      Hey Adrian,
      Can I come pick it up? I'm in Vancouver and I still haven't seen mine in my mail... Did it get lost? Did I miss some details to send you?

      Hi Adam - we have had a couple of similar comments and have looked into it for our future productions. The next production run will have the edges smoothed out a bit more to prevent this from occurring. In the meantime if you sand the inside edges that will take care of the problem straight-away! I hope this helps.
      Cheers

      Is anyone else experiencing the plastic coating of the lock cable being scraped/cut up on the underside by the lower lip of the hole it slides into on the seat post?

      Mine arrived snagged there and it often catches when I slide it in. I wonder if I should try to sand down the edge of the hole or something or just wait for the cable to be worn down enough it does not catch.

      I'm in Toronto and it seems spring has finally arrived. I was hoping my lock would have as well.

      Hi Timothy - we are just waiting for our current shipment (with your InterLock included) to clear UK Customs. Once it clears we would be able to send your current one and if you purchase an additional one we could send it at the same time. Let me know.

      Jon, If I order a second (black) from your website, when would it be dispatched? The one I am waiting for is for my other half and is not the right size for my bike. My post and saddle were stolen over the weekend.

      Hi Stacy - the 27.2 was the default size we were sending out unless you told us otherwise, as per our Update # 19 on November 25th. The options now are to either sell or give your 27.2 to someone and order a 25.4; or return the 27.2 to us in it's package; buy a $15 Shipping Helper; and then we'll send you a 25.4. Send us an email for more details if you want to return it.
      Cheers

      Was the 25.4mm post available with regular kickstarter? I got the 27.2mm in black from my funding but it is too large...
      Is there anything I can do to get the right size? Or do I need to order a new one?

      Hi Mikkel - yes, you are correct. However our ocean freight was delayed by two weeks somewhere on its travel from Taiwan to the UK (where the logistics center is for our European distribution). It has now arrived and is awaiting Customs clearance. As soon as that happens we will have it on it's way to you. Thanks for your patience.

      Dear Adrian

      I am a little confused here. Maybe I misunderstood something. But, I was under the impression, that shipping would start late march '14? I haven't heard anything yet. Can you please supply some specific dates for the shipping?

      I reside in Denmark, and ordered the 25.4mm.

      I received my (2) Interlocks! Unfortunately, the seat posts are too big for my bike and the bike of the person who was to receive the second one. The InterLocks are 27.2 mm, but we need the 25.4 mm diameter version. If anyone out there is interested in buying one or both from me, please contact me via Kickstarter private message. I am also willing to trade my 27.2 mm InterLocks for 25.4 mm InterLocks.

      I have the black-coated aluminum version.

      Regardless, the InterLock looks great and feels like a quality product. I think backers and future customers will be pleased. I'm only disappointed because I can't use mine right away.

      I also have a personal wish, that you would use the update section more, as we get notified on app and mail, and dont have to search the comments section for important info.

      Hi Terry - thanks for expressing your concerns. The extra $15 is strictly voluntary, so you don't have to support us if you don't wish to. The message I sent you on Nov.23,2013 was true and accurate at the time sent - as we were only informed in mid-December that the lock factory was behind in production (as disclosed in our Update #21. We are now completed all manufacturing and all posts are either already shipped from Taiwan or in the process of being shipped - so don't worry, you're not contributing $15 won't delay us any further (but it does help us offset logistics and shipping costs that are significantly higher than we budgeted for - in your case being in the UK the shipping, duty and logistics cost more than the locks!) I hope this helps you understand out situation better.

      Hi Chris,

      Thanks for the kind words about the product!

      We sent the product from Taiwan to a distributor in Australia and to our North America distribution centres on the same day. Our Australian distributor paid for air freight so it came to them first. Kickstarter units are on their way now as I've just said in the update! Our Distributor in Australia was actually a backer through Kickstarter! It takes at least 4 weeks for a boat to cross to Los Angeles, and we already had shipping costs way higher than we'd hoped so there was no way for us to expedite it. Glad to hear that our Australian distributor is on the ball though and getting the product into stores there so quickly!!

      Really excited for all of you to receive your products as soon as possible!!

      Adrian

      http://gallery2.plebeians.net/d/35199-5/20140124-193242-iPhone_001.JPG

      I had a chance to pick it up and handle it at my local bike store today. But i must say its extremely disappointing that you have bothered to bring the product to market before any of the backers have received theirs. Not to mention that i can buy it off the shelf here in Australia well before any of the locks will have even been unloaded to be shipped to backers.

      I get it when estimated timeframes blow out, this is Kickstarter after all. But fulfilling non-backers orders before treating the people who backed the product is the wrong way around.

      Hi Erik - the US delivery of 27.2 black has left Taiwan via ocean freight and should arrive on West Coast January 28th, then clear customs and to our logistics warehouse for individual shipping to Backers. For East Coast they are also on route, different freighter expected in Philadelphia on Feb.17, clear customs, then onto logistics shipping.
      For all other posts and colors manufacturing finishes Jan.24 and ship after that.
      For international orders we are still figuring out final logistics as we have 33 countries to ship to. That will be completed next week and we will post a new update on all this then.

      Hi Jason,

      I'm really sorry about the delays again! I really hoped that we'd be able to get this out much quicker, but dealing in new countries, languages, etc has made this all not possible this first time round!

      What about if we made an "iou" of some sort that you could print out and give to the person as a gift in an envelope? That way you could have something to give them in the meantime even though it's coming a little later than Christmas? Anyone else care to chime in on this option?

      Cheers,
