      Still wanting an update.
      WIsh i knew what my 100 dollars went to.
      I Never got a thank you or update. So sad.
      This was my first and quite possibly last donation to a kickstarter project.

      Pepin and Teresa,

      I thought this project was a great idea, which is why I backed it. Sadly, the last update here predates the end of the fundraising at the end of November 2010. Your linked site http://bikecontrail.com doesn't appear to have any updates since 2010. In searching for ULICU on google, the most recent mention I find is a year old at http://thecityfix.com/blog/friday-fun-colorful-chalk-markings-for-bike-paths/ and doesn't look to have any information on what's been happening. The project page indicates that the account used to create this project logged in today, April 24th 2012.

      I'm sad to see this project fail. As a backer I would appreciate some sort of status update, even if it's only "We couldn't make it work".

      Having now just backed Revolights I thought I'd check in on my other Kickstarter backed project. Wow no updates since November 2010?!!!! Did you enjoy the holiday we funded or what?

      Note to self, do not store bike inside my house. :|

      I would deliberately ride on the most random things I could find just to draw a line on it.

      In Switzerland we have the "bike to work" project where companys can enter kinda competition if their employees build teams and come to work by bike. It takes part every year in June. Bet it would look great on swiss streets to let the teams use contrail. http://www.biketowork.ch/

      Hi Forrest. Thank you for your comment! When riding alone, we recommend using a very bright color like red or yellow. However, the true beauty of Contrail is when people ride with it in groups. That's what we're trying to do with this Kickstarter: put Contrail in the hands of existing non-profits and community organizations so that they can use it on group rides.

      I think the only problem is the line is a bit to thin and I can imagine it being hard to see from your bike if there's only one line, but other than that, cool idea
