Dear Haul-a-Day backers,

Here is a video project update we made monday night. Wow! All your support has made the first 4 days of the campaign an amazing experience for all of us at Bike Friday. Seeing your support for these bikes created from our love and passion for the freedom of a human powered life is heart warming!

The popularity for the 8spd Haul-a-Day for the $999 price has been so high that we have figured out how to offer more. Now that we are over our $60,000 goal we are able to offer 20 more 8spd Haul-a-Days at the $999 price that will deliver in July 2015 or earlier. Please let your friends know as the first 30 went in 2 days!

What hapens next:

Please keep spreading the word about the Haul-a-Day and the Kickstarter campaign to help us meet our streatch goals.

Meeting our stretch goal of $100,000 enables us to:

  • Hire or re-assign and train 4-5 people full-time to Haul-a-Day production, bringing us to the production level necessary to deliver 1000 Haul-a-Days in 2015. The decision to hire or re-assign depends on how busy our existing production team is.
  • Finish building the tools and infrastructure to set up a complete and efficient production area.

Meeting our super stretch goal of $120,000 enables us to:

  • Finish development of much-requested additions and accessories like an electric assist option, child's trailer bike attachment and several others. We have one prototype of each but no specialized tooling or funds for beta testing. Start development of a child's back tandem conversion attachment.

Sincerely,

Hanna Scholz and the Bike Friday Team
