Have a question?
@Chuck Marshall: It looks gorgeous. Works fine, but not quite as smoothly as in the video... I strongly suspect it'll get better as it gets broken in. The finish on the bamboo is wonderful!
I just got mine today . . . #232 . . . it is awesome! Nicely done Dave and gang! Thank you!
@Forrest Davie: Did you get the actual velodipede? How's it look/work?
Got mine today! Thank you!
Hey guys, any shipping updates?
I do hope everything is going smoothly for you guys... or at least, as smooth as it can be.
Rob, quite a lot is happening now that production is churning along at full bore, and frankly, at this juncture, a bi-weekly update makes a heck of a lot of sense! Consider it done! Our first bi-weekly installment will drop over the next couple of days.
It would be great if you could even provide some sort of simple update say bi-weekly. Would be nice to know what you are doing.......even if its the same thing..
Hi Chuck! We hit a little production road bump this weekend and have been working to figure it out. We will get that update posted as soon as we can!
Hi Chuck, thanks for asking! We will send out our monthly update over the weekend.
Any new updates?
Update? It would be nice to send out an update instead of just posting your comments here
Great to hear. Thanks!
We know a lot of people are hoping to get their Velocipedes in time for Christmas, and we're doing everything we can to meet that deadline. Production has started in earnest, and this weekend we're moving into a new workshop that can better handle our scaled-up production. Surveys will be sent out as we move closer to shipping each reward.
Is there a survey coming, as with other KS projects? Also, is there any update on progress and timeline? I am hoping to give the Velocipedes I ordered as Christmas gifts.
Velocipede that I can not ignore. I backed for Velocipede. Finished product is a white crankshaft. However, the crank shaft of the $15 reward is a natural material such as lead. I want a lead-colored Velocipede of the crankshaft. Thank you for your consideration.
would like a update video,
Loved the original sculpture, can't wait to get ours!
There is a chance that we will offer a DIY kit in the future, but we are not offering one during this campaign. See the FAQ for a more detailed explanation.
Just wondering if there's a chance of you offering a kit including all the parts sanded and prepped, so we can assemble it ourselves?
Absolutely. For anyone interested in multiple rewards, just increase your pledge to reflect the total amount of combined rewards and send us a message to confirm your order.
I'm a backer ($100) and I'd also like to get an additional crankshaft in order to try to DIY another one 'cause I think it would be cool to make one. Can I order an additional crankshaft by adding $15 to my pledge?
It's expensive but oh so cool! I just had to get one!
Hi Rob, thank you for your interest! We're not against that option, but we're not prepared to offer that at this time... sorry!
Any change you would consider a reward tier that would offer up the cut files? Are you using .dxf? .ai? What design program are you using? Autocad? Vectric? V-Carve? Aspire?
We will send out an update if we encounter any delays, but yes, we're doing our best to get everything shipped in time for Christmas.
I have a geeky family member that I would like to gift this to for xmas, I see Dec 2012 is the estimated delivery...is it likely to arrive in time for Xmas?
This is a great project. I would like to see lots more funding! No reward for me, just keep that total growing.
I am the builder of another popular local walking machine and would love a chance to see your full scale model. Would this be a possibility?
I agree with Joel, a diy kit would be the coolest.
Congrats on reaching your goal! I hope it keeps growing.
Adding in a tier that rewards backers with the driveshaft for a DIY project would sure make my day! And would take my money! ;-)
