FIX IT STICKS - SHIPPED!

2 comments

Hello friends of Fix It Sticks,

Every backer we have info for is shipping!

We are still missing about 20 people's address info. Contact me if you think you are one of those who did NOT fill out the survey (info@fixitsticks.com). Everyone else, give it a week or 2 for the shipments to arrive worldwide.

I would like to reiterate that we are offering a deal for Kickstarter backers on our site for the time being. Check out and enter "Kickstarter!" and receive $7.00 off your order. I also added a single stick option to the website under the custom section. http://www.fixitsticks.com/products/build-your-own-fix-it-sticks

I would like to thank everyone for the amazing support to get this idea up and running. It is intensely gratifying seeing the sticks out in the wild and being used by all sorts of people. Mechanics, plumbers, auto technicians, camera people, skiers, snowboarders, ect. 

Please find us on Facebook for more regular updates. I will likely wrap up with the KS community through this method 1-2 more times, but other than that I will on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fixitsticks and on twitter @briandavis3000

Our website www.fixitsticks.com will be the first place for you to hear about new product developments. I will be in touch later this year with my next idea.

As the season rolls on keep your photos and stories coming. It is awesome!

Finally, please show the sticks to your local bike shops and ask them to stock FIX IT STICKS!  We would love to have more dealers and distributors worldwide.

Thank you all so much for an amazing experience and have a great ride!

Brian Davis, creator of Fix It Sticks

    Perhaps you want nothing but better bike tools to exist in this world. This is your level! In exchange, I will promise to ride my bike lots this summer. I owe that to you! So when I think I am too busy for a ride, I will remember my friends in this category and just say...I must ride, FOR THEM!
