(Thank You x 2215) + What's Next
We launched the Kickstarter campaign exactly one month ago with high hopes. But even in our wildest dreams, we could not have predicted the incredible response that we received from the Kickstarter community. 2215 backers pledged over $430,000, which is totally mindblowing. We can't thank you enough - none of this would have been possible without your support and enthusiasm.
What to expect now.
We're going to take the weekend to recover, but expect an update from us next week with details regarding the backer survey schedule. Similar to our previous Kickstarter campaigns, we'll be using a great service called BackerKit, which lets us collect and manage the reward and shipping information for all 2000+ backers seamlessly. Be on the lookout for that update next week.
Going forward, we'll be communicating regularly regarding the status of testing, production, and fulfillment. We cannot wait to get the seatposts on your bikes, but there are quite a few steps between now and then. Rest assured that we'll keep you informed throughout the process with detailed, transparent updates. And as always, don't hesitate to communicate with us via Kickstarter comments, Facebook, or email at email@example.com.
Know someone who missed the Kickstarter?
Lazy friend? Indecisive spouse? Skeptical riding partner? Well, unfortunately, they missed out forever on Kickstarter preorder pricing (feel free to rub it in). The good news is that we'll still be accepting preorders (albeit at a higher price and later delivery window) via Indiegogo In-Demand. After all, everyone deserves to be comfortable on their bike, right?
One more time
I know we've said it a lot, so we'll say it one more time: thank you. The Kickstarter community helped us launch Redshift Sports in 2013, and we feel a deep gratitude for your continued support. We think the ShockStop Seatpost is our best product yet, and we can't wait for you to try it for yourself.
