Horns horns and more horns

17 likes

Amazing news everyone, all the necessary pieces for building the horn have arrived at the factory, coincidentally at the same time that I did. The key piece was the plastic cases which come from one of my manufacturer's partners. The team has put a lot of work into preparing the supporting components and so assembly has been quick work. It looks like we'll get the horns to everyone (nationally) before the holidays. The internet is pretty flaky here but I managed to upload this image. They do two honk tests for each unit, once when the circuit board is connected, and another after it is fully assembled. This worker is smiling because we just found the pillow muffled the sound really well which means everyone can take out their earplugs :)

More pictures coming when I have more internet!

      I found a way to upload pictures! It turns out the internet is pretty fast here - just the particular services I'm used to are too slow to be functional.

      I've never used this website before so there is a chance the pictures will go down.

      Thanks so much, it would have been impossible to give up with you all being so encouraging!
      We haven't sent the survey yet for addresses for most people. But if you already sent us your address and have moved then just email info@loudbicycle.com with your new address.
      @Timothy - I don't actually know how international shipping will go yet, but its going to be close.

      That's awesome news. Thanks for sticking with this and not giving up, though I'm sure the project was longer and more difficult than you ever could have anticipated. Looking forward to finally trying my horn!

      Great! Very excited. I've moved since this started. How should I get you my new address for shipping?

      I will be in the States shortly - Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas and Florida, wonder if I will see any in use?

      Will we make Christmas for the non-USA based backers?
