WE DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks everyone who donated to our project. This completely outstripped our expectations and we're looking forward to a busy couple of months!

When we first began planning the Kickstarter campaign, we were unsure about whether we would reach our $10,000 goal, and we certainly did not expect to meet it within 48 hours! We're blown away by these numbers, and also by the enthusiasm that people have for this project. It is so much fun making something that gives people such joy. We cannot wait for you all to play with the Velocipede in person.

Over the last 25 days of this campaign, in addition to obsessively refreshing the page, we've been busy figuring out how to pull this off. We did test prints of the t-shirts, got our new machine up and running, learned all about tax structures, got a fed ex account, and we put in our first bulk order of bamboo. We think we're going to learn a lot about making these in the next few months, and we hope a find a way to bring these to even more people soon.

Many people have been asking us how they can order a Velocipede now that our campaign is over. At the moment, we are not prepared to take pre-orders, but we hope to produce these commercially in the future. For now, we are focusing on the Kickstarter campaign, making sure that we do a good job with the commitments we've already made. If you are interested in ordering a Velocipede in the future, please sign up for our mailing list (we promise that we won't clog your inbox) and keep track of us on Facebook and Twitter. And if you're really eager, you can play with the digital simulacrum on our website.

Thanks again for your interest and support! 

David, Dano & Hannah
