved in ( A Better Bicycle Bell). They, too, have slipped their delivery date (from Nov '13 to Feb '14) but their frequent, detailed, coherent updates and even an offer to refund $ to those who aren't happy about the delay really set the example for how a Kickstarter project should be run. This one still feels like a sham.

      The Business
      I've studied Silicon Valley business successes and failures for even longer than I've been experimenting with lights. As challenging as designing the product, I've applied the principles of Lean Startups to setting up an infrastructure to get the products made.
      I don't have a fancy box or package worked out, and still have to write the instructions, and I'm still tweaking the final shape of the handlebar mount. Otherwise, the key design goals have been met.
      The marketing and distribution agreement signed with a well known bicycle equipment company as of 10/15/2012 enables deals to move forward that I worked out with vendors who already supply and manufacture for large electronics companies.
      By pledging now, if you want a Barry Beam, you will get your light.

      Ok, like all of the other backers, I am getting frustrated with the lack of response from this project creator. This is the worst project I've backed, because not only have we not gotten updates in a reasonable amount of time, but the creator also acts in an arrogant, uncooperative and irresponsible manner. Other comments have referenced his Candlepower Forum post, and it probably behooves all of us to read the entire post, not just page 3:

      http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/showthread.php…

      Unless we get some real, material updates soon, it would appear that this project is in direct violation of the Kickstarter terms of service, as indicated below. This guy has a history of non-cooperation, and I'm afraid we are not going to see this project be completed.

      And for those of you who think that the posters here are not reasonable, this week I literally just received the reward for the first project which I backed, which funded in April 2012. We had some issues with them as well, but they did communicate progress, and I was willing to wait over a year for a payoff to my investment. This is also a message that this project creator hasn't seemed to embrace.

      It's just a shame that I don't live in the Bay Area anymore, as there would be many other means available to resolve this issue.

      Creator Scott Napier on November 29

      I'm also starting to get frustrated. It's been nearly 3 months since the last update pertaining to the light production. I've done development and know there are delays, but communication is key. It's interesting that of the other two projects that Barry has backed, one hit some setbacks as well. They update monthly with in-depth informative information. The backers for that project might be facing disappointment over total delays, but I would imagine are willing to wait patiently as they feel like they are part of the process.
      I’ve seen comments here get more and more negative which will happen I guess when there are no other voices chiming in. It is very hard to remain optimistic in the face of all the negativity but as there doesn’t seem to be anything forthcoming from Barry, I am finally at a point where I wonder if the project is simply dead and I should begin to pursue a refund.

    The Barry Beams Handlebar Mount. Two separate mount and strap units with mounting bolt. When used together back to back, these are a universal any angle flashlight, bike light, or small camera mount unlike anything else. This replaces Light and Motion and Night Rider and small camera screw on brackets too. Nearly indestructible hockey board plastic combined with a high density o-ring dampener and thick and wide rubber straps make this the sturdiest light weight shock absorbing mount imaginable. Full 360 degree rotation lets you mount top down, sideways, upright, and any odd angle your handlebars or aerobars can challenge it with. Plus I'll give you a pull in a headwind, and a huge thank you for supporting me to become the next big Kickstarter success.

    Try out a Barry Beam for a week, and get a Barry Beams riding cap too. The cap features the Barry Beams logo on a brightly visible riding cap. Or if your "answer is 42", donate to help support my dream of launching the future of bicycle and tactical lighting and I'll be happy to give you a pull in a headwind in a hailstorm if we happen to meet up on rides where this is know to happen, and a huge thank you for supporting the next big Kickstarter success. You will need to pick it up from me here in the SF Bay Area, or make other arrangements.
