Dear Kickstarter backers,  

in less than 48 hours we’ve already met our campaign goal of $100,000. This is way beyond any of our expectations and we never imagined we would reach this point so soon.

Your acknowledgment only gives us more energy and enthusiasm to take Smart Wheel even further. We still have more than 38 days ahead of us so please keep following us on this path and let’s see where it takes us.

Don’t hesitate to share any questions or suggestions with us. We’re here to answer you as soon as possible.

Thank you all very, very much.

Stay Fly!

      Great stretch goals!

      Love the idea of motor brake. This way one can use a track frame with no hole for the real brake caliper and even simplify the overall build (of course with a conventional front brake).

      Do you think it is possible, in theory (although maybe it's not for a stretch goal) to build a 16" wheel with the unit? Would be real awesome if you can convert Brompton the folding bike to an assisted e-bike. Since Brompton folds up tiny while providing excellent riding experience, you can easily bring it back up to your apartment or office and recharge.

      Keep up the great work!

      Thank you, your support means a lot to us. We have recently updated our FAQ section where we answer most of your questions.

      Bojan, we're not entirely sure what the point of your post is but the question mark implies you're wondering about something. We have actually talked about similarities (and their lack of) with the Copenhagen Wheel on many occasions now, including in our FAQ:

      My bike wheel is 20 inch, will you provide smart wheel of this size? Do you ship to Beijing China ?

    4. Creator Jeffrey Allen Randorf on October 18, 2013

      I hope I can install a Gates Carbin Drive cog on this wheel - thread-on fixed hub, Shimano Nexus/Alfine or a Hyperglide please!

      Now I think it is time to start putting in some push goals!
