We know it’s been a while since we last drafted an update but we want to provide you with the ‘latest-of-the-latest’ information and then we keep on pushing the timing of our updates back hoping that we’ll have even more precise information the following week. There has been a lot of back-and-forth with our manufacturers to make sure the parts are in the expected quality according to our technical plans.
So here’s where we stand -
Regarding the frames: the final production has started, in the next weeks or two we’ll be driving to the production site to shoot photos and videos, so that we can share it with you. We’ve reserved a slot for the assembly end of July, and your bikes will be going directly from there. On that note, I’d kindly like to ask you to send me your shipping address via kickstarter. A notification to complete your backer survey for your shipping information will follow soon.
As a start-up company we’re committed to pushing the boundaries of the bike industry and to providing you with a very special product with many innovative design components. The VELLO bike, the new generation of folding bikes, will be sent to you as soon as possible – though a bit later than initially planned. But we won’t disappoint you!
Below some pictures of one of the latest deliveries to our workshop, the specially made mudguards that fold along with your bike!
Aside from the most important aspect, the production and getting a high-quality product to you with as little delay as possible, we’re also proud to be invited to be part of the Red Dot Award Ceremony taking place tomorrow in Germany as the VELLO Speedster won the “Red Dot: Best of the Best” in Product Design. We’ll be posting pictures on our facebook page about the event: https://www.facebook.com/vello.bike.
Thank you very much for your continued support!
